The Space

Designed with a “grit meets glamor” aesthetic as inspiration, the DineAmic team curated the space to artfully juxtapose relaxed urban style with elegant and ornate accents. The 3,000 square-foot interior brings together elements like a patinaed zinc bar top with green crystal chandeliers hanging overhead. Black and white print wallpaper on one side of the room is set adjacent to glimmering metallic wallpaper on the other side. Installed above the main entryway is a myriad of colorful liquor bottles which will let sunlight in with a kaleidoscope effect reflecting into the space. A variety of bright bohemian florals adorn the restaurant and harmoniously blend with a custom modern wall of LED windows that backlight a banquette of tables.
