Why Up Cafe is special ?

Up Cafe, located in a faux roofed wooden house – appears to have been swept up by a cyclone, and dumped with its roof firmly in the ground. Step inside and you’ll see a continuation of the topsy-turvy theme. All the furniture – cabinets, a full dining set and even a white grand piano – are suspended, seemingly miraculously, from the ceiling. Tuck into the cafe’s specialities – beef steak with rice, beef spaghetti and mango shake – while feeling like you’re perched on the ceiling. The cafe is inspired by an upside-down building in Finland; a picture of which Up Cafe’s owner stumbled across in an architecture magazine when he was a child.

Walking into this place is enchanting, vines hanging from trellises, it's like stepping into another world, away from the noise and chaos of the city! The café itself looks like an upside down house, and the décor inside doesn't disappoint either, with a piano and tables suspended on the ceiling! The food and drinks are also good! I would go again :)
