There are no walls at Simmzy’s. No really, there aren’t any outside walls. Every seat along the border of this street-corner bar-cum-restaurant is essentially on the sidewalk. There used to be two presumably non-load-bearing facades enclosing the space that was once the Shore House Cafe, but that might as well be a million years ago. This, you think to yourself, is what all present and future of pubs should look like, where there are no visible boundaries between your well-drunk glass of ale and the street. Because of it, the place seems to have a magnetic pull. Whether you’re driving by or walking by, you see that everyone’s here, curvy vessels of beer in hand, pizza pies between them—so why aren’t you?
