Hung up its hat

It’s always worth looking up!
Former Stalus Bar, Stefan cel Mare Central Park, Chisinau, Moldova, July 2019

This deserted building was a former bar and restaurant, going under the names of Stalus Bar, Guguta Restaurant and Restaurant Noroc. As far as I can tell the building dates back to 1980 / 1981, and the domes over the door were added to represent the hat of a much-loved fictional character, Guguta, after whom the place was then named. Little Guguta with a big hat is so polar there is now a desert named after him, but that popularity didn’t give the restaurant a long life, sadly.
