What’s the least glamorous part of getting ready? Laundry. Wading through a pile of dirty clothes in shorts and a college sweater is a ritual that comes around once a week. Before you toss your jeans in the machine, throw in some detergent and turn up the dial to get back to the important issues (like breakfast), we’ve found the coolest spots to take your cleaning routine to the next level.

Dries Henau thought it would be cool to get your whites cleaned and hair cut at the same time, and so he founded Wasbar. With a funky décor, the Antwerp space lets strangers with their laundry enjoy everything from live music to a round of beer all before the final rinse.
