Morning folks, and welcome to the week! Hope all had a fab weekend.
So for today’s masterpiece I thought I’d take a look at Mamoz Bar and Restaurant in Causeway Bay, here in Honkers. It was designed by Gettys, a hospitality design firm with a big presence here in Asia and the States. The whole space is fantastic but for me the highlight is its centrepiece: an 8 metre long teak bartop from Indonesia. Let’s take a little peek!
You see the bar??!
Ok, let’s get a bit closer…
Err, and a bit more…
It’s just absolutely beautiful, oh gawd I love Bali!
They also make a feature of the connecting staircase, with a transparent glass floor so you literally feel as if you’re standing on top of the city:
And they have some pretty cool wall decor to boot:
Pretty incredible, no? You must check it out if you’re ever in Hong Kong.
And here are a few more images from Gettys’ portfolio – they seem to nudge towards a slightly more trad style than I ususally go for but there are a few corkers.
Loving this contemporary lobby, with its pops of tangerine:
And these wood carvings are pretty much perfection!
A couple from the Hotel Felix in Chicago – I seriously am becoming alarmingly obsessed with sleek modern fireplaces…
This reception desk is really interesting – can’t work out what that finish is on the front though, any ideas?!
And lastly a colourful quirky hotel bar – not a bad spot for a drinky or two:
