The New Buddha Bar, London

While Buddha Bar, sadly closes its location in Beirut, the one in London one reopens early this month. After closing its doors two years ago, Buddha-Bar returns to London, in a totally different setting and ownership. The restaurant occupies two floors and features a swanky interior that meticulously blends Asian and colonial aesthetics.

Renowned artist David Begbie has created the main attraction point - the Buddha sculpture from a single sheet of bronze mesh. Additionally, Begbie created a complementing wall-mounted piece that consists of no less than 207 brass Buddha figures.

Another ornamental feature are the crystal Chinese dragons that hang elaborately from the ground floor ceiling, enticing guests down into its buzzing lair.
