That bar is close to the Roman Theatre, and it is in the ground floor, with a direct entrance from the street.

Inside it is illuminated by natural light because the facade is a continuous glass that generates the outside image. The skylights transmit the light to the dark areas.

The bar is like a simple continues surface that is divided in different areas depending on the use, and it is folded in each case -apparently at random-. Also, the tables can be situated in different position.

The floor is made with travertine, as a continuous plane.

The name of the bar is repeated to mix the relation between inside-outside and the views that we can have in both sides of the facade.
