Kato Paphos Part 3 - Bar Street
According to Tripadvisor, this used to be a place for traditional Cypriot food. This begs the question, why was it called Edelweiss?
Now we come to the first big casualty. This used to be a nightclub called Lineker's. I had a look on their Facebook page. They closed in 2014 and originally planned to re-open the year after, but were unable to do so. The page is quite colourful and is an interesting read if you like a bit of cloak and dagger.
I had an extensive look around the interiors of a number of establishments on Bar Street. I will publish my findings in a separate blog, dedicated to Urban Exploring. As this blog (the one you are reading) is meant to be more of a tourist walkthrough, I shall only include this one interior scene. As you can see, it has seen better days.
Lineker's At Night
After I took the pictures for this article I felt a bit guilty. It is unfair writing an article on a place that only comes alive at night if I only visit during the day. So I returned a couple of days later for some evening snaps.
I took this night picture to compare it with the one you saw a couple of pictures ago. The only thing remarkable about it is the cat. I was unaware it was there when I took the picture, as it was in darkness.
