Joben Bistro is a deviant looking but extremely beautiful pub located in the second most populous city in Romania, Cluj-Napoca. The sci-fi universe of Jules Vernes served as an inspiration for creating this non-traditional design and matching style that serves as an entrance in the supernatural world of fiction. A visit there is like a stepping into a time capsule that will take you on a strange journey back in time.
The people form 6-th Sense (the Romanian design studio responsible for this creation) took the job pretty seriously and made sure every little detail is distinct and different from what we are used to seeing. Its industrial but cozy looking, edgy and avant-garde in the same time. One part historic factory and one part futuristic wasteland. Every object is collected with care and distributed with playfulness in a setting of lights and decor.
They are 3 different areas (rooms), each with its special flair. The first one was visualized as a vintage ar2rk gallery with different photographs hanging on the walls. The second one (the bar area) is largely dominated by eccentric green light installation and concrete/brick walls. The third sections has more of a showroom feel mainly decorated with objects of different varieties. When they were putting it all together they made sure that it has a strong intimacy feeling intensified by the dark colored walls and the adjustable lights.
When in Cluj and thirsty for beer – Joben Bistro Pub is definitely the place to go!
