Beautiful Winery in Napa

Seems to good to be true — you stop for gas, and find an oasis of pinot instead.
Napa has a new hot-spot, is Tank Garage Winery— an old vintage service station
transformed into a super cool wine country destination. It’s the perfect casual
road stop to try some new wine, take in the scenery or snap a few good photos.
Not a huge fan of wine in general, I’m more a of craft cocktail gal, but I love
the name, branding and use of old materials.

Beautiful Restaurant Interiors

Another beautiful restaurant by Space Copenhagen, this time transforming a former industrial oil warehouse in the old Christianshavn quarter for Noma’s Rene Redzepi’s new restaurant, 108. Featuring tall sash windows and high ceilings, the striking interior combines raw concrete, exposed brick walls, dark burnished metals and weathered timber. All of the work done by Space Copenhagen is beautifully designed and executed.

Beautiful Restaurant Design

It’s becoming one of the functional rules of the itinerant restaurant-goer’s life that, on arriving in a new town, one should immediately check out the old meat market. Unfortunately I’m not currently planning a trip to Copenhagen but if I was, I would definitely be dining in this restaurant, Kul.

The Copenhagen market is called Kødbyen (it translates, pleasingly, as Meatsville) and is a small architectural jewel. Though it’s become a hip “quarter” for bars, restaurants and an excellent craft beer scene, the governing authority has ensured that nothing can be insensitively modernized and that some of the traditional trades still take place. Tonight, a grazing herd of hipsters will be slinging hogs on to hooks. If you, too, are a fan of seared meat, niche ales and interwar Danish modernism, Meatsville might just be your personal nirvana. With its moody charcoal blue grays and minimalist design this place is simply beautiful!

Beautiful Georgetown Neighborhood

My favorite neighborhood lately is funky
Georgetown. It has the added distinction
of being the oldest neighborhood in Seattle.
With its own unique identity — one that’s
“industrial bohemian chic”, it’s one of the last
few remaining authentic neighborhoods in
Seattle. I love the grittiness, old rail yards,
bars with live music, coffeehouses, art galleries,
quirky culture, fun hangouts and restaurants
serving a diverse, hipster-leaning set.
Hidden amidst the sprawling warehouses
is an oasis of humanity.

Beautiful Board Game Cafe

Triopton Architects have designed the wonderfully creative
Alaloum Board Game Cafe located near Athens, Greece.
You can watch a video walk-through of the cafe – here.
Looks like fun to me. Love the Chutes and Ladders wall.

Where do old accordians go when they die?
They adorn the ceiling at the Collections Cafe.
Unique and creative reuse of old objects.
The Chihuly glass art is stunning.

Beautiful NYC Restaurant

When I came across this project, The Musket Room,
I immediately had the urge to jet across country
just to have the pleasure of dining in this beautiful
setting. I bet the food is as wonderful as well.
Love the scalloped tile and the fact they
have their own outdoor garden.
Simply scrumptious.
