When Scottish cook Richard Hudson split with his wife, his midlife crisis saw him travel 22,000km from the Highlands to 17 African countries in an old 1971 Land Rover he had nicknamed “Katy,” after a jeep in World War II movie “Ice cold in Alex.” On his return home, he stopped in Dresden. He fell in love with the city, deciding to stay and eventually opening this grungy motor-themed bar inside a former Neustadt tire garage, decorated with old car doors and exhausts.
