Some of your favorite labels now even operate and house their very own cafés, restaurants, and bars. Whether you love visiting pretty places or you're on the lookout for design ideas, these places are brimming with inspiration:

To date, the Armani group has 18 restaurants and cafés in locations such as New York, Chile, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Italy, Cannes, Munich, and Paris. The fashion house operates under the names Armani / Ristorante, Emporio Armani Caffé, Armani/Aqua, Armani/Privé, and Armani/Café. Much like his designs, Armani’s restaurants offer "delightfully tasty haute cuisine recipes with traditional Italian and modern twist on classics.”

The retro-pastel haven is outfitted with a Zissou-themed pinball machine and serves pastries, paninis, tartines, and cocktails.

For about 1,100 yen, you’ll get Le Café’s signature coffee with a pair of exquisite Birkin-shaped chocolates.
