"Following the highly successful Bar and Club Design (2002), New Bar and Club Design examines current international trends, showcasing 47 bars and clubs completed since 2001." "The 1990s restaurant boom led to an increase in both the volume and diversity of restaurants, and this in turn heralded an increasingly sophisticated bar market. There has been a resurgence of cocktail culture and an explosion of the 'style bar' - professionally designed venues that serve high-quality drinks. As this book demonstrates, such bars continue to open in cities from New York to Moscow, Beirut to Kuala Lumpur. There is also a trend in lower-budget designer bars that are as visually interesting as the big budget productions, such as Andy Wahloo in Paris and Opal in London." "Likewise, club culture continues to thrive. Many nightclubs are cosier than the 'superclubs' so popular during the late 1980s and '90s, and recent years have seen the emergence of the 'boutique club' - small, exclusive nightclubs where the focus has returned to the music, the sound system and the dancing. Other alternatives include late-night lounge bars with DJs that cater to the 'grown-up clubber', offering comfort and luxury rather than an empty shell in which to dance. Some 'superclubs' are still being built and these offer the very best in technology and audiovisual entertainment, usually laid out over several different areas. This book explores the design Zeitgeist of bar and club culture worldwide." "Following a brief introduction tracing the latest international trends, four themed chapters on bars, restaurant bars, hotel bars and clubs showcase the most interesting and unusual venues from around the world. New Bar and Club Design is a must for anyone with an interest in interior design, bar or club culture."--BOOK JACKET.
