Located in the historic town of Ripponlea, the design intent behind the Ripponlea Food & Wine Bar was to create a classic, balanced disposition paired with an elegant and timeless charm.

The design was heavily influenced by the New York bar culture, which captures a sophistication and grace.

The bar made from solid timber in a black stain, diffuses warm light from below the table top to invite you to relax, pull up a stool and enjoy a fruity cocktail. Overhead metal pipework shelving with brass fittings allows you to select your choice of wine, and encourage you to engage with the bar staff who are willing to chat about their own wine suggestions.

The plush velvet emerald green booth seating calls you to sit down and be engulfed by its comfort, whilst enjoying wine, cocktails and the great food on offer. The richness of the emerald green intends to create a richness and pop, which offsets the otherwise intimate interior.

Reflecting more light into the space, the mirror and lighting feature with its brass fittings aim to give warmth and charm to this already character driven building.

It’s a versatile venue, which meets a dynamic elegance through design.
