Humbert & Poyet interior design agency has recently unveiled a pop-up Beefbar on the Boulevard de la Croisette, Cannes.
The Beefbar is back on the iconic French Riviera this summer and to mark its return, the private beach of Le Grand Hôtel Cannes has been exquisitely redesigned by Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet of Humbert & Poyet.
With a restaurant on one side and a lounge area on the other, there is a very bohemian chic atmosphere from the moment you walk in. Driftwood and hues of blue, grey, beige and yellow create a genuinely warming and comforting feel that transports guests away from the hustle and bustle of the promenade above.
Beneath a patchwork of sky blue and grey shutters, the wide grey and white parquet panels lie at an angle with the bench seating that lines the restaurant walls. Upholstered in the same shade of grey, the seats and chair-backs are of a sleek straight-line design. To achieve their boho-chic and eco-friendly style, Emil
Humbert and Christophe Poyet chose lightwood dining and side tables to create a sense of being at one with nature. Simple hanging decorations, such as wicker cages or bare light bulbs, create a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and flutter gently in the sea breeze.
The Chef, Thierry Paludetto, has devised a summer menu to complement the interior. It includes Kobe beef, Kobe street food to share, a burger bar with a selection of salads, tartars and ceviche as well as a variety of cuts of beef from all over the world: ‘Rioplatense’ Argentinian Angus beef, ‘Rangers Valley’ Australian Black Angus beef, ‘Creekstone Farms’ American Black Angus beef, ‘Snake River Farms’ American Wagyu beef and certified Japanese Kobe beef.
On the other side of the central aisle is the lounge area where guests can simply relax, take a seat in one of the luxurious looking armchairs and enjoy a drink or dessert. Large plump cushions add an inviting touch. Here, grey, white and yellow hues prevail. When night falls, the light filtering through hanging wicker decorations casts a soft, welcoming glow over the lounge. On the beach, an elegant row of deckchairs and two-seater sunbeds face the sea along the length of the pontoon, creating a sensation of floating above the water.
With tables in the sun and in the shade that are protected by a retractable awning, the “Water’s edge Beefbar” is open daily from now until the end of September.
