A venue full of warmth but devoid of pretension was our goal, whilst providing all the amenities you’d expect of a sports bar servicing a variety of patrons. We also wanted to strike the right balance between elegance and comfort. The solution? Creatively combine ambient lighting with simple materials. Thoughtful planning was key to reinvent an outdated Sports Bar and to ensure the new design could accommodate a variety of offerings.
Strong design emphasis was placed on the brand new central bar, featuring a handmade copper bar top and a rendered polished concrete bar front — complete with custom metal work. The central bar became the ‘hero’ of the space and set the tone for the remaining aesthetic, along with establishing a consistent material palette to be used throughout. Bold lighting, textural surfaces and layered screening elements work together to define the spaces, with touches of leather, custom-designed carpet, joinery and greenery to add a soft touch.
