2018: Off Club
Restaurant Bar Rome




Off Club is an Asian fusion restaurant, mixology cocktail bar and lounge in Rome’s Casal Bertone. Under one raw gold ceiling, this work of architecture reunites the cinema of Kubrick and De Palma, Grand Theft Auto, Miami Art Deco District, black psychedelia, Jung’s primordial images, Escher’s perspectives, Byzantine iconostases, and Japanese folding screens.
