Together with Robert A. Alejandro (of RAW art gallery) and Leah Sanchez (of Resurrection Furniture), he converted an ancestral home into an art & furniture gallery-cum-tea house along 10a Alabama St. in Quezon City.
We checked it out last Father’s Day. Here is what you can expect in this promising art enclave:
1. Hausbesetzer Laboratory by Jetro
First, you choose from a selection of dry tea leaves: lime, avocado, guyabano, mango and banana organic tea.
Then, you add a packed tea booster of Honey Vanilla Chamomile, Sleepytime, Detox A.M., Ginseng Energy or Tension Tamer.
It would have been cool to have Jetro himself serve the tea (but I guess that would defeat the purpose of a sort of self-service ‘lab’). You’d be lucky to catch him at Hausbesetzer since he’s more often found at Van Gogh is Bipolar.
Stay away from these innocent-looking test tube shots. 🙂
The only thing is, the food is not that great (unless you want to eat microwaved pasta or sausages). I do hope Jetro can bring his awesome Van Gogh is Bipolar food to 10a Alabama.
Trivia Tidbit: Hausbesetzer is the German word for squatter/s.

After eating, you can go around and check out the interesting “resurrected” furniture. They are interesting conversation pieces made from old doors, cabinets or windows.
In the men’s restroom, the neckties have been arranged to serve as curtains; while in the garden, formal shoes and high heels have been converted into plant and flower pots.

Gimik tip: After eating in the Tomas Morato area, you can head over to 10a Alabama for a dessert stop (for ice candy or chocolate) and a little bit of artsy shopping. Then, end the night with a hot cup of Hausbesetzer Tea Concoctions. 🙂
