...Because It Looks So Good!
If you hear the name The Black Rabbit, it won’t make any sense. Well, that’s the point. You see a board like that on a prime location like 100 Feet Road in Bengaluru and it is bound to raise your curiosity. That’s how this all new bar and restaurant creates a strong recall value. The space behind that façade too falls no short of awe.
Apart of Escape Hospitality, The Black Rabbit with its inviting location draws customers to blow off some steam. The design accommodates the dual purposes –- for people to chill out with some beer or party on the weekend. Earlier the place housed a restaurant. People who’ve visited that restaurant would be taken aback at the total transformation of the place. The Black Rabbit is a 3,000 sq. ft space with different zones -- exterior, interior, double height and mezzanine -- to suit the varying preferences of discerning guests. The façade of the restaurant doesn’t reveal anything of the inside. Just like the name, the façade with its blank white wall raises curiosity. You walk in, and it is a treat to your eyes. A muted colour palette greets you with natural greens bringing life into the space. With naturally treated wood tables, aged brick flooring, cast iron table base and the greenery, the space gives the vibe of a seasoned space rather than a new one. The wood tables are recycled oak that has been weathered for over 50 years. The design draws inspiration from the European barn look. The chairs give a very organic feel, as experienced in a European café or farm house. With natural light entering through the roof, the exterior warms up towards the customer.
