The lobby bar is located near the hotel reception, on the ground floor. Our task was to extend the former bar by following day room with the glass ceiling and access to the small courtyard. The bar is working during the day like a lounge - with a small snack for hotel guests and at the night it is a classic bar with the possibility of music production, with a selection of mixed drinks followed by a nice atmosphere.

The original assignment to expand the bar without major interventions in the existing interior changed with the design process and came to a complete replacement of all surfaces, bar facilities, furniture, and lighting.
You can find dark brown wallpapers on the walls, on the floor is placed custom made carpet with an abstract pattern in natural color. The biggest problem was the glass ceiling.
There was a lot of light during the day and there wasn´t a possibility to place the lighting there. We took advantage of the situation to our advantage.

We placed LED stripes to the current steel construction and hanged a soft darker canopy under the ceiling. It is possible to change the color and light intensity, so you can tune the light into the right atmosphere or to the specific season.

The built-in interior elements are designed similar to the rest of the hotel - walnut veneer, black granite, white limestone. These materials are supplemented with matt glass tiling, used for the back of the bar in silver, and for the fireplace in bronze.
We created a muted envelope of the space, in which we inserted mobile furniture of bright golden shades - atypical wide seats of velvet and leatherette upholstery. We chose the gold color based on the original tiling of the bar counter.
Walls are decorated with original pictures made by Czech and Slovak artists. In case of the interest of guests is possible to buy some of them.
