  What these two lounge bars have in common are easy chairs where you relax in half-lying position and the feeling of being in someone's spacious living room.
  
  Such decorating style and food display remind of Far East, the trend followed by a large number of lounge bars. Buddha Bar created a fashion out of it, owing to it a great amount of its popularity. Such novelty could not pass stealthy in Paris, so Buddha Bar soon became a favorite jet-setters spot, putting all the efforts into winning the visitors over. Pretentiousness costed it popularity, so today it is avoided by the loungers who more gladly pick less formal Man Ray or classier Alcazar.
  
  Part of its atmosphere renders to these bars another peculiarity; CD compilations with characteristic songs. Compilations become the more compulsory part of the image but the advertising too. Anyone who wishes to catch a part of the lounge bar atmosphere simply buys its CD, and all those who weren't there are invited to join and experience the club atmosphere on the spot. Man Ray compilation is perfect for listening to it in an easy chair near the fountain. Mezzanine/Alcazar records its compilations live, so if you happened to be there, it is more likely you will see you'll end up on the CD cover photo gallery. Compilations are mixed by the famous DJs, who often perform on weekends, while week program is left to the younger ones for them to gain experience and reputation. Although it seems a bit weird that young DJs play in elite places, you figure out really fast that lounge bar isn't about mixing music, as it is the choice and sequence. DJs play is often accompanied by MC live performance, the person who casually sings and warms up the atmosphere.
  
  Lounge sounds are no enigma in Europe. Compilations have their loyal buyers... Kontrapunkt (Counterpoint) at the Aquarius club is dedicated to the modern chill-out rhythms, occasionally No.1 club at Nova Ves in Zagreb and some other programs. Their public would probably be critical mass who would gladly loosen up within the pleasures of this sobering and relaxing music, in an adequate environment. Moreover, several potential translations of the word “lounge”, ring the bell to all the pleasures you strive for after a stressful working day. Notion lounge depicts long easy chair, lazy or slow walk and at last, style of music for urban dreamers...
