Format: Hardcover
This is a rare treat for those who consider themselves as enthusiasts towards the cocktail and bar scene. Bethan Ryder, the author of 'Bar and Club Design, is no stranger to the delights of innovative interior design, as she is a regular columnist for theme (Bar & Restaurant Style), but as also contributed to:
Space magazine (the Guardian), Arena, I-D, Elle Decoration, FX, Interiors for Architects & Designers, Sleeper (hotel design) and CLASS (bar culture) - so your in safe hands then.
This 210 illustrated book is jam packed with snaps of the weird and wonderful, which is a great reference for those in the business, interior design/ architecture or if you just have a keen interest. Supported by stunning photography, it's a splendid presentation of a recent craze in design and a shift in culture, where the heritage and background towards this fetish is also analysed in a 'socio-historic context', in a sufficient manner that it deserves your attention. Features Bars, Restaurant Bars, Hotel Bars and Clubs, a huge variety of venues are chosen and treated as individual case studies, so you can get the most from it.
I personally found it user friendly, with a stylistic layout that you'd come to expect. It didn't try to be something that it's not, as the author's use of tone demonstrates her intentions to engross the reader, but not to come across as the bible-to-bar-and-club-culture-wannabe. It may broaden your view of a culture that as usually been an underground revolution to date, but over the last few years it has stamped its mark thanks to the visions of its owners, the creativity of the architects/ designers and definately to such people as Ms. Ryder, who supply the exposure that they deserve. Inspirational - thought provoking.

HASH(0x8e4d5a5c) out of 5 stars an HONEST assessment 23 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book based upon the posted reviews. I have often wondered if the regular buying public actually contributed these or if the author or their friends wrote em to increase sales. I now know. Bar and Club design is a lot of sizzle and no steak. The photographs are nice if you are in to super slick Euro looking clubs where you can visually hear the techno trash music in the background. The pictures are amusing only because you look at them once and think why? I guess that is why they were selected for this book. There are no ideas anyone spending their own money would care to emulate; unless you are spending Euro's or Yen. I did not get even one idea from this book and I am an open minded guy looking for ideas. May I suggest 'Successful Restaurant Design' and 'Restaurants That Work.' Even though they say restaurant in the title they show many more pictorial ideas, floorplans and insight for bars than this disappointment.

HASH(0x8d648ac8) out of 5 stars For commercial interior designers and club owners 11 May 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Bar And Club Design by London-based interior design and leisure expert Bethan Ryder is a simply gorgeous, amazing, and occasionally inspiring showcase of countless possibilities to create the perfect ambience for bars and clubs that feature drinking and dancing. Stunning color photography captures an eclectic variety of differing layouts covering internal moods from relaxed to energetic to post-modern. Supplemented by an exhaustive and informative text, as well as artistic perspectives and simple layout diagrams, Bar And Club Design is a superb and strongly recommended reference and a first-class source book for commercial interior designers and club owners seeking remodeling ideas.

By J. Duncan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No offense meant to Bethan but as an Interior Architect looking for a reference, I wanted to air my views. I had to look at the published date because many of the clubs appear to be right out of the 1970's! I did appreciate the floor plans but didn't find the content to be inspirational for my design sensibilities.

HASH(0x8d35099c) out of 5 stars Interior Design student review 16 Feb. 2005
By E. George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the 1st time I've felt compelled to write a review at amazon. I am doing so because it really delivers the goods. I am a design student and ran across this book at the campus library. I checked it out and immediately read it cover to cover. It was an enlightening look at the variety of club and bar styles from all over the world. There were many understated and elegant bars and clubs included, not just the "super slick euro" designs one reviewer claimed. I have to assume they must have just skimmed the book and that was all they saw. There were plenty of trendy looking clubs in the book but that is the nature of the beast. I plan to now purchase this book and the new restaurant book by the same author to use as reference books when I am looking for inspiration.

HASH(0x8e4d5f18) out of 5 stars Author strikes back.... 20 Jun. 2004
By Bethan Ryder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Re: San Antonio reader.
As author of Bar & Club Design, with (evidently) currently too much spare time , I should like to point out a few things to the San Antonio reader who posted a review. Firstly, that I know none of the other readers who have posted reviews, they are not my bribed friends! And secondly, this book is actually a source book primarily aimed at architects and designers, many of whom find such books a useful tool for inspiration and ideas; it is not meant to be a step-by-step guide to how to design a bar or club.
Just wanted to get that straight for other readers of this page, so don't let Disparaging of ST dissuade you if that sounds up your street. And if you like this book, look out for 'Restaurant Design' due out this August (2004).
As the author I had no idea what to grade myself, so obviously put 5 stars...at least it'll grab your attention right?
