Remodeling a Classic

Changing a classic bar into a sleek & modern bar while keeping the integrity of the classic space – A change such as this poses many challenges. Having recently remodeled CI Shenanigans on Ruston Way in Tacoma, WA. this classic ‘good ‘ol boys’ bar had stood the test of time for many years, but the owner wanted something fresh and new to draw in a younger crowd. While we retained many of the existing design elements of the space, we were able to incorporate these elements and transform it into a sleek and modern atmosphere.

The new and more modern bar now has back lit glass columns & glowing frosted resin shelving that provide the appearance of liquor bottles suspended or floating off the wall. Barstools were replaced with a comfortable modern seat and the bar top was brightened up with a clean white granite top with a hard edge to continue the modern feel.  New floor tile in addition to the updated lighting changed the space in order to create an appeal to cater to a younger generation, but yet leave elements of the classic feel that the restaurant is known for.
