Mexican drinks tavern in Alameda de Hércules. Seville. Spain

Three illuminated orange glass lattices on a black stucco background draw attention on the ground
floor of the corner between Barco Street and Alameda de Hércules. Through them you can glimpse
an interior with soft light and earthy colors, where tasty cocktails of Mexican origin are made, served
and tasted.
Mezcals, tequilas, fruits, spice jars and crystal glasses are integrated into a sober space with earthy
walls and ceilings, raw steel countertops and floor, and wooden bars. Five materials define the
functional and environmental elements of this small cocktail bar, giving the space a tactile quality
that completes the sensory experience of the cocktails.
The black steel sheet, in its color and protected by a transparent polyurethane varnish, forms the
floor, the fronts of the bars, the countertops and baseboards of the counterbar, which continues
from the interior to the façade to become the exterior bar. The carpentry and structure of the lattices
are solved with the same steel. Lime mortar with Sierra de Aracena clay is applied with irregular
and rough textures on the walls, ceiling and door of the toilet, contrasting with the flatness of the
steel and the two bars. These, made of solid iroko wood, welcome the client and clearly define the
horizontal service level (110 cm), emerging from the working level of the sheet metal countertops
(95 cm). The black stucco of the façade contrasts with the interior luminosity and appears again
inside the bathroom.
The amber-colored glass lattices with a frosted texture are highlighted by a sequence of vertical
LED-type luminaires, which, like old neon lights, are interspersed between the glass and sheet
metal sheets, causing the desired attraction from the outside.
