Eduard’s Whisky Bar in Stuttgart Should Brighten the False Creek Seawall

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) It would be normal of Vancouverites to think of whisky bars as being semi-dark spaces rinsed in the patina of a bygone era; it’s what we’ve come to know both near (eg. The Shebeen) and far (eg. Multnomah). But what if this type of establishment put an aesthetic foot forward in a completely modern direction?

WHAT IT IS: Eduard’s is a new whisky bar with curved, high-glassed frontage and a sexy interior designed by German firm Dittel Architekten. The slick spot comes complete with a section of stadium seats, a short bar, iron light fixtures, exposed concrete and copper accents throughout.

WHERE IT IS: The newly constructed luxury Dorotheen Quartier of Stuttgart, the capital of southwest Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state. It is a manufacturing city with almost the same population as Vancouver’s (615k).

WHERE WE WISH IT WAS: The False Creek waterfront, close to Ancora at the foot of Granville Street.

WHY WE WISH IT WAS THERE: Because something so striking and conceptually on permanent trend (a good whisky bar will always have a place) would do well just about anywhere, and this stretch of our seawall could use a late night venue. To the NIMBY condo dwellers above who might complain about noise, I say balls. They live in a city; 24/7 tranquility isn’t part of the deal.
