Fans of Wes Anderson’s uniquely kitschy aesthetic will be happy to hear that the director designed a bar in Milan, Italy. It looks like it could be a set in one of his films.
Opening on May 9, Bar Luce is located within the Fondazione Prada—Prada’s art and culture center.
According to Wired, Anderson’s overall design plan for the bar was for it to “echo old-school Milanese cafés.” The bar features a number of vintage touches, including a juke box, pinball machines (appropriately Steve Zissou-themed), formica chairs and what Anderson describes as a “perfectly centered schoolhouse clock.” It also boasts wallpaper and arched ceilings that are meant to mimic the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is a local landmark. Anderson noted that his goal was to create a bar that he’d be comfortable spending his “non-fictional afternoons in,” and it looks like he nailed it.
