Unique Restaurants that will brighten up your summer!
Clerkenwell Grind Restaurant & Bar in London, UK
Converted from a warehouse, this bar has outshined its rivals in a fashionable manner. Clerkenwell’s new spot incorporates materials like marble, velvet, and wood which complement each other quite beautifully. Contrasting colours add uniqueness and mystery to this 19th century warehouse. Biasol, an Australian design company, has created a lot of textures through the use of worn timber floors and glamorous velvet upholstery on the seating areas (including chairs, bar stools, and sofas). The Royal Blue walls are fabricated from reclaimed wood, painted to match the chosen upholstery. Additional accents of light and dark marble, brass lighting fixtures,and black steel tie in this modern interior together in an oddly satisfying fashion.
Kanarie Club Restaurant & Bar in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam’s new playground for adults has been brought to life by the Dutch interior design firm – Modijefsky. The fun and the playful mood is present throughout the layout of the remodeled tram-depot building. The venue’s high ceilings and large footprint made it possible to create several spaces that divide the club’s layout into distinct sections. The areas include the main bar, kitchen, workspaces, duce tables, and booths, as well as a second floor with the mini bar and “pool area”. This industrial-style venue kept the integrity of the building’s past life with the integration of track rails and custom made furniture mounted on wheels. Rails have been playfully remodeled to form soaring arches, or designed to jut through the installations, as noted on the central bar. The linear elements are taken from present day train tracks display movement, energy, and ridership; all the values that perfectly sum-up the Kanarie Club’s spirit. Whether it is business or pleasure, the Kanarie club is inclusively designed for everyone, with the intention to unwind and have a good time.
One of the areas we enjoyed the most is the upstairs lounge with the swimming pool. This pool was built without any intention to fill but to have as a playful location to mingle. The heavy use of blue, seen in the wall paint, on the cushions and matching blue tiles works perfectly in conjunction with the wavy mirror; all these elements combining to mimic the resemblance of water. Further, the designers used yellow round cushions to mimic life preservers and red pool railing to convey the illusion of the perfect pool party.
Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar in Sydney, Australia
This industrial style building with existing brick walls and timber ceiling has inspired the designer, Matt Woods, in his remodeling of Sydney’s new tea café and shop. To add more light and a softer look to the harsh industrial feel, Woods has splashed the walls with white pigment and added many white lighting fixtures. The integration of large windows during the remodeling has invited in more daylight; coupled with the choice of lighter wood furniture, the whole space grew in size, and became more inviting. Accents of greenery, marble, tile-clad counters and citrus coloured packaging, bring in more interesting texture variations, which improve the aesthetics of the space. This space is overall a very interesting yet clean design, which we regard as a soothing sight to satiate your senses.
Albabel Restaurant in Valencia, Spain
The small town of Picana, just 8 km away from the vibrant city of Valencia, has welcomed a new restaurant that was inspired by the Andalusian design. A blend of Mediterranean and international ingredients makes Albabel’s interior perfect to enjoy any meal on the menu. The space incorporates true-to-region elements of earth brick, colourful tiles, plants, and olive wood furniture. Masquespacio designers, known for their unique and bright work, have incorporated graphical design through the terracotta earthy colours, teal blue, and accents of red. Through the use of colour and geometric decorative elements this restaurant embraces a vibrant and lively design that acknowledges its full appreciation of the owner’s Andalusian roots.
