Chromatically inspired by nature and rooted in simplicity and openness, traditional Greek interior design at Blanco, conceptualized by Hiren Ganatra and Saloni Ganatra from Colab, is a glorious example of less is more. As one enters, on the outside the place features a front-gable design, whitewashed walls with vibrant blue-coloured wooden windows, Aztec prints and decorative columns, reminiscent of ancient Greek structures.
Area rugs featuring stripe patterns mostly of flowers, trellises and classic motifs have been used instead of wall-to-wall carpeting, also lending the bar a rustic feel. Glazed pottery and coloured glassware have been typically placed as accessories.
Designed to facilitate the old school ‘sit down drinking culture’ and ‘conversations’ over a satiating meal with family and friends, hand cut mirrors, black and white tile patterns, high stool seating, graffiti wall art and umbrella shaped steel lights specially made by hand is what defines the high energy bar space. Adding an element of significance is the mini live juice counter which serves unconventional yet refreshing blends of smoothies, fresh juices, and healthy shakes.
