14/01/2014 - The call for entries for the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards is now open. Totally independent, the UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards is the world's only concept of its kind dedicated exclusively to the design of food and drink spaces.
The Awards invites and receives entries from the world's top architects, designers and hospitality operators. The judges are a highly influential panel of top design, lifestyle & hospitality personalities, whose role is to recognize and reward entrants for design excellence.
The judging panel for the 2014 includes landscape and garden designer Andy Sturgeon, Design Hotels CEO and President Claus Sendlinger, artists Gerry Judah and Kaffe Fassett, chefs Mark Hix and Yotam Ottolenghi, and Thomas Heatherwick, the founder of Heatherwick Studio.
Höst, a restaurant in Denmark designed by NORM ARCHITECTS, and Atrium Champagne Bar at the ME London Hotel, which was designed by Foster + Partners, were the overall winners of the 2013 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.
The winners of the various categories including the best designed restaurant and the best designed bar, will be announced at an Awards ceremony & party in central London in late September 2014.
