5 RESTAURANTS WITH FABULOUS INTERIORS
What's better than having a delicious meal out? Having a delicious meal out while being surrounded by wonderful and whimsical interiors. We've rounded up some of the best restaurant and cafe spaces around the world. Not only are these places a feast for the eyes but they serve up some seriously good food too.
If you're going to San Francisco be sure to check out Leo's Oyster Bar! A vintage tropical paradise that harks back to the 1950's with a distinct Beverley Hill's hotel vibe. Plenty of cane furniture and greenery to boot. Retro cocktails, a hidden lounge and the best bit - lobster rolls! Check out this great write up in Architectural Digest.
No visit to Bali is complete without a visit to this glorious feast of colour and fun. Motel Mexicola brings a slice of Latin American style and swagger to Bali (not to mention the best margaritas!). It's covered in Mexican inspired artwork and religious iconography - prayer candles, crosses, Virgin Mary - the works! More wonderful images over at We Heart.
New kid on the block and little sister to the equally cool Top Paddock and Kettle Black, Higher Ground seriously brings it in the interior design stakes. It takes the typical Melbourne warehouse conversion to the next level with arch windows, soaring ceilings, plenty of polished concrete and exposed brick with the addition of plants to soften the industrial feel.
The moody, dark and sophisticated interior of this London restaurant harks back to days gone by. The restaurant is in a converted townhouse and is split up between dining and lounge areas. Lots of dark paint, low lights and luxurious velvet fabrics are used. More great pics and a review over at Ella - La Petit Anglaise.

This is my favourite restaurant in New York. Not only is the food brilliant and the cocktails delicious the interior is very hipster-esque with an eclectic look of an old school bar, a hunting lodge and grandmas house. The best part is the cute entrance way at the end of a lane way (like all Melburnian's we have a thing for laneways). See more images over at York Avenue Blog.
