Tucked away in the Kelvin Grove Urban Village is Room 60, a bar and 'cultural space'. Now ordinarily, accusations of pretentiousness are soon to follow when an establishment calls itself a 'cultural space', but Room 60 manages just the right blend of hipster chic without becoming too big for its boots.
Room 60 (Shop 22, Carraway Street, Kelvin Grove) is a small bar that offers a unique selection of drinks (like tanqueray gin or elderflower spritzers for the designated driver), a small range of bar snacks and a varied program of events. There are performances by spoken word artists, games and film nights and discussions on theory and philosophy, to name a few. There's also the emerging artist initiative, which supports artists of all levels.
You know how in American sitcoms, especially those set in New York City, the twenty-something characters live in apartments that are meticulously decorated in an eclectic, bohemian style? That's what the interior of Room 60 is like – orange pleather couches, chintz armchairs, loads of statement vases and lamps, a bookshelf full of romance novels and a wall decorated with shoes. It's kinda like hanging out at your very cool friends share house in West End.
