Buddha-Bar restaurant, London

November 4th, 2012 by retail design blog

While some say that nothing beats the magic of the Paris original, we think it has now got a competitive sister establishment on its hand. After closing its doors two years ago, Buddha-Bar returns to London, in a totally different setting and ownership. The restaurant occupies two floors and features a swanky interior that meticulously blends asian and colonial aesthetics.

The focal point of all this dazzling splendour is a maquette of a Buddha sculpture by renowned artist David Begbie, created from a single sheet of bronze mesh. Additionally, Begbie created a complementing wall-mounted piece that consists of no less than 207 brass Buddha figures. Another ornamental feature are the crystal Chinese dragons that hang elaborately from the ground floor ceiling, enticing guests down into its buzzing lair.
