In London, a bar combines utility and enjoyment
Look Mum No Hands is a fusion between a café and a bike repair shop and has created a real life space for cyclists.
Located in Shoreditch, Look Mum No Hands is a café that is inspired by the world of cycling. Bikes can be parked outside easily. The interior is decorated using bike wheels hanging from the ceiling or by cycling team pendants.
Beyond a passion for bikes, this friendly business is also a repair workshop. Five mechanics work full-time and repair the bikes of their customers.
So what’s the appeal of the café? Having your bike repaired gives you the chance to take a break and increase your knowledge, to communicate and exchange with others on your shared passion.
Over time Look Mum No Hands has become a brand in its own right, which offers jerseys, helmets, hats and even jumpers and t-shirts. Customers can buy them after enjoying a coffee and a home-made cake; it’s also possible to buy them on the shop’s website: http://www.lookmumnohands.com/.
