A while back, there was some buzz about Dirty Laundry, the laundromat/bar that was supposed to come alive in Cannonborough. A full fifteen months after the initial announcement in The Post and Courier, the owners of the combo shop are saying construction will start soon.
According to an email, "The Dirty Laundry Charleston team includes noted architect David Thompson and award-winning designer Gil Shuler. Jeremiah Schenzel (of The Macintosh) has been engaged to develop a healthy, approachable menu of 'refined convenience' - sourcing local foods whenever possible while utilizing creative flavor combinations and nutritional principles."
Persimmon Café, the coffee shop and lunch spot inside College Laundry, opened earlier this winter and is exactly a mile away from Dirty Laundry's location.
