Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar, a retro-inspired restaurant designed by New York based firm - AvroKO Hospitality Group, evokes a touch of masculine craftsmanship and the nostalgic feel of a 1960s uptown Manhattan residential aesthetic that celebrates the art of wood and metal craftsmanship in its art and detail.
Being the first restaurant the group has designed in the Philippines, AvroKO gave the Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar its own identity as a dining destination that has a timeless and inviting appeal.
“Careful attention was paid to bespoke details such as the whimsical caliper-inspired light feature and vintage metal and wood carving tool display at the entry to the restaurant. The restaurant and bar feature ebony-stained wood walls and hand applied ecru Venetian plaster, black and white marble with wood inset flooring, antique brass trim details, and intricate divider screens that create intimate zones within the space.”
Framed by an arresting entryway with a decorative light fixture composed of 100 individually-crafted and layered metal calipers shaped like bull horns, the energy is palpable as soon as one steps into the restaurant.
The interiors then lead to the bar area, boasting details of a mid-century New Yorker residence featuring an extensive selection of spirits and libations with over 90 brands of American whiskey, as well as Scottish, Japanese and Taiwanese whisky, 30 brands of gin, 12 signature cocktails, including house-aged barrels of house-mixed boulevardier and Martinez, 22 brands of rum, 18 brands of tequila and mezcal, as well as selected brandy, wine, and beer.
With its vibrant design aesthetic, the bar gives off a gritty yet chic feel at the same time.
The main dining room features four different sections which can seat up to 92 guests at a time. The chevron-patterned Carrera and Black Marquina marble flooring extends at the center; a focal point in the restaurant interiors.
A semi private dining room which can seat eight guests is also available for intimate gatherings.
Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar – a Steakhouse like no other
"When designing Raging Bull Chophouse and Bar, we chanelled the original retro-classic steakhouse, but infused it with mid-century residential Manhattan style and modern luxury."
- William Harris, AvroKO principal
