The Mistral Wine and Champagne Bar is a stunning space showcasing alcoholic beverages in a modern and minimalist way. Forgoing the typical shelving units, this store displays wine and champagne bottles on backlit walls, making it appear as though they are floating in midair.

Designed by Studio Arthur Casas and located in São Paulo, Brazil, the Mistral Wine and Champagne Bar bridges the gap between the in-store and online consumer. The clean lines and bright lighting bring to mind a digital world while the wood panels add an undeniable warmth. Complete with a sales space, cellar, stock, interactive gallery, reading room and tasting area, the bar is at once commercial and personal. Most importantly, it evokes sensory perceptions related to wine.
