Last week marked the opening of one of our biggest projects yet, Beatnik - the new sexy fusion restaurant at Chicago and Ashland in West Town. Bonhomme hospitality took on the space and transformed it into an exotic lounge decorated with historic lighting, millwork, and stunning accents. It's an absolute must spot for an elevated loungey cocktail and a bite from a (mouth-watering) world fusion menu.

Wayward took on the bar portion of the restaurant - we were honored to design and fabricate a 19ft bar with custom seam details, drink rails, overhanging tapered shelving, a foot rail, and custom designed detailed panels for the face of the bar. Brass, metal bending, hammering, and water jetting were the name of the game for this project. Our seam detail on the bar incorporated a close up from the perforated metal that sits within the shelving units above the bar. We have never seen or fabricated an entirely brass clad bar top but we took on the challenge.

This was definitely a "team work makes the dream work" project over at Wayward and we're so happy to have a staple moment in this new beautiful space.

Make sure to head on over and have a magic cocktail at Beatnik at the bar! (Check out the photos below).
