Originally Bullwinkle’s, the 10,000 square foot building sat vacant for years. The client requested the property reflect the vivid colors of Cuba with the beautiful patterns of Mexico. Our team was thrilled with the opportunity to create such a unique and extraordinary dining experience. The exterior of the property needed a unmistakable presence. Existing faux rocks were removed, and our team designed a large proportional entry tower finished with transparent multicolored glass. The entire interior was gutted and various levels were incorporated in order to subdivide the large space. Taking advantage of those multiple levels, enjoyable seating options of 12’ tall colorful egg-shaped booths, pub tables built around palm trees and a surprising mix of fun seating arrangements give a new experience from every area in the space. The color palette was solely focused on Cuban artist, Dixie Miguez. Large murals of his bold and colorful paintings are placed around the restaurant. The bar boasts a dramatic large curved chrome canopy and “back lit” glass bar back that rotate colors. The restaurant unexpectedly transforms into a nightclub on weekends, where various lighting effects sync with the music, providing a true dining and entertaining experience.
