(via) We’re well aware that a whisky bar in the basement of a West End residential building probably wouldn’t pass the NIMBY smell test, but that’s part of what makes the prospect so golden. Designed by Adam Wiercinski Architekt in the Polish city of Poznan, Zrodlo Bar is located in the basement of a tenement house on a busy street in the centre of town. Small, intimate, modern yet ancient, the uncluttered space looks urban without being too pretentious, and its streetside patio is equally on point. Bonus: dig the rebar and green leather roll seats!
