Creating an intimate and lively gathering space from a strip mall video rental store was the primary challenge with this project. In a limited footprint, we created ample room for brewing operations, storage, restrooms, and office, while providing a welcoming seating area for approximately 75 people. For this suburban location, the owners desired a "neighborhood bar" feel, which led us to the use of familiar reclaimed woods, comfortable lighting, and industrial-style finishes. We created a more vibrant space than your ordinary bar through the bold use of colors in harmony with the company branding. The surprising result is an inviting space in an unexpected location, which has already become a neighborhood favorite.
