I have no reason to dislike the Metropole hotel, but when I see its new window sign promoting a new menu and new chef I can only shake my head. Change may be good, but they cannot change some of the fundamental things that makes their cafe a dead zone, such as the location. The Brunswick St party zone ends at Gertrude St. They also haven’t changed the interior, which is uninviting with uninspiring decor. Sadly for them, it may be a location that simply does not work.
