5 funky restaurant interiors you have to see

Everyone loves to enjoy their meals on the patio, and we are counting down the days until we can soak up the sun during lunch, but where can we go for good eats in the meantime?

These are five cool restaurants that you need to eat INSIDE of!

BNA Brewing Co.

High beam ceilings, golden lighting and rustic accents, BNA is a perfect spot to grab a drink after work or a hearty meal.

With a wide open, yet cozy eating area complete with comfy couches and booths downstairs, and a bright, expansive top floor, the restaurant/brew pub is ready and willing to welcome you with open arms.

They have bocce ball and shuffleboard too, so you won't even be thinking of hanging around outside after being here for a short while.

Red Robin

With tasty food worth drooling over and an interior that brings you back to the 50’s, it is no doubt that Red Robin makes the list of restaurants you need to visit for its unique interior design.

Upon walking in, you'll notice a large plane hanging from the ceiling, old movie posters and pops of red all adding to the old diner feel. This atmosphere, along with delicious comfort food and classic shakes, allows you to enjoy an amazing eating-out experience.

Naked Cafe

From the checkered flooring to larger than life murals of animals on the walls, Naked Cafe knows what they are doing when it comes to having a unique and welcoming interior.

Cozy couches, a concession like ordering system and a graffiti wall for signatures only add to the cool atmosphere, while their 100% vegan and cruelty-free food keeps you there.

The Eldorado

If you can’t decide between fine dining or a casual place to eat a nice dinner, then the Eldorado is the place to go.

With a vintage feel, it allows you to either get all dressed up or stop in after a day of running around so you can fill your belly with their delicious cuisine. Not to mention, the gorgeous view of the lake from the large windows is breathtaking.

The Xchange

Tucked beside the Bean Scene on Dickson Avenue is The Xchange Tapas Bar. This spot is a smaller restaurant with a whole lot of character.

The contrast between the modern exposed air ducts and cement, against the warm wood grain and big, bright windows, keeps your eyes busy while you enjoy tasty tapas.
