This place makes walking the fine line between nostalgia and modernity look effortless. Shortlisted for this year’s Restaurant and Bar Design Awards, the Marylebone location is the perfect mix of Spanish traditional design with a spaciousness that makes it seem both established and contemporary. Eclectic collections of ceramics and books line the walls of the smaller rooms, while sunlight from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the main bar area reflects off patterned tiles. Barcelona-based Lázaro Rosa-Violán’s other projects can be seen here, many of which are becoming my favourite spaces with their filmic quality and retro detailing.
