Himitsu, a cocktail lounge-bar in Atlanta opening this summer.


Inspired by Japanese mixology and American prohibition, Himitsu will be a darkly theatrical speak-easy, peppered with rich colours and textures.

Design Research Studio have designed a raw yet sophisticated aesthetic for the brand new cocktail lounge. Playfully offsetting slick metallics against rougher natural materials, the pre-existing industrial features and exposed structural details remain.

The focal point of Himitsu will be the illuminated copper bar which will perfectly frame the alchemy that will be performed by mixologists and celebrates the craftsmanship behind the cocktail making process.
