One of my favourite sections of our magazine is This Vintage Town, as it puts into paper form one of my favourite activities. I love heading to a new place and discovering all the vintage and second hand treasure and nerding out in the museums, galleries and historical sites that it has to offer. I have developed pretty good instincts for hunting this out, but sometimes I neglect to find a secret spot or two and so we decided to create a guide for our readers to avoid any missed opportunities!
This Vintage Town has gone through a few incarnations, but I think we have finally nailed the look and feel that I was originally after. Our Art Director, the talented Nathalie Gregory, suggested that we turn the guide on its side and make it into a "cut out and keep" section so when Glory Days readers go travelling you can simply take your guide when you are out and about, rather than having to wrangle with the whole magazine!
Here's a video that we created to show you how it works in our previous issue...
The current owners, John and Michelle, purchased the dilapidated building in 2007 and spent two years breathing new life into the atrium, rooms, restaurant and bars, resulting in a host of awards for its food, service and quirky décor.
If there is one spot not to be missed, it is the divine House Bar (pictured above), which has been fully refurbishing in the Art Deco style that it was originally designed in. Sip cocktails here while listening to jazz in the Atrium, close your eyes and revel in the elegance and luxury of times gone by.
