Fitzroy-based regulars to the area might remember this particular piece of Gertrude Street real estate as Claypots. It’s undergone a transformation to bounce back into the dining/drinking scene as Rue de Fleurus and the transformation, it seems, continues.
The description of this revamped venue by the artsy-pants owners themselves is “transformative”. Case in point; what might be a vegetarian restaurant one night of the week, will be Claypots again on another.
Aaron McKenzie, Wayne Markus and Renan Goskin are the owners behind it all who are playing with the diary dates – ready to mix it up from film screenings to functions to art events.
It’s all about the full assault on the senses – art, food, wine, coffee and music. Even the patrons have license to play their uniquely individual part in the evolution revolution with that piano in the corner just begging to be played. That’s right, go on and play it.
The content of the gallery will chop and change with the menu offerings. It’s the type of unpredictability that will inspire return visits just to see what happens next. Kind of like a great book with more twists and turns than can have a stick poked at it.
