Country artisans directed the making of this rustic bar from reclaimed wood found just 12 miles from the restaurant site. Service friendly fittings including ceiling mounted shelving and signage juxtapose rustic charm with design elements for speedy and efficient service by the staff. Creating an L-shaped bar encourages the conversation to flow allowing guests to face each other without interrupting the busy ‘mixologist’. The “L” shape divides the bar service area from the restaurant seating area.
