We’re on the ground floor of an apparently common communist block of apartments. But the block on Campineanu 24 street has an interesting history: it’s part of the first Romanian-designed socialist-modernist apartment complex.

Built in the late 50s, the block was one of the first ones to showcase Romanian communist design and engineering, instead of the more common soviet imports and it was built to show off what new urban life could be like for the rest of the country.

The immediate area is traditionally home to a many musical instruments stores. Even this space has previously hosted a music shop, unwarily predicting BAR TON.
