Dedicated exclusively to hospitality design, The UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards is a unique concept. The Awards receive entries from the world’s top architects, designers and hospitality operators in order to compile a shortlist of the year’s best hospitality design projects. Entries come from a broad range of sectors, including hotels, transport, business, industry, fine dining, education, sports and leisure, healthcare, government, aviation, cruise and retail.
As a totally independent process, the judging panel is made up of a host of world renowned and well respected figures, drawn from various design and lifestyle industries. It is the judge’s role to recognise and reward entrants for design excellence, using their skills from within the industry to assess and judge each of the categories.
UK specific categories include Best Standalone Restaurant, Best Standalone Bar or Club, Pub, Best Multiple Restaurant and Best Fine Dining. There are also international categories such as Best Lighting, Best Pop-Up and Best Identity.
The winners of the various categories including the Best Designed Restaurant and the Best Designed Bar were announced at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London on the 6th September 2012. Featured within our coverage of the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards 2012 are The Coach House, Pizza Express Plymouth, Dirty Martini, Les Grandes Tables de L’ile Seguin and The Drift.
