Cocktail bar Peaches is on the second store of a three-level hospitality project on Swanston Street in Melbourne, Australia. Upon entering the space one is immediately immersed in an alternative Pierce Widera-designed peachuniverse: suspended circular pendants are a representation of ripe peaches hanging from the pink ceiling and walls are also dipped in pale pastel peach.
Architecture practice Pierce Widera has created a playful space with elevated booths – upholstered in plush blush fabric – tables topped with terrazzo, pink and cream floor tiles that are laid in an asymmetrical pattern.
The only other color comes from chartreuse-hued velvet stools, an underlit green-veined onyx bar top, and philodendron leaves in vases on the tables. A mirror ball over the bar reflects rays of pink light.
A pink staircase leads up to the Peaches rooftop and is literally putting the cocktail umbrella in your drink. The color palette screams ‘fun’ with pastel blue walls, a cocktail bar clad in white curved tiles, accented by blue grout and white furniture with umbrellas on timber decking.
