Wes Anderson films make us feel like we've been transported to a very aesthetically pleasing — if slightly trippy — different world. If you've ever found yourself wishing you could escape into one of his creations like we have, then, well — here's your chance. There's a whimsical, new cafe in Chengdu, China modeled after "The Grand Budapest Hotel" film in all of its pink and green glory.
The Budapest Cafe was designed by Australian-based studio Biasol, and was practically placed on this earth to be Instagrammed. It offers a modern, minimalist take on the nostalgic designs seen in the film.
" We began by understanding Anderson's style: his symmetrical, precise, and quirky set designs; vivid and nostalgic color palettes; and the sentiment that infuses his films." — Biasol
The facade of the cafe projects a sense of grandeur, much like the fictional Grand Budapest Hotel, with an arch framing the entrance and gold accents.
The inside of the cafe features arches, quirky stairs that lead to nowhere, and a long, marble bar. The hues of pink and green found everywhere from the walls to the seating are soft and feminine.
