and now artists
Why locals love it
What use to be a guesthouse with rooms rented by the hour to prostitutes and sailors is nowadays rented to artists or people with projects and need a space to put the project in progress. There is a café/bar that can also be a space for concerts, lectures and other events, also a bookshop theme (love/eroticism) and a hairdresser.
Why you should visit it
The building is part of the reconstruction of Downtown, the building’ stairs are the same since right after the 1755 earthquake. Red is the color on the walls, old pictures of seminude ladies in shy erotic poses, burlesque posters of cabarets and an atmosphere of a Madame’s house late nineteenth century.
If you are curious about the bookshop, look for the room with the pole and if you want, try a pole dance.
