At the entrance of The Grill, you will be immediately greeted by a vintage Royal Enfield BMW motorbike below a stairway that is leading you up to the upper floor bar section and adorned with a wall of racing memorabilia vintage Grand Prix framed posters, not forgetting the modern chandeliers hanging from the upper floor ceilings. How is that exactly the motorbike comes into the picture and associates with the dining concept? It revolves around a fictional world traveler with an immense love for art, hence motorcycle gear, vintage parts and other related accessories that can be found in the glass cabinets, even craftsman’s aprons are hung onto the wall on the other side of the restaurant hallway. A collector with a unique taste by displaying his collection at his “Penthouse”.
Designed and styled by New York-based AvroKO studio, the Penthouse Bar + Grill is a chic fit out that conveys a Park Hyatt design ethic, but also has a casual element with the mix of furnishings – art deco inspired chairs and a parquet wood ceiling design. Walking through the hallway you first have the open kitchen on the left and a DJ console spinning the latest track on top of the kitchen mezzanine. Color can certainly set the mood within a living space, but good lighting is essential in this respect. You can either dress up or let your hair down while dining at The Grill in a relaxed vibe.
Stunning rooftop views on three sides of the dining room with the open show kitchen at the centre of attention on one side makes for a beautiful experience. Plus there is an outdoor terrace when the weather is in the right element. The graceful flow of indoor and outdoor living spaces is one of the restaurant’s standout features. The main dining room rooms open out onto the expansive terraces designed for entertaining. With a very specific proposition to design for the outdoors, it is true to say that the most welcoming outdoor living space can lose its appeal on a drizzly, grey day, but interior space is improved by a spectacular view by investing in a beautiful outdoor room that far outweighs the drawbacks.
