Enigma CafĂ©, the first kinetic steampunk pub is literally making history with its kinetic sculptures and sparked quite a share craze online after first appearing on the Facebook page. Designed by Romanian based designers Alexandru Tohotan and Zoltan Zelenyak, this place is full of wonders – dozens of finely designed steampunk details, rotating wheels, metallic flowers opening up on the ceiling, a live moving bird, a giant moving clock and even a robot.
