Mamasan Bar, Restaurant & Club


Curious Design & Architecture projected the first asian fusion tapas bar in Glasgow, Scotland, with wall murals by New York graphic designers Omnivore.

This venue comprises a 6 bed boutique Hotel, Bar and Restaurant, which becomes a Club later in the evening. The venue is ideally suited to attract a wide audienceranging from students, the business community and city centre shoppers.

The Hotel offers a personal but friendly service to visitors. Each room has its own distinct feel owing to the physical characteristics of the building.

The brief for the Bar was to complement the offering of East Asiantapas, so we drew on references from Japan, China and Thailand. Thisis seen through the use of highly glossed black lacquered tables,black ash chairs and Bar front which carries a slashed motifreminiscent of traditional bamboo screens. Chinese lanterns add adecorative touch but there have been enveloped in black perspexcubes, which gives them added value. We directed a photo shoot of anaked Geisha to add a dramatic and sensual talking point within thevenue.

This Victorian Terrace enjoys a presence off the street with twoentrances, one serves the Hotel, and the second leads you down to thebasement where Mamasan is situated. The benefit is that the Bar andHotel, although linked, can operate independently which gives theclient some flexibility with his operation.
