The whimsical refurbishment of this iconic Carlton watering hole was designed by Melbourne interior designers Hot Black. Behind the heritage facade, the 6000sqm venue was brought back to life through a considered and colourful approach that gives out all the deco feels.

Extensive fabrication and fit-out by the Mood team included:

  • Black leather banquette seat and black laminate planter box, featuring a 70mm birch plywood exposed edge. Black timber dowel legs are flush-sleeved with a gold powder-coated sleeve
  • Pink leather banquette seat featuring a rolled steel tube frame as support for the seat back and a curved planter box mounted at the rear, hand laminated with maple-look laminate. Black timber dowel legs are flush-sleeved with a gold powder coated sleeve
  • Steel and leather ground-floor bar facade with steel fins mounted over pink leather panels
  • Exterior coffee hub with custom folded steel panels reminiscent of a converted shipping container, with a steel plate countertop and a powder-coated perforated mesh screen above
  • First-floor bar featuring a curved bar top in black laminate over panels of blue leather and steel fins
  • Suspended steel and perforated mesh bar shelving
  • Elegant elliptical screen with powder-coated steel frames and black laminate board
