Berlin Bar ‘Dean’ Would Suit Old Morton’s Spot In The Sinclair Centre

Restaurant Porn is a regular column of daydreams presented as a means to introduce Vancouver diners and designers to concepts, looks, and fully-formed ideas that they might draw an inkling of inspiration from. We do our best to pair the foreign rooms with local addresses so as to let everyone in on the daydream.

—————————————

(via) Berlin’s sexy Dean is more of a bar than a restaurant, but Vancouver could always use more of those (by our math, 95% of the good bars in Vancouver can be found in restaurants these days). Designed by local firm Bruzkus Batek in 2013, the place looks swanky as fuck, with lots of cloistered seating and mirrored panels recalling the The Babylon Club scene in the movie Scarface (fitting German translation here). If by some magic stroke of weirdness it was transported to Vancouver, we’d want it as a semi-private club of sorts, like PDX’s Multnomah Whiskey Library (so as to delay the inevitable forces of Donnelization). We’d also want it located somewhere discreet like the old Morton’s space under The Sinclair Centre (closed in 2009). If they played Eisbar and Das Model on a loop and served Bestie currywurst all night long (no set opening hours in Berlin!), we might even sign up as members.
