So what exactly is Old Mullae you might ask? It is basically a cafe, pub, and restaurant that used to be a factory since the 1930’s. It has now been remodeled into an amenity where you can enjoy beer and good food. It is alternatively known as ‘The Creative Zone’ because of the way it has reused the building and also because of the artwork that can be seen inside. The owner is also known to be an architect herself. What is even more interesting are the types of machinery inside the place, which have been reinvented for different purposes.
