Torontoist photographer John Beebe is exploring the city’s most interesting laundromats, one by one by one. Tune back in every other week for another clean, dry, freshly-pressed edition.
Nothing like a little pop art to make doing laundry less of a chore. Torontoist found graphic entertainment at the Laundry Lounge (527 Yonge Street) as we set out to document the character and characters of our city’s laundromats. If you want to drop your dirty clothes off at Laundry Lounge, Andre, the owner and manager (pictured above), will clean them for you—or, if you want to do your own and enjoy the art, he’ll regale you with insights on laundry, politics, or the city scene.
Art with your laundry.
A passion for suds… or art, at least.
This pair discovered Laundry Lounge while visiting from San Diego, California.
Laundry Lounge is customer-driven; all of its art was created by its customers.
