The influence of Instagram continues to grow year on year and is showing no signs of slowing down. Creating instagrammable moments is now part of design briefs as more and more venues contend for free publicity and the genuine footfall created in the quest for a perfect selfie. Bars and restaurants now need to offer more than just exceptional food and service as this social platform plays a key role in the success of many hospitality venues.
We take a look at 5 of our most instagrammable projects to date.
1. The Marlin Hotel
The brand new 300-bed hotel, The Marlin is top of our list when it comes to instagrammable moments. This unique hotel is filled with quirky features including a vespa scooter, retro phone booth, horsebox coffee station and a live Olive tree in the middle of the indoor lounge area.
2. The Cloth Ear
This award-winning hotel bar combines a rich seam of Victorian history with a thoroughly modern experience. High ceilings with beautiful architectural detail painted in striking teal alongside our bespoke handcrafted furniture creates a stunning visual interior. Phone goals (a clever tactic employed by the Cloth Ear to encourage conversation) are placed on each table, ironically creating an insta-worthy opportunity.
3. The Wholesome Kitchen
