NEW EXTERIOR DESIGN AT AROMA ESPRESSO BAR IN BETHESDA (PHOTOS)
Aroma Espresso Bar has freshened up its exterior patio area, with a new design concept. The transformation of Westfield Montgomery Mall's exterior is an interesting development. Previously, it has been a quintessential mall design (and there's nothing wrong with that, as I'm a big fan of American indoor mall architecture), with unique entrances for the anchor department stores. But newer additions such The Cheesecake Factory and Bobby's Burger Palace - not to mention the massive new Arclight Cinemas/dining terrace addition currently under construction - are bringing a greater variety of design themes, and branding, to the outdoor facades of the mall.
