For those folks who prefer to get a drink in a local watering hole, this is not for you. But for those who can appreciate the work and talent that goes into transforming a place to get drinks and socialize into a virtual underwater Abyss, you might enjoy this. Romanian design firm The 6th Sense Interiors, who is known for their eclectic and steampunk style have created unbelievable atmosphere in The Abyss Pub, located in Italy. Designers Alexandru Tohotan and Zoltan Zelenyak took their cues from the lore of the Kraken as the mythical creature stretches its tentacles across the bar ceiling. Placed above the steampunk bar, it defends its lair from all visitors.
“According to the myth, we wanted to create the struggle between monster and boat, and at the same time we intended to give life to the sea monster by using several elements that would suggest its dynamic: the position of the tentacles, the spears that pierce its arms,” the designers explain. “One of the sea monsters arms was placed in a way that suggests he is pulling the boat down with him into the abyss!”
If you ever get a chance to visit Italy this is one spot you’ll want to make an appearance at. Just be sure to watch out for the Kraken!
