You know what one of the worst things about doing laundry is? That you can't get stupid drunk while waiting for your delicates to dry. I mean, theoretically you can, but you run a very high risk of drunkenly joining some underground laundry secret society. Those are a total pain in the ass to get out of, trust me.
At first, it looks like a regular bar/cafe hybrid with lots of stools and bartenders ready with a Wi-Fi password, but beyond that bar and through the alley is...their laundry service. Right now, you can approach this one of two ways: drop off your laundry and pick it up the next day, or pay a reasonable price and get in on the first-come-first-serve expedited washing. Either way, you can eat their grilled cheese and drink their brews after you drop off your foldables.
The only possible downside to this is now you have a bartender who is privy to your deepest, darkest laundry secrets. I don't want Joe the hot bartender who I daydream about swooping me away to Acapulco knowing how many pairs of "I Heart Loki" underwear I have.
Of course the biggest upside of this bar is you can EAT ALL THE CHEEZ:
[T]hey've got a ton of excellent sandos to choose from, including The Deluxe, which is bursting with sharp cheddar, Swiss, tomato, prosciutto, and crushed chips
For those interested, The Wash House is located at 44 East 1st St in New York. Have fun.
