Off the wall chicken shop Absurd Bird and interior design studio Shed have come together to create the latest absurd restaurant located in Bath.
Referencing the American state of Louisiana the restaurant exposes two sides of the South; Southern sharing vs Southern scaring. Upon arrival patrons are greeted with a vibrant facade clad with a plethora of playful patterns. Past the grinning facade lies a dark, de-saturated envelope referencing the sinister silhouettes and menacing forms of Southern Gothic cinema. Sitting within the looming shadows of the clad mezzanine is the vibrantly coloured central bar. Like an overly saturated version of a Kubrick horror the bar sits ominously within the space. The bar, thrashed in bright pink and turquoise is topped with a garishly clad over-bar only seen on the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras; The over-bar; layered with crude patterns and strewn with ‘Mardi Gras Throws’ owns the space acting as the heart of the restaurant.
