London’s Bar La Rampa is a Cuban feast for the eyes

A-nrd Studio teamed up with a Cuban design historian to craft the restaurant’s interiors

The ‘decadence of 1950s Havana‘ was the catalyst for Bar La Rampa’s vintage-tinged interiors.

Located in Fitzrovia, and designed by London studio A-nrd, the restaurant serves Cuban-inspired small places and traditional dishes against a backdrop of rattan and tropical greenery.

The studio worked closely with a Cuban design historian to create the interiors, which offer a mix of old and new that aim to embody the spirit of the country – and in particular the “rich heritage and colourful characters” of the capital, according to the restaurant’s owners.

Tiled floors, tropical murals and cane furniture provide atmosphere, while the menu offers a list of classic Cuban cocktails to be sipped while dining on sharing plates of empanadas, sandwich Cubano and tostones, finished up with homemade churros.
