Joben Bistro, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
This restaurant in Romania, designed by 6th sense, is a peculiar pub with a steampunk inspiration straight out of Jules’ Verne’s fictional fantasy and sci-fi stories. Joben Bistro also features steampunk motifs. Steampunk is a literary genre connected to science fiction and fantasy that appeared in the 1980s. The works of this genre are often social critiques that play upon elements of Victorian industrialism and technology.
There is a certain edge to this restaurant’s design and industrial crudeness. It is cozy and comfortable at the same time. Whatever one may say about it, it’s not a restaurant that people can ignore. The bar is divided into three rooms. The first one is dedicated to vintage art, the second one has a bar with concrete walls, and the third is full of objects of different types.
The adjustable light and dark-colored walls, the use of brass and copper, and the elegant use of space, all these things come together. So they can make this one of the best places to hang with your friends in Cluj.
Logomo Café, Turku, Finland
Created by the German artist Tobias Rehberger, the interior design of the Logomo Café is sure to remind one of the abstract paintings of Pollock. The crisscrossing lines on the floor and the walls were conceived of in collaboration with Artek.
The geometric furniture contrasted with a dizzying array of harsh stripes brings together certain abstract concepts that are hard to pinpoint. For as long as you stay in this restaurant, interior design will play with your perceptions of it.
Bicycle Bar, Bucharest, Romania
It is by far the most relaxed restaurant on the list, in our humble opinion. Designed by Alina Turdean, the bar's vintage interior design is centered on the theme of, you guessed it, “bicycles.” The bar was opened in late December 2012 in a historical building located in Bucharest’s old city center.
The bar interior designers had recycled parts of run-down old bicycles and assembled them together to provide seamless and comfortable integration into the interior design.
Collaboration between Open Space Design, a young design Bucharest based office, and the bar’s owner Stefan Ciobotaru, the bar reflects the latter’s childhood love for bikes and everything that has to do with them.
We love the idea of this restaurant as it recovers pieces of history so it may live on and make others happy as well.
H.R. Giger Museum Bar, Gruyères, Switzerland
Designed by the Swiss artist H.R. Giger, this bar will remind you of the gothic science of the likes of many Hollywood movies like The Alien, Species, and Poltergeist.
The museum bar evokes the sense of the uncanny, dark, otherworldly mysteries of biomechanical cyborgs and other cosmic creatures of popular fantasy fiction. It is hard to miss this beautiful gem of a restaurant, located in a small town of only about 2000 people.
The Jane Restaurant In A Renovated Church, Antwerp, Belgium
Built by Piet Boon, this restaurant brings together the worlds of fine dining and rock ‘n roll. The restaurant beautifully captures the authentic environment of the chapel by restoring only the highly necessary parts. The rest, as they say, is left to age like wine.
Thanks to the architecture of the church, the music ends up becoming a vital aspect of the restaurant. The whole vibe is very relaxing and soothing without pushing the volume limits. The location of the speakers in the restaurant balance the acoustics ideally to create an atmosphere that is sure to provide an awe-inspiring religious experience.
