An old warehouse turned retail/office space was completely gutted for its transformation into an elevated yet comfortable community beer hall. Nolita Hall’s modern interior harmoniously merges with newly exposed original redwood framing and concrete walls. Featuring 12’ and 13’ quad-fold doors and a 60' skylight that cascades into a 15' counter-weighted window, the interior is brightened with natural light throughout the day. The multifaceted space features a fireplace lounge, a recreational and game-viewing zone, and a kitchen-width window providing a view to its activities. Segmented dining areas offer long rows of communal tables flanked with marble accents, standard booth seating for six, and mega-booth seating for parties of 6-10. While each section contains its own subtle scheme, select shared elements are carried over from the neighboring section, creating a distinct wave of consistency throughout the space.
