This upscale brasserie’s design embodies a fusion of historical charm and contemporary allure. Housed within a 105-year-old Beaux Arts style building in a vibrant Downtown district, the space underwent a transformation to preserve its architecture while infusing it within a modern aesthetic.

Embracing the ethos of a revered, storied figure, the design evokes an Old World ambiance woven with sleek, modern elements. Sourced artifacts and objects create a rich narrative within the restaurant.

The restaurant embraces a rich color palette inspired by its signature cocktail namesake, reflecting the hues of ruby port, cloves and orange, making the space a moody yet inviting atmosphere.

Materials such as white oak, unlacquered brass, Zellige tile, and leather were thoughtfully integrated, showcasing a blend of living finishes that will gracefully age over time. Existing features like glazed brick columns underwent a transformative Kintsugi treatment, honoring their imperfections and history. Blackened steel elements and modern details harmonize with historical finishes, blurring the lines between old and new.
