Like an urban deconstruction of a saloon on Thessaloniki’s Mitropoleos street, Cheval is a drinking, dining, singing horse which continues to be fresh and to enjoy the thriving popularity of a novelty. It all starts with a horse whose mouth and nose conspicuously look like a martini glass.

Pushing the door into Cheval, it is rather easy to pretend that you’ve left some post-modern version of a horse outside, in the unvarying tension of the city, and can now insulate yourself from its mix of equal triviality and anxiety. The big window out to the street lets lots of light into the two-level space, where chevron patterns dominate.

Their dominance can be explicit as in the window’s metalwork, or implicit, as in the lighting fixtures; the ceiling itself with its sculpted layer standing undecided between the lightness of elevation and the threat of protrusion; the tables’ edges; the orientation of objects in the space; the mere texture of its materials. Yes, Cheval does have -and love- its angles.
