A Portuguese nightclub resembles a multi-coloured cavern, complete with chameleonic stalactites that undulate from the ceiling. Located in Porto, the É Pra Poncha bar and club was modeled after natural forms like water dripping from melting ice or eroding limestone hanging from a cave’s ceiling. Mimicking these forms, the entire ceiling of the narrow space is covered with horizontal strata made of lacquered MDF.

‘Simultaneously these strata wave organically to shape various spaces and create voids and different chambers,’ says architect António Fernandez. ‘They develop support services to the bar, like the clean pantry, the dirty pantry, toilets and storage room.’ Meanwhile, chromatic tones are constantly altered through a series of RGB LED lights, which slowly change over the course of an evening. The space can shift from fiery red to icy blue, likely affecting bar-goers. The bar is located on Porto’s famous Rua da Galeria de Paris, a nightlife hotspot.
