If you find yourself in Melbourne, Curtin House is on my list of places to definitely visit. Everything about this inconspicuous six-storey building exudes cool. Curtin House is home to the Cookie bar and restaurant on level one, live music venue The Toff in Town on level two, and on level three you will find one of my favourite bookstores, the Metropolis book store (which stocks mono.kultur) alongside one of my favourite fashion boutiques, Someday (which stocks the likes of Bernhard Willhelm, Cosmic Wonder, Original Fake, BBC, Bless and a comprehensive selection of PAM). On level six you’ll find the offices of web developer Tundra and publisher Barrie Barton’s Right Angle Studio and on the very top his rooftop cinema. And this is all just a sample of what you will come across in Curtin House.
