Feels like Europe in this Kitchen and Bar Restaurant in Mumbai | Umesh Desai & Associates

European Elements Inspire The Design of This Kitchen and Bar Restaurant in Mumbai | Umesh Desai & Associates

Tucked in the western suburbs of Mumbai and spanning 4,000 sq ft, 'Blabber Kitchen and Bar' reflects European elements and details. Spread over two floors, each floor offers a different atmosphere, a quaint café feel on the ground along with a comprehensive bar on the first floor, but they both share a common mood board and stylistic elements. Some brick walls were left partially uncovered to highlight the aesthetic value of vintage buildings which brings back a little nostalgia.

Inspired by dining establishments of Western Europe, Blabber is an exercise in extreme attention to detail, from the lilac glass panel windows and the entrance to the intricate first-floor bar and arch ceiling with raised floor seating on the ground floor, all of which allow guests to feel fully immersed in the space. Nishant Desai - Creative Director at UDA INDIA (Umesh Desai & Associates) with Divya Cheddha designed the mesmerizing aesthetics of this restro bar. How this chic resto-bar is shaped up, sharing Nishant with SURFACES REPORTER (SR):
