The 9 Bars That Every Architect Needs To Visit

The 9 Bars That Every Architect Needs To Visit

When you think of your favorite spot to grab a beer, what architectural features come to mind? Is it the swanky furniture, themed artwork, or the heavily designed cocktail menu? Today, the aesthetics of bars are now as much a draw as the drinks themselves. From movie set inspired spaces to rooftops that offer spectacular city views, we’ve compiled a list of nine bars and beer gardens that every architect needs to cross off their list.

The Magazine is part of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery Extension in London. The space features an undulating fabric roof which meets the ground at three points. Tables in the restaurant portion are organized around sculptural columns, and the surrounding gardens can be seen through the full height glass windows.

Takitori Barby / Kengo Kuma / Kichijoji, Japan

Kuma’s 325 square-foot Yakitori Barby project uses almost exclusively recycled materials (including ethernet cables) to give the restaurant a distinctively textured appearance. Other melted acrylic products are used to furnish the bar, leaving the space to blend in with the stools and tables. The exterior of the bar retains its black-market stall feel, which was popular during the post-war period.


Bar Luce / Wes Anderson / Milan, Italy

Located in the Fondazione Prada, Bar Luce looks like it was plucked right off of a Wes Anderson film set. Which, in a sense, it was. The interior features colored formica tables, whimsical wallpaper, speckled floors, and even a Steve Zissou inspired pinball machine. Visitors have said that the space “gives a Grand Budapest Hotel feel,” and is “extremely Instagrammable.”
