Our Bala Baya featured as No.1 in Stylist ”Dream designs: step inside Britain’s most striking bars and restaurants.”
Nestled under a railway bridge at Union Yard Arches, you’ll find Bala Baya, a stylish restaurant designed by Afroditi Krassa that captures the energetic, sun-soaked climate of Tel Aviv. Look out for mosaic tiling, Israeli palm fronds and pops of burnt orange which scatter beneath the aluminium and exposed-brick dome. Carefully arranged lighting and traditional breeze blocks imported from Tel Aviv are used to recreate the city’s dusk-lit shapes and dancing shadows, which form as the sun goes down over the glass-fronted entrance.
