Project - Silverleaf Bar London
SILVERLEAF is a new destination cocktail bar at the Pan Pacific London hotel, whose design is inspired by ‘naturalism and the elements’. Located in the 144-year-old Devonshire House – a separate building adjacent to the hotel – Silverleaf’s bar will include a semi-private area and Alba; a separate intimate space that accommodates up to 12 people and is designed for private drink experiences as well as being home to a bottle-keep for customers.

Pan Pacific London has collaborated with Design Research Studio – the design, interiors and innovations agency at the heart of Tom Dixon – to create bespoke lighting, furniture and accessories as well as oversee the vision and development of Silverleaf’s brand identity. The selection of materials used within the space mirror the elements’ core natural and tactile qualities such as blackened hot rolled steel, marble, charred timber and salt-glazed hand-crafted British bricks.

Standout design features include a one-off live edge timber table, bespoke tables carved from solid marble blocks as well as the whisky nosing glasses from Tom Dixon’s PUCK range, which were developed especially for Silverleaf.
On arrival, guests will be greeted by an animated, polished stainless steel light sculpture designed and custom-made by Design Research Studio. A temperaturecontrolled gold display cabinet is situated in the turret of the bar and is home to high-value bottles. The bar stretches the length of the room and is built from a striking split-rock edge face marble.

The menu has also been designed by the Tom Dixon team. The dark, slate grey textured cover follows the naturalistic elements used within the rest of the bar, and has a sleek debossed Silverleaf logo on the front. The drinks on the menu are divided by a distinctive symbolic language through flavour profiles and are represented through unique geometric colour profiles, which is printed on stone paper.
