The bar with the ultimate view


Would you dine or drink there?

It’s Friday afternoon, so you’ll soon be off to a bar somewhere. But we’ll wager your tavern won’t look anything like this one.

 

If you love a bar with a view, this concept for a watering hole in Mexico might be for you - but it could have you shaking into your margaritas if you don’t like heights.

 

 

Located in the north western Mexican state of Chihuahua, the Copper Canyon Cocktail Bar is a minimalist concrete structure perched hundreds of feet above Copper Canyon.

 

Overlooking the second-tallest waterfall in the country, Basaseachic Falls, the proposed establishment would be built into a cliff face, and feature a restaurant and bar on the first floor, plus a lounge space and observation deck upstairs. In the centre would be a giant glass floor.

 

 

Those adventurous enough could rock climb up to the restaurant, have a meal and drink, take a dip in the swimming pool, and then abseil back down.

 

It may or may not get off the ground, but the proposal by Tall Arquitectos is worth dreaming about.
