Entry Description

Big Easy Winebar & Grill is a collaboration between Virserius Studio and the design team of professional golfer Ernie 'Big Easy' Els. For his restaurant, Virserius Studio drew design inspiration from Ernie Els and his vision of what his native South Africa represents to him. Together with his development team and Beyond Hospitality for food & beverage, the resulting concept is a very beautiful, friendly, and open atmosphere that ensures that everyone who visits will feel comfortable. Big Easy includes several unique spaces, all tied together by inviting rustic elements. The outdoor dining area includes a lower and upper terrace surrounded by a lush green wall that creates an intimate connection to the immediate surroundings. Indoors, the warmly pigmented floor screed, wood-beamed ceilings, metal lighting and handcrafted furniture come together in rich harmony with colors and textures are very earthy and distinctly South African.
