Ye Olde Yelza

Yelza Bar was a very cozy, homely little bar on Gertrude St I frequented quite often in my early 20's, all those years ago it now seems!
It had the most amazing courtyard filled with bamboo and other such tropical plants, and the front bar was scattered with vintage armchairs, elaborate gold mirrors and the most fantastic flocked wallpaper that was lick-able, not that I ever tried it….. ok maybe once after many bottles of stout!

Tonight I went back for the beautifully lovely Mollie, for her leap year Birthday!  A big celebration as Mollie is born on the 29th of Feb so can only really celebrate every leap year and this year is a leap year… not that that stopes anyone!

Yelza is now called Sentido Funf;  And whilst the wallpaper and vintage furniture are gone, it's still a very eclectic, cute little place to head to for a few drinks or to dance the night away in the now undercover courtyard and bar.

Nothing else left for the night but to crawl into bed with a wee dram of the most amazingest whisky in the world - Ardbeg of course, and post a few pictures for you:  

Happy Leap Year Birthday Mollie
Tropicalish plants still there, it was dark, you'll have to go see for yourself
Lights, lamps
and more lights
Front bar
You know I'm quite partial to a peacock

Mmmmmm….. Ardbeg!!!
