ALL design studio has completed a new design of a celebrated cocktail bar in shanghai. the bar, ‘atelier by taste buds’ is the latest venture by daniel an, which works to create and barrel custom-made cocktail creations. inspired by the notion of the private workshop of a professional artist in the fine or decorative arts, it is named ‘atelier’ as it reflects this idea of craft. the concept aims to hark back to the profession of a mixologist, which demands a great deal of craftsmanship, including personal experiences and taste.

the designer has selected a fine, ‘back-in-time’ european style to decorate the space, combining it with a contemporary view, it creates a visual conflict with the original demolished mottled concrete walls. the narrow passage at the entrance is disguised as an elevator to peak curiosity. when night falls, the ‘elevator’ is switched on and upon entering, the patron goes through a long passage decorated with mixology tools and high proof cocktail barrels. after walking through this long passage, the vintage cocktails stored inside the barrels can be sampled at the bar.

the designer has also used an art deco touch in the space to bring classic beauty to the ‘atelier’. the bar area was originally a central kitchen area of a restaurant, therefore the design has retained the feature to provide customers with amazing appetizers. the top of the bar is decorated by a fan, symbolizing the engine of the bar. the kitchen is wrapped in a three-sided wall, each side of which stores a different type of liquor: whisky, gin and tequila. the long bar allows customers to enjoy the cocktails, while in the seating area, traces of the original kitchen can be seen. under the concept of ‘atelier’, the resulting design by ALL design studio embodies the idea of craftsmanship and takes patrons back in time.
