IZAKAYA Munich is a unique mix of the ethnic
feel of a Japanese inspired restaurant and the
modern, sleekly but elegant Hotel Roomers.
The Japanese stand-alone restaurant IZAKAYA,
located in the building of Hotel Roomers, announces
its presence to the guests at the moment of arrival,
with the show kitchen visible through the glass facade
of the porte-cochere from Hotel Roomers Munich.
The restaurant itself is composed of an array of black
materials, with a contrasting feature of light wooden
lamellas along the ceiling and wall towards the kitchen.
The space is structured into two zones by a solid seating
booth element in the centre. A three-step level change
separates the bar zone at the entrance from the quieter
restaurant zone in the rear. The rotating vertical panels
in the centreline of the the centreline of the booth
element can connect or separate the space depending
on the angle of rotation. In the early evening, the whole
space can appear as one. After restaurant hours, the bar
can be closed off to establish a darker and cosy mood
that lasts deep into the night. The eye-catchers are the
oversized wooden koi-carp lamp by LZF above the long
table and the Japane se-inspired artwork on silkscreen
by Gijs Scholten.
