This friendly and rustic New York-style loft bar conjures the feeling and look of the city's back alleys instead of the refined coastal bar in Manly, Australia, which is where Donny's Bar is located.

Calling the beachside suburb home, Donny's Bar was designed by Sydney studio Luchetti Krelle using a whole lot of mesh wire, exposed brick and wood panels, worn leather chairs, a network of pipes and dark, atmospheric lighting.

Using recycled materials like chain-link fencing to make up the majority of the palette, this intimate New York style loft bar serves Asian-style tapas and dumplings.

"The rustic quality of the timber contrasts with a shiny copper rectified top and perfectly mitred timber lining boards weaving diagonally across the lower ceiling and walls," says the design team at Luchetti Krelle.
