This bar looks great in that Post-Industrial Giant Recycled Scraps kind of way. The tables and barstools are exactly what tables and barstools should be - eye-catching, multi-purpose (one can only image what the other purpose might be), indestructable. Most of the cast-iron bits were surely cogs in a factory that hasn't existed for decades.
NoD isn't only a decent bar to recline, vegetate, drink beer, or surf the free wifi. The gallery and experimental theatre have held some weird and wonderful evenings, however -- The last show I saw here was Battleship Potemkin with a live soundtrack of unlikely yet fantastic music.
And of course, the club downstairs is the stuff of legend.
