Even at night it looks amazing although a little garish with the McDonalds signage.
It has bands of different coloured bricks providing art deco style decoration on the ground floor.

The windows overlooking the balconies are also curved.
Originally the building was quite fittingly for this website, the United Kingdom Hotel, located at 199 Queens Parade and designed by James Hastie Wardrop and constructed between 1937 and 1938.
It’s even approved by the Hufffington Post who call it one of the coolest McDonalds in their list!
