The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards now in its tenth year is a globally recognised competition dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces. This covers every imaginable hospitality space, from ships to airports, museums to burger vans, and from revered Michelin-starred establishments to the fleeting dynamism of pop-ups.
Judged by a panel of some of the most influential personalities in design, hospitality and lifestyle globally, this annual edition of the Awards attracted over 900 entries from the UK and 70 other countries.
Sean Connolly a restaurant in Dubai, UAE designed by Alexander & Co and Rosina, a bar in Las Vegas, USA designed by Simeone Deary Design Group (& Gensler) were the Overall winners. Another 36 category winners (including Best UK Winners) were revealed at the winner’s ceremony, which took place at London’s King’s Cross earlier this month. The ceremony was attended by over 600 of the UK and world’s best designers and their clients responsible for the design of the most innovative food and beverage spaces.
We were thrilled to sponsor the Surface Interiors award with our Sales & Design Director Richard France presenting the award to Chuan’s Kitchen (Foshan, China) by Guangdong Infinity Mind Architecture Design Co.
The theme for this year’s Awards ceremony was ‘The Great Build’. Five previous Award-winning designers (B3 Designers, Biasol, Finch Interiors, Keane & Mizzi Studio) teamed up with their preferred fit-out partners and created a huge 3D Tapestry with a theme of ‘Celebration’ which was revealed during the evening.
Congratulations to all of the shortlisted projects and we look forward to next year's event!
