Multicultural cousinism at Bismarckplatz. For the gastronomic concept as well as the restaurant name stood the butchery, which was once operated in the historical monument of the century turn. The restaurant developed within a very short time to a culinary hotspot in Stuttgart, which firmly anchored the long neglected Bismarckplatz in the Stuttgart gastronomy scene.


Spatial diversity


Divided into three subspaces - a main dining room with a counter and two other smaller, more intimate areas of space - the pub offers guests a well-coordinated range of seating options, from informal gatherings in the lounge area oriented around a deep wooden seating niche in the window line facing the square and at the bar clad in cowhide panels that dominates the main space, to intimate seating niches with simple benches of brushed laminated wood. In the back of the two small rooms, green plants suspended from simple rebar mats in clay pots create a vibrant and natural mural that stands out clearly against the black wall background.


"The spaces reveal themselves as a place where you forget time for a moment, an oasis of authenticity."


Authenticity through naturalness


Authentic materials and naturalness characterize the mood. The choice of materials is essentially limited to oil-treated raw steel, leather and brushed larch wood. These materials are accompanied by the color tones of the walls between black, blood red and soft pink. The clean feel of the space with its archaic furniture contrasts with the accent walls of soft pink, playful table settings and exciting flea market finds. Small details like the round leather seat cushions with red stitching that make the rustic workshop chairs comfortable to sit on reveal an attention to every detail, which is also reflected in the kitchen.


Between Today and Yesterday


The shelf, welded from rebars, accompanies the wall behind the counter and disappears with its black shelves. Only the vertical reinforcing bars gleam golden and are thus a structural element of space. It is all about content. The steel shelf is being read like a mixture of library and flea market items, somewhat between nostalgia and design. You and yourself somewhere between today and yesterday.


Moody light
The lighting is buzzing. A few precisely placed spots bring light onto the dining table and the coun- ter. From the wall-supporting steel racking system, light sources are spotlighting, which reveal the space of the shelf.


Above the hackblock, that both inwardly and outwardly honestly shows the identity of the con- cept, hangs an archaic round luminaire, which is rather like a reverse grill than a design piece. On the walls we and individually or pair arranged wall lights, small offshoots of the hanging light above the hack block. The attention is established on light is in the foreground, not the lamp design.
