What do you do when you have a long, narrow, empty restaurant venue in Spain and want to create something new and interesting? Turn it into a train, of course. The Passenger restaurant in Madrid, Spain is an eclectic new hot spot complete with club chairs, mahogany accents, and a distinctly art deco vibe that hearkens back to the olden days of luxury travel by way of passenger trains. Leather, dark wood, and brass help create the atmosphere of a bygone era, but the real wow factor with the Passenger restaurant comes by way of the three big “windows” in the main seating area. Rather than actual windows, the owners have installed three screens that continuously play a streaming version of the countryside, as if you are actually on a train while you eat. The idea is innovative, and the owners did a great job creating a cohesive design, as you can see.
All we need are some private bathrooms for mass-transit sex, and the Passenger will be on its way to be an icon in the world of fine dining.via ]
