Otto e mezzo bistro bar by Ark4lab, Thessaloniki – Greece

January 9th, 2017 by retail design blog

Otto e mezzo is an urban mediterranean bistro bar located in front of the beach of Thessaloniki. Its dream is to combine clever cocktails, high-quality coffee along with mediterranean flavors coming from Italian and greek traditional food. Its name is borrowed from the famous Felini’s Otto E Mezzo film. Materials are ‘ honest ‘ and pure and the sea view stunning. Old made walls, mosaic, leather, aged wood and metal is combined with the sound of jazz-funk music.

Industrial, urban, and clearly informed by contemporary western trends, Ark4LOA’s Otto e Mezzo remains wholeheartedly Greek, its laid-back Mediterranean mood an underlying aesthetic. Cinematic references continue, with a mural ode to Tony Soprano — the James Gandolfini-played protagonist of iconic HBO series The Sopranos — set above an oblique quote from British philosopher Paul Grice: In the sense in which I am using the word say, I intend what someone has said to be closely related to the conventional meaning of the words.
