Restaurant | "Converted Chapel ....."

Quote:
Well where do I start?! .... When I first heard about this place I thought, naa that can not be true. But this is an old Chapel that has been converted into a luxury bar. From outside this place looked very attractive with the old setting, beautifully designed structure, a kind of mix between old and modern. From the inside there was also no disappointment, all the old colored glass was still in place, the old seats which were once part of the church were still in place on the upper tier, this was a great place to sit down and watch live sport on the big screen and also you could look down and watch the people forming downstairs, pick out the nice girls lol...., down stairs there was also ...Read More
