Highlights:
Custom designed back bar and ceiling feature

DPL advised on both the interior design and lighting design for this lively bar in the heart of Belfast. The paired-back style expresses the wood and tile finishes evoking a public house of the 'rip-roaring' 1930s.

The bespoke back bar feature depicts monuments in Belfast, etched into mirror. Edge lit with colour changing LEDs, the back bar mirror changes from white during the day, to dynamic colours in the evening.

Custom designed ceiling lights hark back to deco glass features of this era. A matching skylight introduced over the bar comprises stained glass elements to reflect the original floor tiles. Back lit with LED striplights, giving the impression of a Victorian skylight.

This bold interior defines confident masculinity, yet is softened by carefully considered lighting, and period detailing.
