ZeroDegrees Westgate St, Cardiff

ZeroDegrees Westgate St, Cardiff
Originally uploaded by Mooganic.

The Cardiff branch of this microbrewery chain is housed in the listed facade of the old Westgate St., Art Deco garage. Formerly a car park and Taxi office. A much more interesting use, particularly as the former covering of white paint has been stripped away from the facade to reveal the detail. Mike Packwood (a learned connoisseur of Cardiff located hostelries, now based in the fine city of Liverpool) and I often used to muse on the possibilities of turning this building into a bar. I believe we thought the best name would have been "bar...code" or perhaps Bar-mitzvah or somesuch idiot styling.
