Finalists for restaurant & bar design award

World’s top architects, designers and hospitality operators throw their names in the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards’ hat for a chance to gain international recognition.

Totally independent, the UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards is the world’s only concept of its kind dedicated exclusively to hospitality design and most outstanding restaurant and bar interiors in the world. Entries come from all types of environment including hotels, transport, business, industry, fine dining, education, sports and leisure, healthcare, government, aviation, cruise and retail.

The judges are a highly influential panel of top design, lifestyle & hospitality personalities, whose role is to recognise and reward entrants for design excellence. The winners of the various categories including the best designed restaurant and the best designed bar, will be announced at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London on the 6th September 2012.

This year, the shortlist of nominees includes the highest bar in the world — Ozone, in Hong Kong; Le Bernardin in New York; and Jamie Oliver’s Jamie’s Italian eatery in Cheltenham, UK, writes AFP.
