We teamed up with &Smith and friends to create this year's theme of POP.

Awards ceremony

Designed by &Smith, this edition of the Awards ceremony is called ‘POP’. With a different theme every year, the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards ceremony is a unique event strongly focused on innovation, design and performance.

  • King's Cross, London
  • 3rd October 2019
  • Dress code: smart / casual (black and white)

This year’s event will be hosted by Harry McKinley and be attended by over 600 of the most influential architects, designers, lighting designers, and restaurant & bar operators involved in the creation of amazing food and beverage spaces.

Shortlisted plaque

A mirrored Shortlisted Plaque, designed by &Smith and manufactured by Lasercut Works will offer each shortlisted recipient the opportunity to ‘Become Pop’, the surface reflecting back through the striking graphic pattern that will be a key feature of this year’s event.

This year's shortlist features 329 entries from 276 projects in 43 different categories from the UK and all over the world.
