We can say so.

Therefore beer-restaurant is pretty complicated term, however, i just copied it's original title.
"Tauro Ragas" definitely was something new. First, beer and only beer. It came from Brewery House nearby. Beer in LT is very good. Plus, it was a really large place (about 450 place...). Second, special foods with beer. Third, assume we build T.R. right now... now, we could consider it as a hight-quality restaurant. This means, it's interior, design - everything, including menu - was done according the best rules. In fact, it was a normal practice for architects to cooperate with artists (glass, wood (i.e. panno), steel, ceramics etc.) when they were designing interior.

At first, this building was erected to serve as a pavilon. But the building structure was good enough and it gained enormous popularity. It still stands, but, sadly, it's glorious times have gone forever. Investors are keeping eyes on it, but...

A lot of great examples on this page! The one in Scotland and the Health Center in Hawaii are fantastic.

What happened to the one in Valencia? They covered the gaps? It looked better before.

The Roger Stevens building is great. Those cylindrical decorations(?) make the building more unique.
