The Library Bar and Lounge, located in The Leela Palace, Chennai, sits off the main Lobby of the hotel overlooking the sea of Bengal. The team’s mission was to create a Bar that continued in the hotel group Library Bar tradition. As Chennai is derived from the Tamil word face, a series of large painted faces greet you upon entry into the Library Bar.
It was to be opulent and palatial with a timeless elegance and youthful appeal, as the design team overlooked the sea Chennai is traditionally a very hot and humid climate so they chose a cool cobalt blue as a dominant colour theme.
Mixed with a golden palette, back lit blue hand cast glass mixes with the blue mirror, glass and leather clad celing. It is moody, and dramatic.
