Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics. Sophisticated Urban Bistro - was the design concept from the beginning of this project. The restaurant owner had specific ideas which we were able to build and install beautifully. Food is the universal language and brings people together which was the inspiration for this project to create an atmosphere that allows customers to feel comfortable as if they were at home. The custom bar is functional with multiple storage areas, puck lighting in the shelves, stainless steel countertops, and a hydraulic lift bar top making it easy to go in and out for the employees. The use of warm wood for the banquette seating stands out beautifully against the black shiplap. The glass panel partitions add elegance to space but still ensure a measure of privacy between the drink rail and seating. Handicap accessible bar seating is an added feature at the bar along with the installed foot rails.
