It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with beautiful interiors and stunning design. It’s also no secret that I’m a huge fan of super delicious cocktails. That’s why when I came across Mr. Simon- a secret cocktail bar in Udine, Italy (thank the gods for Designboom), I knew I had to share it with you immediately.

If Stanley Kubrick and Wes Andersen had a baby, it would be this bar’s aesthetic. Designed by Visual Display, a brand and interior design agency, Mr. Simon is a cocktail bar for the chic adventurer. Hidden behind a broom closet, guests have access by reservation only and in possession of an access code. The bar seats just 25 people, making for a very intimate affair. The cocktails are dynamic and rare- the menu is inspired by the host’s various trips around the world, or by whatever the mood strikes at the moment. The blue velvet furnishings give it a sultry and luxurious air. I can only imagine the epic selfies taken in the mirror encased bathroom. Mr. Simon is definitely on my list for places to visit when I make it to Northern Italy, and it should be on your list too. Check out pictures of the gorgeous bar below.
