Bars come and go, many operating successfully for years before closing and then re-opening with a new identity and name. The ‘Heya Bars’ operated in the converted ‘Sun Newspaper’ building in Fortitude Valley. One day the neon sign just appeared for sale on Facebook Marketplace.

Following repairs by our own Mr Neon, the Heya Bars sign now has a new life at Australian Modern in Carina. While we’re currently unable to do any entertaining, Susan has been doing a lot of sewing. She is shown modelling her latest Marimekko creations alongside our newly installed neon sign. 

Did you know that we also publish Brisbane Modern?
