As the title suggests this post will be all about places to have a bite and a pint.
Bar design is such an interesting area to look at as it generates feelings of relaxation, contemplation and nostalgia. We take in a lot more of the Interior detail within pubs and restaurants as we are sitting in one place for a long period of time.
Lighting is key to generating interest and grabbing a punter in to come to your pub. More chic cocktail bars adopt the technique of LED colored lighting and glossy surfaces. This reflects light back into the space and makes the interior look very futuristic and inviting.
However I prefer the more gastro colonial style pub. Wooden panels and a general industrial feel. A modern take on the old 'spit and sawdust' locals of yesteryear. I would say I fancy a tipple of real ale and like to feel comfortable within my drinking environment.
In terms of food I'm all up for Tapas within a bar environment. A bit of calamaris, patatas bravas and chorizo is all I need for a nibble. However a blend of real ale and tapas is hard to come across in the UK pub scene (never mind the Spanish) so a gap in the market there then.
Anyway. Have a look at this Pinterest board to see if there is any designs that get your taste buds tingling and your mouth salivating. (click on image below).
