Brasserie St.Bernardus in Tokyo is a beer hall/eatery designed by Aiji Inoue and Yuki Kanai of Doyle Collection. The Tokyo based architects founded their design on a traditional store front in Belgium. The warm welcoming space follows the tradition of “a bar designed along with a brewery”, a venue for eating, drinking and celebrating which lives and breathes the Belgian culture within its walls.
The wooden arch over the open bar and kitchen area and the visible loft displaying empty beer crates and barrels bring to mind a brewery warehouse. The simple wooden tables and chairs are designs following the traditional shapes and imported antique chandeliers from Belgium once hung in local establishments.
Expanses of dark wood and leather topped bar stools, a map of Belgium and beer labels all enhance the spirit of the St.Bernardus brewery as if the brasserie had been plucked from Belgium and set down in a more contemporary style in Tokyo.
