The bar complex focal point is a double height space that is adorned with full height banners from the Communist Era and a grand ceramic world map set against rough sandstone walls.
From here, a connecting corridor was designed to lead to the restaurant area which takes its inspiration from Moscow underground stations. Ornate textured tiles echo a sense of timelessness along with brass picture lighting.
The dining room is upholstered in red-velvet leather, mixed with an assortment of antique leather, circa-1930s, Russian chairs. A decadent candelabra sits on the end of the bar and signals the users arrival within this traditional ‘Russian Tearoom’. From here a central staircase connects to the upper levels. Taking its inspiration from Russian Socialist propaganda and the work of El Lissitzky in particular, this enclosure reflects a journey through this period of Russian History.
