Rusty Gate

I was wandering along King St and spotted this wonderful rusty gate positioned between an older restored building and a newly constructed one and it looked as if it belonged to neither. I have since discovered that this walkway leads to a Spanish tapas restaurant called Patria that has just recently opened. Love that metalwork!

It's a beautiful gate and seems somehow appropriate for a tapas restaurant. I love tapas!

Very cool! Now if only I could slip the letter "C" in between the "I" and the "A", and it would say "Patricia", and that baby could have MY name on it! Ha ha! Although I don't go by the name Patricia! Just saying, though!

Nice catch!

It's perfect for the entrance to a Spanish tapas bar Pat...Tapas is so popular right now, even Perth is catching on :)

Very attractive, love it!

The gate is very nice and I just noticed the name, "Patria," across the top; beautiful scroll work. For some reason, though, I started singing Hoyt Axton's song, "Rusty Old Halo"!

Great gate, but the sign is almost too subtle!

Looks all the better for being rusty.

Adore how the sign is so beautifully worked into the metal and becomes part of the whole gate design! Gorgeous gate!

Lesley said...

Neat gate, though the restaurant may be a bit heard to find. took me a moment to figure out where the 'sign' was before reading your post!

Seeing a rusty iron gate in Toronto is a rare sight.

It really is beautiful.

Gorgeous gate, the rust gives it a very contrasting colour against the pristine brickwork!

Halcyon said...

Such a cool entrance! I may have to try the tapas place just because of it. :)

LOVE this! It wouldn't go with my house or property but I can like it from afar.
