1. Duddell’s London by Michaelis Boyd A green tiled bar stands out in this space with gold pendant lights from above.

The restaurant and bar, set in an 18th-century church, combines architectural grandeur with geometric playfulness inspired by Hong Kong tea houses from the 1960s.

2.  Wild Ginger by SkB Architects 

A wooden bar with green velvet bar stools features a canopy ceiling with metallic gold.

The bar canopy’s metallic finish from Scuffmaster glitters under Kreon spotlights; the Seattle bar’s custom car chairs are by Asti.

3. Gastro Pelayo Trinquet by Mercader de Indias This gastropub features a sleek modern bar lined with stools balanced by greenery lined shelves.

The Valencia restaurant’s bar area, with stools upholstered with a fabric inspired by the Albufera natural park’s plants and herons, is separated from the kitchen by an iron bar.

4. Takoi by Undecorated Pink and purple hues bath this bar in moody light

The Detroit eatery and bar imitates the lights of Bangkok—and it offers a taste of Thailand, too.

5. The Beekman Hotel by GKV Architects and Martin Brudnizki A bar and lounge area with colorful seating and layers of patterned multi-colored rugs.

The lounge of this New York hotel features contemporary portraits of authors by artist Cathy Cone, among them Edgar Allan Poe, who is framed by a 19th-century arch.

6. Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá by Rottet Studio A green wall lines the wall behind this inviting bar at the Four Seasons Bogota

The courtyard bar features Colombian tile flooring and plenty of greenery.

7. Asbury Lanes by Anda Andrei Design and Bonetti/Kozerski Red and white and blue is the theme in this bar with an American flag ceiling installation and red and blue bar stools.

Tolix stools, a Sixinch bench, and Amlgmatd tables liven up the bar area of this 1960s-era New Jersey bowling alley.

8. Annabel’s Jungle Bar by Martin Brudnizki Annabel's Jungle Bar reflects its namesake with wall art featuring overgrown plants and chairs with animal prints.

Verre églomisé panels are complemented by a tortoiseshell wall covering in this immersive lounge.

9. Pink Mamma by Martin Brudnizki  Greenery hangs from above at this bar that seems fit for a garden party with peach bar stools and blue chairs

Timber accents and a white marble bar forge a relaxed mood at the second-floor antipasti bar in Paris.

10. Born & Raised by Basile Studio The patio at this rooftop bar features a black and white floor with pink armchairs surrounding the tables.

Faux flowers wind around the San Diego rooftop bar’s powder-coated steel trellis.

11. East Trading Co. by  Electric Coffin  Colorful wall art adds a pop of interest in this lounge with a wooden bar and wooden stools

The maple bar is lined with custom seating Seattle owner I-Miun Liu created with car parts.

12. Jean-Georges by Neri & Hu Design and Research Office A glass partition separates the bar of this restaurant from other areas, creating a veil of mystery.

Brass-framed gradient glass partitions delineate the riverfront bar in Shanghai.

13. Pink Moon Saloon by Sans-Arc Studio Like a small house with a pitched roof between two taller buildings, this bar creates a cozy statement.

The 60-degree roof pitch brings a sense of spaciousness to the Adelaide, Australia gastropub, which is only 12 feet wide and sandwiched between two much taller office buildings.

14. Founding Farmers Restaurant by GrizForm With seating on all sides, this bar beneath a pitched roof invites diners to connect.

Above the bar, pendant fixtures by Raimond Puts hang below a canopy built like the roof of a barn in stained Douglas fir.
