James Richardson at Woody. P


Woody.P is not a chirpy, bearded radio host in a cap as Google Images might have you believe, but a cool-and-casual establishment recently opened on Flinders Lane.

It has a contemporary feel in a modern and bespoke space, forgoing any notion of the coldness of modernity. Simple, refined textures were the order of the day, with exposed brick walls, polished timber floors, textured glass, feature tile work, and Carrara marble bartops. There are plenty of custom touches, with Paul Grummisch of Please Please Please Design custom designing all the lighting other than the leather-shaded Hide pendants in the front section.

Complementing the Hide’s shades are leather joinery handles supplied by Made Measure, and local designer Steve Edwards’ stools and outdoor chairs. Branding touches like the neon signage and mosaic Woody.P doormat tie the whole concept together. There’s also a sizable outdoor area with bluestone floors and plenty of greenery.
