Abandoned Storefront Repurposed As Public Coat Check
The StadsGarderobe in the northern Dutch city of Groningen, provides a central location to store your personal items.
Groningen is a fairly large university city in the North of the Netherlands with an active nightlife and a bustling downtown. Since many of the city’s most popular bars and clubs are localized within a several block radius, patrons will tend to leave their coats and other belongings at a single location while they move from one bar to the next, hoping to retrieve them at the end of the night. Of course as the evening progresses, finding where they initially left their coats becomes more difficult and less likely. Consequently, this results in an elaborate, and often futile, nightly scavenger hunt as individuals anxiously retrace their steps.
