The interior design of CHAR Bar & Grill inside the Hotel Indigo Shanghai is a striking and sophisticated mix of masculine and feminine elements. There are textured granite walls, raw dark wood paneling, metal mesh curtains, gorgeous standing glass lanterns and an impressive wall display of iron pots and pans. A few accent tables are set with dramatic flower displays and the lighting is low and warm, with small glowing candle-like lamps on each table. The result is a space that is both romantic enough for a special date but also refined and serious enough for an important business meal. The space, designed by HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates, includes a main dining room, open kitchen, bar, two terraces and private dining rooms.
