The SpaceA former Prohibition Era Speakeasy and historic site of the original Cullman Ironworks, this space is certainly unique, though a bit garage-like. Everything opposite to a hotel. If you're expecting pristine cleanliness, room service and comfort, avoid O.G.'s Place at all cost. If you're adventurous and open-minded; drawn to meaningful conversations and world views; or simply inspired by art, music, and laughter, by all means, "Y'all Come!"
This is basically an old style Juke Joint with an attached bed room and ever evolving decor. With a nice size stage, lights, speakers, mixer, 2 mics, and a unique vibe, this space is a song writer or artist paradise. Sight of many jam sessions.
You have the entire flat to yourself. I live in an attached building next door. You have your own entrance, etc. It's very private, secure, and much bigger than you would expect from the fotos. Guest AccessAnything you need, within---or maybe without--reason. There is a full kitchen, fridge, stove, pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave. Possibly a stray beer or two in the ice box. Paper plates, cups, utensils, salt, pepper, Chrystal sauce, etc. Feel free to use anything. Open up the windows and doors, plug up the Christmas lights, invite your friends.
No smoking inside, turn off the heater, lights, or a/c when not there. The bar area does not have a/c, and the pellet stove must be ignited by me in the winter. The bar is located next to a train crossing, so if you're a light sleeper, be forewarned of possible loud train horns. Pet friendly, with tile and cement slab floors. Quite a collection of classic and eccentric DVDs to choose from. Interaction with GuestsTravelers can have as much or as little interaction with O.G. I'm a football coach, ESL teacher, musician, and world traveler and citizen. Impromptu music and zany behavior have been known to occur. There is always the possibility of some off-the-wall, local character stopping by. You have been warned.... The NeighborhoodExtremely safe and quiet. Think "To Kill a Mockingbird". Cullman is unique in that it is one of the only German settled communities in the Deep South. As a result, there are three Catholic monasteries and a significant remaining presence of German architecture and influence. The listing itself is housed in the only surviving structure of the original Cullman Ironworks: a foundry begun by two of the original German families of the 1870's. Their houses stand side by side to the historic site. Getting AroundEasy walking distance to Busy Bee, Berkley Bob's, Moe's, Brother's, and other live music and food venues in the old downtown part of Cullman Other Things to NoteAn extra sleeping pad may be available for an extra guest or family member. Ask O.G.
