Balthazar + Schiller’s Liquor Bar = Bastille

In Design, See, Taste on August 18, 2009 at 6:36 AM




Some of my most blissful and adrenaline packed highs have taken place at Balthazar and Schillers. NYC does that to many people, but oh, how I love the patina, the bodies, and the butter.

Now we have Bastille here in Seattle. It’s not in the middle of Belltown, which makes it better. And frankly, I am jealous. A project like this, a budget like this… the possibilities and concepts keep me a wake at night.

P.S. I saw Lila from Friday Night Lights there on Saturday.

I would love to visit this artist’s community outsite of Beijing. I am sure that these famous examples are just the tip of the iceberg.
