This small, tiny alley might not be on many tourist guides, but it should surely be on every artistic mind’s bucket list.

When it first opened 110 years ago, this neo-classic building was one of the city’s most luxurious mall named Falck & Beidek Store.

Today, it has become one of the city’s best go-tos for antiques and collections, and rental space for weddings and events.
The lifestyle annex to O.P. Place is dotted with galleries, art shops and cafes.
