What would your dream bar lounge luxury decor look like? Do you enjoy the simplicity or perhaps you prefer an eclectic mix of colour, texture, and pattern? Whatever your preference is, the design and style of a lounge room is an important core to any hospitality project. By incorporating key elements and decor styles, you can create an iconic lounge bar seating, as the following examples.

The Gallery at Sketch London

Created in collaboration between stalwart French chef Pierre Gagnaire and restaurateur Mourad Mazouz. Since it opened in 2002, has been one of the worldwide most buzzed lounge bar seating.  Designed to combine fine dining with music and art, this is a Mayfair institution that’s unlike any other London restaurant. Here, the two Michelin starred cuisine of Gagnaire takes center stage in a series of eclectic dining rooms, alongside fine wines and a series of inventive cocktails.

Quirky is perhaps the first word that comes to mind when describing the décor here, from the Lecture Room & Library, which was imagined by interior designer Gabhan O’Keeffe, to the modern European Gastro-Brasserie, The Gallery; a space that’s instantly recognizable for its distinct pink décor and witty artwork, the walls here have been decorated with 239 of the celebrated artist David Shrigley’s drawings.

The soft pink interior, which was designed by India Mahdavi, incorporates complementary copper accents and playful design features from pink velvet upholstered chairs to ceramic tableware designed by Shrigley. This playful decadence and contemporary design sit harmoniously alongside the grandeur of the dining room’s herringbone marble flooring and domed ceiling.

Overall, the menu focuses on comfort-driven New England fare, with dishes such as the famous Bristol Burger (topped with homemade pickles and served with truffle fries) and the lobster cobb salad, the go-to choice for the ladies who lunch here.
