The former parking lot at the Place des Arts in Montreal, has been transformed into a cool urban lounge and event space: Salon Urbain by Sid Lee Architecture and Ædifica. Adjacent to a new concert hall, the space is meant to be a meeting place pre- and post-concert or exhibit. The central focal point of the space, under the spectacular ceiling, is the bar shaped as a sound wave in physical form. The goal of the architects was to create a space that would continue the magical feeling that comes with attending a concert.

Pretty darn cool.
