Bar Style charts the glamorous design renaissance of hotel bars and members′ clubs and the way their cutting–edge interiors have helped forge a new social culture. Until recently dominated by sexless corporate design and traditional stuffiness, hotel and members’ bars have responded to a backlash against homogeneity and are now the playground for innovative designers, sophisticated celebrities, and ultra–cool urbanites.

The revolution in ′exclusive′ bars began with the birth of the Groucho and Ian Schrager′s boutique hotels. There is now a stunning range of intimate, ground–breaking bars –– even within traditional hotels –– that offer the fashion–savvy, post–club generation somewhere to see and be seen. The designs of Starck, Collins, Jiricna, Conran and Chipperfield rise above the zeitgeist, providing interiors of great beauty, style, and wit.

Join author Howard Watson in an examination of bars from the UK, USA, Australia, Europe, and Asia and of the designs of Starck, Collins, Jiricna, Conran, and Chipperfield. Each bar study is accompanied by high quality images and a full description, summing up the design, ambience, and clientele. Bar Style is a great source of information and inspiration for your own projects. Order your copy today.

From the Back Cover:

Bar Style charts the glamorous design renaissance of hotel bars and members′ clubs and the way their cutting–edge interiors have helped forge a new social culture that is a far cry from traditional bars and pubs. Until recently dominated by sexless corporate design and traditional stuffiness, it is hotel and members’ bars that have responded to a backlash against the homogeneity of the high street with interiors of great beauty, style and wit. As this book reveals, hotel bars and members′ clubs are now the playground for innovative designers, sophisticated celebrities and ultra–cool urbanites.

The revolution in ′exclusive′ bars began with the birth of the Groucho and Ian Schrager′s boutique hotels. There is now a stunning range of intimate, ground–breaking bars – even within traditional hotels – that offer the fashion–savvy, post–club generation somewhere to rest its Manolo Blahniks. There is nowhere better to see and be seen, and the media has a frenzied love of these cool, fashionable bars. However, the designs of Starck, Collins, Jiricna, Conran and Chipperfield rise above the zeitgeist: the interiors instil a quality of aesthetic experience that will endure far longer than the celebrity of some of the customers.
