    Find out how LED bar lighting has helped SomePlace Else to become a top Warsaw nightspot.

    Customer Challenge

    SomePlace Else is a nightlife location with spirit. This delightful bar and restaurant combines architecture and atmosphere from different eras including jazz and 1950’s rock ‘n roll. How could bar lighting contribute to the diner experience?

    The right lighting

    The restaurant’s eye-catching exterior and distinct décor provided many opportunities for delighting guests. In order to turn architect Jacek Jaskóła’s team vision into reality, LED lighting was chosen. Sharp general lighting was used to welcome guests, while dynamic bar lighting was used to create tasteful effects around seating areas. Outside, modern exterior lighting was used to bring the façade to life.


    To add some color to the restaurant, 300 iColor Flex LMX (now specified with Flex Compact gen3, RGB) luminaires were installed which display exciting light effects and animations, and can be varied for different seasons. In winter time, they can display warm, pastel colors and show the animations of a burning fire place. In summer, they can present a light show of flowing water, or ice sculptures bathed in cool crisp light.


    The bar area is the centrepiece of the installation. The glass at the top of the bar gleams in multiple colors, projecting an air of rock ‘n roll charm. To achieve this special effect, 117 iColor Cove QLX Powercore luminaires were used (now specified with PureStyle Compact Powercore, IntelliHue). The whole system is powered by a Philips Dynalite lighting control system. Its special touch screen panel enables users to select a pre-defined light scene or change individual settings in seconds.

    From the stunning glass exterior to the sleek and sexy bar lighting, SomePlace Else is delighting diners with its newly improved ambience.
