In the heart of Beijing's exclusive Lido neighbourhood, a space emerges that is not just a testament to luxury but also to the power of interior design and architectural solutions. Kun Whiskey & Cigar Bar, spanning a generous 340sm, stands as a beacon of bar design, a space that resonates with the ethos of exclusivity, elegance, and sophistication.
The challenge presented was multifaceted. Situated on the upper level of a concrete edifice, the bar beckoned transformation. The ground level, designated for an Italian restaurant, set the tone for the luxury that would unfold above. The vision was clear: a private members club that would cater to the finest connoisseurs and celebrities of Beijing, a space that would redefine the very essence of luxury and exclusivity.
The architectural narrative of Kun Whiskey & Cigar Bar is one of intention, detail, and a deep understanding of bar design. Every design choice, every material selection, and every architectural solution was rooted in a commitment to creating a space that would offer varying levels of privacy for its esteemed members. The main room, the heart of the bar, is a masterclass in design. Dramatically encircled by glass display cases, it showcases members' private stock, a visual testament to their refined tastes. At its centre, a Japanese-style bar anchors the space, offering patrons an immersive experience.
Yet, the brilliance of Kun Whiskey & Cigar Bar lies not just in its interior design but also in its architectural solutions. Adjacent semi-private spaces, with their exclusive views of Lido Park, offer a visual respite, a connection to nature in the heart of the city. And for those seeking complete privacy, two VIP rooms, accessible only by the owner, stand as sanctuaries of luxury and exclusivity.
Located in a building redesigned by KOS, Kun Whiskey & Cigar Bar is more than a whiskey bar; it's a celebration of bar design, a space that has been recognized and featured in esteemed publications, from World Interior News in London to the coveted Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.
In essence, Kun Whiskey & Cigar Bar is a symphony of interior design and architectural solutions, a space that honours its commitment to luxury and exclusivity while offering an experience that is second to none.
