‘deep bar’ hosts underground wine and mixology bars

 

deep bar is a two-story venue in dnipro city, ukraine, that unites an underground bar with a floral shop and a small café. designed by local studio YOD group, the bar features natural, tactile materials, along with a thoughtful lighting scheme, to create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere. 

 

the first floor holds the flower shop and café and functions as the entrance hall with massive steel doors hiding the stairs that lead to a roomy basement. once underground, visitors are met by a wine bar with a chamber-like atmosphere and high vaulted ceiling, and a mixology bar with lounge seats. a smoking zone, hookah area, partly opened kitchen, and DJ spot also occupy the venue’s basement.

an intimate ambience of deep connections and contentment

 

YOD group designers used oak wood as the primary interior material to emulate an intimate, chamber-like ambiance. recycled boards from a 70- year-old building were also injected into the design for a more ‘honest’ accent. moreover, the absence of windows turned out to be a big advantage. ‘that is a perfect thing for such an evening bar format,’ reveals the team. 

 

beside functional material, the project also includes two sizeable installations with emotional resonance. above the mixology bar, guests can see roots hanging from the ceiling — a design that nods to the flower roots from the shop above. in other words, this installation conceptually connects both levels to show a ‘deep’ enmeshment. ‘everything is connected, and every action has some roots,’ explains YOD group.

the second installation represents a man’s face made from timber slots . placed behind the bar counter, the 3D artwork is a symbol of being content with oneself and the world. indeed most people, the team argues, come to a bar to get that feeling of peace and contentment.
