Next to its menu, a restaurant’s ambiance is often its best selling point. When they walk in and sit down, customers should be able to fully immerse themselves in their meal, from browsing the menu to their order being set in front of them.

Lisbon’s Seen restaurant takes this idea a step further by engaging every inch of the restaurant into the overall theme and décor. From the cocktail bar wrapped around a tree trunk to the living canopy of leaves covering the ceiling, it makes for the ultimate fantasy experience.

Sidney Quintela Architecture + Urban Planning designed the restaurant, sticking to an art deco feel inspired by The Great Gatsby. In addition to the lush greenery overhead, marble and brass elements are also featured; with decorative metal arches wrapping around the cocktail bar.
