Some say an upscale restaurant’s ambiance is usually as important as the quality of its food.
I don’t entirely agree with that myself – I could be eating filet mignon out of a styrofoam carry-out container in a Paterson, NJ basement and wouldn’t care as long as the meat is good. But some restaurants go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to creating a jaw-dropping atmosphere.
Like the Copper Canyon Cocktail bar that overlooks the Basaseachic Falls of Mexico.
Created by design studio Tall Arquitectos, the cliffside restaurant is comprised of two levels: a bar and a dining area.
As you can see from the photo above, the bar’s floor is made entirely out of glass, so you can pinpoint approximately where your body will land if the floor suddenly gave out.
The tables in the dining area are positioned to expose guests to fully enjoy the breathtaking views afforded by the structure’s daring design.
The building is in the planning phase now, so what you’re seeing are some high-quality renders of the proposed project.
Would you be able to eat here? I’d like to think I could scarf down food anytime, anywhere, but I’d probably be too nervous to do anything except worry about the building hurdling down the side of the mountain. Then again, this restaurant does seem really, really cool.
