Balthazar Champagne Bar - Hotel D'Angleterre, Copenhagen, Denmark By Space Copenhagen

Balthazar Champagne Bar is the new lunch/evening bar designed by Space Copenhagen situated in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark. The project has been realized as part of a complete renovation of the iconic and leading classic luxury hotel, Hotel D’Angleterre. Occupying one of the most attractive locations in the city, Balthazar addresses both the Copenhagen locals, as well as accommodating guests from the hotel.

There has always been a certain mysterious and magic feel about hotel bars for us. There is something unpredictable about the mix of locals, travelers and hotel guests — an atmosphere that benefits from the mix of cultures and expectations. Inspired by this atmosphere we chose to work with a broad palette of materials and soft color tones to compose a cosy atmosphere and some intimate surroundings. Seeking a metropolitan look and feel, our wish was to balance out all the choices, resulting in a space that stays true to the spirit of Hotel D’Angleterre. This results in a balance between light and dark, soft and hard, rustic and refined, elegant and dreamy, graphic and colorful say architects

The heart and spine of Balthazar is the long black lacquer counter with surrounding bar stools. The counter spans from front to back of the space. The base of the bar is hand painted with accents of brass along with the wall panels. The long bar is surrounded by smaller groups of soft chairs and built-in sofas through-out the window niches. The chairs, sofas and curtains are all in variations of soft colored velvet. The backdrop of the interior is  fitted with floor-to-ceiling champagne cabinets featuring antique mirrors and darkened brass frames. The floor is a an anthracite grey antique and rustic marble with white borders framing the space. The venetian Barovier Chandeliers in goldened glass above the entire scenery, act as huge champagne sculptured clouds that ties the space together.
