Our inspiration came from wanting to create a stylish and cool liquid effect – after all, it is a bar and it was important for me to make it a focal point.
An aqua-blue distressed finish on the claddings create a textured backdrop that sets the tone for the other elements to contrast. Details in brass, oxidized metals and vibrant-blue glass worked stylishly on the bottle display.
We created an inviting space that is flexible, and that can be enjoyed in several ways, that feels warm yet ample and that better frames in the old town views.
We raised the ceiling, supporting it by flat trusses, finely finished in brass tones. We made larger windows and boxed them in to create a high visual limit line that would connect to the cladded ceiling on the bar.
The cozy and warm elements are found in the large chandeliers that hang down, the elegant chesterfield upholstery and the textured oak wood table tops.
We created a stand-up bar under the window that opens up to the esplanade where guests can enjoy a drink or tapas indoor and alfresco simultaneously.
And the distressed lime yellow door became the eye catcher that invites you in.
The nice thing about this bar is that you can experience it in different ways.
