Just like Tinseltown preparing for the Academy Awards season at the beginning of the year, the restaurant & bar design industry is preparing for awards season, and similarly to Titanic at the Oscars in 1998, we’ve been shortlisted for a whole host of awards at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards in October. We’re just hoping that’s where the analogy ends and we’re not left with that sinking feeling…

Keane are up for 11 awards in total for Bar&Beyond (Mural or Graffiti), BU! (Middle East or Africa Restaurant, Lighting and Outside), Aji (Mural or Graffiti and Middle East or Africa Restaurant) and Gold on 27, which is nominated for a total of 5 awards including Middle East or Africa Bar, Surface Interiors, Colour, Ceiling and Luxury.

We’ll be keeping fingers crossed for the big event in October but in the meantime we’re still riding high off the back of our Best Café, Bar or Loung Design Project win for Gold on 27 at the Index Awards.
