San Francisco, CA

Located just two blocks from Union Square, this new bar provides a late-night gathering spot for the after dinner crowd. Although under 1,200 sf, the layout provides both “public” spaces for meeting people and several intimate nooks for conversation. The interior finishes, a blend of refined and rustic, were inspired by the rough-hewn brick walls and concrete columns that were discovered under layers of sheetrock. To accompany those elements we provided a reclaimed walnut bar top, steel columns and concrete fireplaces. These are complemented and contrasted with modern light fixtures, soft furnishings and a new contemporary storefront.
