Their concept was driven by the ideas of reveal and conceal and their connection with Speakeasy and what it stands for.
Some interesting design elements include new folding metal screen gates, custom chandeliers and matching mirror frames, recycled library ladders used for wine display and graffiti art on the outside walls.
The design of the motif for the folding metal screen gates was derived from the patterns found in some of the original iron lacework on the building. All of the feature lighting and mirror frames were custom designed and made by Studio Mecano specifically for the space. The library ladders, found in the bar and function room, were salvaged from Borders on Chapel Street during their liquidation sale and were recycled and modified to be used with the wine shelf displays, paying homage to Borders which for over a decade had been part of the Chapel St landscape.
