Design Practice Location:
The NoMad Bar is designed as a seamless extension of the hotel, yet operates as its own distinct destination. The design team created visual references to the luxurious French aesthetic of the hotel, while also creating a welcoming English pub atmosphere at the bar. On the ground floor, the focal point is a 20-foot bar that features a large arch backed by an antique mirror and flanked by custom millwork. A serpentine drink rail, illuminated with signature light sconces, faces expansive windows. The copper and wood bar counter and mahogany-panelled ceiling and walls create a warm, inviting atmosphere. The olive green leather upholstery on the banquettes contrasts the otherwise dark palette. On the mezzanine level, Persian rugs cover the herringbone wood flooring, adding warmth and texture to the room. Tables are set up overlooking the bar, providing guests with an intimate setting where they can see and be seen.
