Featuring a stunning ceiling installation that sparks curiosity, the 'If Dogs Run Free' bar is a project by Tzou Lubroth Architekten.

Located in the trendy Viennese district of Gumpendorfer Stra├če, this space stands out with its artistic intent. The protruding ceiling is meant to resemble a mountainous range interpreted as a geometric fantasy. It serves the purpose of optical illusion, conversation piece and installation host.

Mirrors multiply the ceiling's effect and give the space a whimsical look. With the contrast of an otherwise minimalist dark palette and simple decor, the ceiling aims to grab patron's attention stimulating artistic thought. The If Dogs Run Free bar is a cutting edge venue that melds the genres of installation, music and nightlife beautifully.
