About The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards

Now in its eleventh year, the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards is a globally recognised competition dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces. And this is the first time a South African design studio has claimed this prestigious title. Leading industry professionals award prizes for the best work as voted by a panel of internationally recognised judges.

The Awards ceremony was attended by the world’s best designers and their clients responsible for the design of the most innovative food and beverage spaces. Entries from over 70 countries cover every imaginable space - from ships to airports, museums to burger vans, from revered Michelin-starred establishments to the fleeting dynamism of pop-ups.

“As a South African designer, to be in the same room as my international design icons is an honour in itself but to be recognised on a global level in front of peers that I’ve looked up to since the beginning of my career is almost unbelievable. It also re-affirms what I believe in: the potential within South African design. Not only can we compete at an international level, but also lead the field,” says Tristan Du Plessis.

The judges are the most influential global personalities from hospitality, design and lifestyle media and have previously included the Editor in Chief of Wallpaper*, Marcus Wareing and Thomas Heatherwick. The Awards are followed by over 40,000 of the most influential architects, designers, hospitality professionals and lifestyle media from around the globe. The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards receives regular press coverage from the world’s most influential design, hospitality and lifestyle press including AD Magazine, Elle Decor, Vogue Living, Dezeen and many more.

A celebration of excellence, from Most Innovative Style to Most Stylish Business Personality, Most Stylish SA Icon to the Arts & Philanthropic Icon Award, introduced in 2016, every year sponsors and judges unite in the search for South Africa’s most stylish individuals; and over the years The South African Style Awards have showcased the glamour, success and unmistakable sense of style of some of South Africa’s most stylish personalities.

Well Done, Urbanologi!

This year, Johannesburg’s finest avant-garde eatery, Urbanologi, won the title of best restaurant design in the Middle East and Africa category for 2017, an award which is recognised on a global scale. If this is not setting the bar up high for Africa - we truly don't know what is.
