Integrated in an old 18th century neo-gothic building in downtown Bucharest, Romania, Evolution Bar was envisioned by Sebastian Barlica and comes with an intriguing design.

The objective of the project and the owner’s brief focused on building a Mediterranean restaurant on the first floor and a night club in the basement. However, reinventing the space had its ups and downs: “The basement area is a brick vault with transverse arches; it has a relatively small net area and it was used initially for storage, so the task of transforming it into a contemporary space for clubbing and nightlife entertainment was quite challenging. That is why the designer came up with the idea of harmonizing, on one hand, stylized classical decorative elements with byzantine-like paintings on the main transverse arch, and, on the other hand, contemporary furniture and decorations using Solid Surface HI-MACS®”. The overall result is an eclectic gathering space, one that is in tune with the design of the neighboring clubs and night bars.
