If you’re a fan of places like The Hard Rock Cafe — in other words, corny restaurants — you might be happy about this: Condé Nast is opening more magazine themed restaurants by next year. According to WWD, there will be a Vogue Cafe in Kiev and a GQ Bar in Istanbul. The company already has a pair of the establishments in Moscow, and plans to add more in countries where Condé Nast magazine’s aren’t sold.
“Vogue and GQ stand for the best in taste, discernment and pleasurable living,” said Jonathan Newhouse, Chairman of Condé Nast International. “Nothing could be more natural than to expand these brands into restaurants where our readers and digital users can experience these brands in a new and exciting form.”
