New Bar + Club Design: Book Review

June 24, 2008 at 1:41 pm 1 comment

In many countries and cultures, bars and clubs are a social staple. Harkening back to the days of the “waterhole”, the purpose has pretty much stayed the course: to socialize and, more importantly, quench thirst.

In modern times, however, a third function has arisen – to become a breeding ground for panache designers’ wild ideas.  While many bare-bone bars exist to help one simply forget about the day, in the large high-culture cities around the world high-technology, cutting edge design, and trendy flair come together to create unique social experiences.

For the past several years, Abbeyville Press has been there to help document this strong sub-genre of design and architecture;  New Bar + Club Design is their latest installment.

New Bar + Club Design is a photographic journey through the worlds most popular spots of the “cocktail culture”. Though chock full of beautiful full-spread photos (for us visually oriented), there is also well-written textual descriptions and architectural plans (for when you need more “in-depth” information).  A guide for design and inspiration, or a traveling itinerary for night-lifers and bar-lovers around the world, New Bar + Club Design is a fun book to have in any library.

You can buy here. (Abbeville Press)
