Inspired by the Irish folklore of Finn McCool and the traditional character of an Irish whisky house we created a loft style interior with a modern edge, integrating natural elements such as stone and timber trusses to add warmth and character.
The open layout of the main bar creates a welcoming feel and allows for maximum flexibility, with the timber booth seating and private vault room providing a more intimate dining experience. Custom stained glass windows and graphic street art murals give the space a modern feel while still tipping the hat to the classic Irish pub.
The Causeway bar relates to the main bar but has it’s own identity with exposed brick walls, timber moulding and plenty of Irish charm. We styled the bar with authentic memorabilia that Sean had shipped over from Ireland, as well as some special pieces hand-picked from local antique stores. The Causeway bar opens out onto a now activated laneway.
