Best Vintage Lunchbox Collection


Quoth a sloshed compatriot one recent evening, “I wonder how many of them still smell like bologna.” Tough to say, but ACE BAR‘s kaleidoscopic rows of classic metal lunchboxes certainly reek of nostalgia—everybody from Nancy Drew to Bee Gee Barry Gibb has a place here, nestled among totems of Saturday morning’s heyday. Highlights include Lidsville, Strawberry Shortcake, and Land of the Lost tins, but they’re all acutely charming, lending a whiff of innocence to a pub where Throbbing Gristle’s “Hamburger Lady” is a jukebox option.
