a steel-and-chrome affair


Senior Member
"It was late Friday night, and we had found ourselves in a kind of underground bar, a steel-and-chrome affair that hummed and thumped with strobe lights and R&B, and a mindless bass line throbbing like a swollen vein."
(The Foreigner, Francie Lin)

What is "a steel-and-chrome affair"? Does it refer to the interior and furnishings?

    Hello guys! Actually, I think the definitions given so far were great, but I have another question. Please, take a look at this sentence:

    "The café was a chrome affair aboe a car wash on the beltway."

    I've searched everywhere, but I couldn't seem to find a suitable translation (to Portuguese) or even a definition.

    I would greatly appreciate if anyone could help me here.
