The Work:

Create a neighborhood bar that nods to nostalgia while looking towards many more decades of Surdyk’s success

The Scene: 

Lit, liquor-filled shelves lining a cozy space with a copper bar at its heart, with a roll-up glass garage door to create a symbiotic energy with the neighborhood

The Notables:

  • Brand, logo, and collateral by Shea
  • Custom wallcovering featuring ads and news pieces from the family business’ history
  • blue-tiled copper bar, use of vintage Surdyk’s signage and family heirlooms, custom lighting collaborations with local artisan
