so how do you describe a place that used to be a brothel after ww II, then was left alone for a while; got a new owner, adash of fresh paint and a crowd of crazy artists that keeps flocking in? exactly. nice beergarden in the backyard in summer.watch the "art brothel" [kunst-puff] during the art de cologne fair inoctober/november.
