Studio Hermes, opened in 2013, is a club and restaurant located in Bucharest, Romania, and takes its name from an old cinema that used to stand on the same site in Bucharest’s Old Town.
Designed by Corvin Cristian, the venue hosts a wide variety of shows ranging from cabaret acts to live music gigs.
The restaurant’s design reflects and responds to the need for great acoustics, and the look is reminiscent of a 1960s auditorium.
Whilst featuring a contemporary approach to design, other elements of the restaurant are pure mid-twentieth century: the onyx bar, brass cymbal chandelier, velvet sofas and walnut wainscoting – in counterpoint to the bare concrete and exposed piping.
