Of course tastes differ and it is for sure muted. I guess I understand what you are saying, but then why try to have a theme at all, elegant but then having staff cosplay? Its sort of putting one foot in one foot out, and doing neither really well, but as you say maybe in person its pulled off better.Sorry but that just looks gaudy to me. Not my style at all. I much prefer muted and I think the TOTWL hits that much better. It isn't supposed to be designed for kids, but more for adults the way it's being pitched. Can kids go there? Sure, but I just don't believe that is the target audience for it. So we'll just have to agree to disagree on this.
And you've seen chandeliers in a Holiday Inn that look like the one there? I've stayed in a bunch of them over the years, and not one was ever as fancy as that.
BTW that place I posted is strictly a bar so no kids going in there.
I have seen chandeliers similar; I would say this one here is even more interesting.
