These days, The Berkeley in London will undoubtedly get a lot of (mostly female) millennials looking to make that one perfect Instagram-worthy picture. This summer, the five-star hotel opened a very colourful bar with an extremely unique interior.
'Refined, intimate and with a touch of old world glamour.' This is how the London Bryan O'Sullivan Studio describes The Berkeley Bar & Terrrace that opened its doors this summer. However, the brand-new bar is not the only one in the luxurious hotel and will therefore have to compete with The Blue Bar, designed by the late David Collins. The new bar is just as colourful but focuses more on earth tones and pink hues.
"Classic and contemporary elements in a timeless whole"
Especially the aptly named 'Snug' looks very attractive for millennials obsessed with the colour pink. The mural you see was made by New York artist TM Davy and refers to similar snuggly corners in old bars where women could meet up with an alcoholic drink without being judged for it. The undulating sofa is very inviting and if you don't feel like giving up your seat, you can simply use the call-for-service button signaling a waiter to come up to take your order.
The rest of the bar is also stylishly furnished, based on the rich history of the building. Bryan O'Sullivan and his team were able to bring together classic and contemporary elements in a timeless whole. Other striking elements are the halfmoon-shaped marble bar and the central fireplace. The Berkeley Bar & Terrace offers everything you need to unwind completely and enjoy a evening off. Oh, and did we mention that the menu includes some very rare wines and vintage champagnes? Cheers!
