Club MUSÉE is Madrid’s fresh take on what night clubs could be — a combination art gallery and night club, but both with a sharp, trendy edge.


 
Designed by creative director and designer Parolio of Madrid’s Parolio & Euphoria Lab the space provides a strong back-drop for powerful art.


 
At Club MUSÉE black glass and mirrors, bright-colored sculptural furniture and a three-meter-wide  LED video screen create a visual challenge for the artists’ work that ranges from paintings to video art and other  installations.


 
The work of upcoming photography and illustration talent is currently on display from photographer Robert Bartholot from Berlin,  Paco Peregrín from Madrid  and illustrator Glenn Hilario from New York.


 
The visual feast is supported by music mixed by Madrid’s hottest DJs who offer electronic, pop and house music.

Parolio’s strong sense of drama, theater and color work well at Club MUSÉE, and is evident in many of his other projects, including Pacha Madrid night club and Le Marquis restaurant and lounge.  - Bill Tikos

Luzi Bombón in Madrid is the latest restaurant creation of the Barcelona-based Grupo Tragaluz.



The group’s beginnings date back to 1987, when mother and son, Rosa Maria Esteva and Tomas Tarruella, opened El Mordisco in Barcelona.



Now, 20 restaurants and one hotel -- OMM in Barcelona -- later, their brand is a strong, established player in the Spanish hospitality market.



Luzi Bombón on Paseo de la Castellana offers madrileños Mediterranean brasserie food from early lunch in the garden to late-night drinks in the bar with live DJs.



The mid-century minimalist interior design of Luzi Bombón is by Esteva’s daughter, Sandra Tarruella www.sandratarruella.com. - Tuija Seipell

On first glance, The Passenger restaurant, recently opened in the trendy Malasaña neighborhood’s Triball area in Madrid, Spain, appears like any retro dining establishment with heavy-handed use of leather, brass and dark wood. Yet there is a distinct undertone of a train, of a fine passenger train of a bygone era.


 
The bulky and clubby arm chairs, the iron table legs, the big windows all refer to a time when heads of state and industrialists, often travelling with their wives and servants, occupied entire train cars and dined in the most lavishly appointed dining cars rivalling the best-known fine establishments of the time.


 
But the real fun aspect of the 150-seat The Passenger -- coffee bar by day, rock bar by night --  is the illusion of movement. The three “windows” in the main seating area are actually video screens onto which a constant, synchronized stream of video is programmed so that it flows  from window to window, creating a feeling of looking out the window of a moving train.


 
The stylized train view, evoking an alternate state of being in the middle of busy Madrid, was created by Spanish video artist Franger. The images of both urban scenes and natural landscapes were recorded from actual trains around the world.



The restaurant’s designers at Parolio took their inspiration from the long-and-narrow space and then continued with the train travel concept throughout. Consistent with the classic rock music played at night, the main hall of the restaurant is decorated with images of the greatest stars of classic rock pictured in trains and railway stations.
 
The Passenger’s  owners are young Spanish actors Rodrigo Taramona and Jimmy Castro with  entrepreneurs Miguel Peman and Carlos Carrillo. - Tuija Seipell
