The space exudes an incredible classical cool vibe, that seems like a chic Parisian Brasserie. With an Art Deco Opulence, the marble tones and gold accents dominate. Alongside with decorative lighting, wingback chairs, and amazing tiles inspired by European cities.

The lighting is by New-York based design studio Apparatus. The dining room is furnished with vintage Franz Schuster chairs, backgammon tables and wingback chairs by Tom Dixon.

As this is a classic bar inside a luxury shop, the uniforms couldn’t miss. They collaborated with denim guru and artisanal up-cycler Maurizo Donadi of Atelier & Repairs to create a Goodman’s look. The uniform is vintage denim matched with chambray pockets.

The Bar will remain open with the same schedule as the store: From 10 am to 8 pm from Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, it will be open from 11 am to 7 pm.
