The Croft Institute

The Croft Institute was inspired by David Cronenberg and has the look and feel of that of a laboratory. Spread over across three floors, the ground is the lab, the second floor looks like the waiting room and bathroom of a hospital, and the third floor looks like a 1930s gym! The entire place has a creepy air to it with test tubes, beakers and wheelchairs dominating the decor. They do have comfortable high stools and low sofas and a good selection of beers and cocktails, and Vodka that is distilled on site. A lot of artsy folks can be found hanging around here.
