The heights alone will make you dizzy at this bar. Mexico-based Tall Arquitectos has released a design concept for Copper Canyon Cocktail Bar that would provide stellar views of the canyon and an incredible waterfall.

Situated on a cliff face, the cocktail bar and restaurant design promises customers an amazing perspective for enjoying the canyon’s beauty in all directions, including straight down - thanks to a glass floor. Although there are no constructions plans in place yet, the design alone is enough to get us thinking about spending an afternoon in the sun, cocktail in hand, soaking in the views.

The two-level building is intended to house a cocktail bar as well as a lounge space with couches and a pool. The first level will contain the bar, with tables positioned around the perimeter of an amazing glass-tiled floor. Because of the positioning of the building, offset from the cliff face, the clear flooring provides an incredible, if almost heart-stopping, view down the side of the cliff beneath and into the valley. From their high vantage point, diners can also sneak a peek of Basaseachic Falls, the second highest waterfall in Mexico.

A short staircase from the bar area leads into the lounge area which, although it doesn’t offer the same stunning see-through floor as the cocktail bar, is just as amazing with a panoramic vista from the observation deck. Tables and couches make the space more comfortable than the downstairs bar, and a swimming pool offers guests another way to relax.

Tall Arquitectos is a three-man team comprised of Lazaro Gutierrez Cortina Sainz, Leonardo Montero Tello and Sebastian Gutierrez Cortina Sainz. Together, they create minimalist structures that frequently feature bold geometry, sharp angles, and enormous scale.
