Cobra Lily is a Pan-Asian restaurant and bar located in Shanghai’s popular Xintandi complex. Designed around a mysterious femme fatale, the design is a journey through her day and the places she hangs out.
The original early 1900’s decorative Chinese archways have been kept creating a secret alleyway. Opening into this alleyway you discover the bar and lounge area. A two storey atrium complete with a floating DJ booth, creates a dramatic entrance.
Lounge and dining areas sprouting from this area to form intimate pockets of dining space. Upstairs diner’s nestled in the top of the atrium look down over the lounge and bar area.
The bathrooms are positioned at the end of a long dark corridor with secret agent themes. Raw concrete mixed with sleek finishes create an upmarket urban chic in a relaxed setting.
