Of course, we want restaurants to have top-notch food and drink, but we also want them to be aesthetically-pleasing; a well-designed space lends atmosphere and ambience to the dining experience, certainly, but it also makes for some delectable Instagram material.
Below is a list of restaurants around the world that have it all: delicious menu offerings and a majorly Instagram-worthy interior. Check out these four Instagrammable restaurants around the world.
Aoyama Flower Market Tea House (Tokyo, Japan)
Nestled among the busy streets of downtown Tokyo lies the Aoyama Flower Market Tea House. Essentially a café and a florist all in one, this unique setting is something akin to an indoor garden or greenhouse. A trellis covered in foliage, plants hanging from the ceiling, and flowers on the table are just a few staples of this Japanese tea house, located in the Akasaka Biz Tower. In terms of food and drink, they have a large menu of tea, each served as a full pot in a glass pitcher, and some with fruit and edible flowers inside. For something heartier than tea, they also offer a selection of soups, sandwiches, toast with various spreads, salads, and a cheese plate. For those with a sweet tooth, don’t forget about dessert! Desserts at the Aoyama Flower Market Tea House are floral-themed and range from Rose Jelly to Flower French Toast. From the food to the garden-like atmosphere, you can bet this is a great spot to snap some pics for the ’gram.
Habanera (Madrid, Spain)
A tropical — and majorly Instagram-worthy — paradise awaits at Habanera. This Madrid spot is covered in fresh greenery from top to bottom (seriously, plants are both on the ground and hanging from the ceiling). To complement the flora, design and décor choices include a black and white tiled floor, bamboo light fixtures, and couch cushions in a variety of lively prints. The menu is all about fusion cuisine: fresh pasta, tempura shrimp, carpaccio, cannelloni, flatbread pizza, and a classic hamburger are just a few of the items you can indulge in at Habanera.
Hacienda Sydney (Sydney, Australia)
Mint green and millennial pink comprise the colour palette at Hacienda Sydney, a trendy bar in Australia’s largest city. If those on-trend hues aren’t enough to entice you, there are tall palms placed throughout and a trellis ceiling complete with hanging vines and white wisteria. Plus, Hacienda is located at Sydney Harbour, boasting spectacular views of the infamous Harbour Bridge. This means that whether you’re snapping pics with the view or bar in the background, you can bet it’s going to be ’gram-worthy. In terms of food offerings, finger foods like pumpkin flowers, chicken sliders, prawn skewers, and tuna ceviche await. Meanwhile, cocktails range from the Wild Ginger Julep (made with bourbon-infused ginger, rosemary syrup, lemon juice, and mint) to the Fresa Spritz (comprising elderflower liqueur, strawberry syrup, soda water, and Prosecco).
Atlas Bar (Singapore)
Art deco gets a revival at the majorly-Instagrammable Atlas Bar in Singapore. Despite only being completed in 2002, the interior takes inspiration from the art deco skyscrapers of Europe and New York City. Jazz Age glamour and elegance is what it’s all about, so be sure to look the part while you’re sipping on the ’20s-esque house specialties: gin, champagne, and spirits. They also have an expansive cocktail menu, all with names that serve as an homage to the Roaring Twenties: Hotel Nacional, 20th Century, and Louis Cartier, to name a few. In the way of food, you’ll find a sizeable bar menu with cold and hot appetizers and seven main dishes to choose from. They also offer afternoon tea with your choice of savoury and sweet accompaniments.
