The room is a beautiful combination of the bar and the restaurant, a gorgeously designed grandiose space by the Dutch company FG stijl. The dark yet soothing colours together with the bright marble work and stunning lighting pieces create a comfortable and highly sophisticated ambience. The ancient building that used to be the central banking hall is now renovated and houses the splendid ‘The Bank’ restaurant, maintaining the heritage of the building and the city and adding a modernity touch that makes of it a charismatic place to enjoy a perfect meal or the fascinating bar for family or friends.
FG stijl made an optimal use of the grandeur and original features of the hall while creating a beautiful environment for fine dining. The central hall, with its elaborate ceiling and stained glass, is flanked by two adjoining sky-lit spaces with meticulously restored glass ceilings. When entering the restaurant, guests are greeted at a bespoke aperitif bar of silver-leaf and mother-of-pearl with a blue onyx counter-top. Ahead, the main dining hall has a vast carpet especially designed to reflect the resplendent restored ceiling in vibrant and bold colours. In each corner of the dining area is a plinth with each a large crystal and bronze light feature, inspired by Vienna’s Secession Building, created for the hotel by the firm Lights of Vienna, giving the restaurant a magical sparkle.
Intimacy is created in the restaurant by the beautifully crafted banquet seating, inspired by the originals of the banking hall. Timbers are an ebonized oak and fabrics are bold and rich. Another feature of the restaurant is the prominence of the show kitchens. The worktops on bases of hand-cut selenite are lit in a way to create spectacle and intrigue. Above the worktops, there are spectacular cantilevered extractor hoods that seem to float above the show kitchens. All of this is set to the backdrop of perfectly book-matched marble panels and a central patisserie oven and chef’s table. The restaurant also has a private salon situated at the very rear of the room, behind gilded original doors, where FG stijl created a space with a black crystal ceiling, embedded with silver signs of the zodiac. This salon has its own wine cases, show kitchen, seating and a focal table inspired by originals from the building. The walls are covered in blue and silver leather making the space a true hidden gem within the walls of the hotel. Enough reasons to book your next trip to Vienna and stay at the Park Hyatt Vienna.
