As restaurant interior designers in Sarasota, we love to create immersive experiences that bring success to our clients' establishments throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area and Gulf Coast of Florida. These are design concepts we developed for the addition of a destination bar and lounge at a local Italian cafe.

When an established, family-owned Italian restaurant in Sarasota came to us for a creative design concept for the potential expansion of their property to add a bar and lounge, we delivered with multiple design options and space plans.

Our concept options for the bar and lounge each convey a different mood for the space, and each reflects a different aspect of Italian art, architecture, or culture.
