MiniBar Austin – Launch of Hackney House

Over in Texas we are getting ready for MiniBar tonight. The great and somewhat unbelievable news is that we managed to get over 500 sign ups. Below are a few pictures from the opening of Hackney House. The guys from the council have done a splendid job in making it feel quite Hackneyish – a bit trashy, warehousey, yet charming in that East End way we all love. Just a shame it doesn’t smell of Bangladeshi curry…..

Below just a few pics – one is the mayor of Austin saying a a few words and the other one needs no explanation. I just love the trash can in the background.
