Bar transformation brings sexy back

Bar transformation is a real tide-turner. One premises, endless potential. All you need is creative vision, smart strategy and inspired execution. Depend on Design Clarity for all this and more. La Bodeguita del Medio, now rebranded The Cuban Place, did and the results are astounding.

Take a 650 sqm heritage listed bar and restaurant space on York Street, Sydney. What a perfect canvas for breathtaking bar transformation. One that brings the splendor, liveliness and culture of Cuban street bars right to the heart of metropolitan Sydney.  

This inspired bar transformation by Design Clarity has channeled 1950s heyday Cuba into every nook and cranny of the stunning Sydney premises. Bright turquoise timber paneled ceilings look down colourfully on La Bodeguita del Medio patrons. Antique ceiling fans and intimate pendant light fittings complement rustic exposed brickwork, Cuban wood paneled window shutters and eye-catching rum barrel displays.

Bar transformation leaves no detail to chance. La Bodeguita del Medio offers a host of choices from high-backed studded brown leather booths, square wooden tables with matching carved-backed chairs and al fresco options featuring deep wicker tub chairs.

What bar design worth its salt would neglect the iconic Cuban cigar from La Bodeguita del Medio? Certainly not a bar transformation being carried out by Design Clarity. That is why La Bodeguita del Medio features its own external luxury cigar lounge where low-lying cigar smoke hangs in the air taking a sensory trip down memory lane 1950s Cuban style to new heights. Couple that with personalised rum lockers and the Cuban spirit has never seemed more alive.

Downstairs, old-world Cuba wraps its warm splendid arms around patrons in an even closer embrace. Live music sets the scene while patrons themselves are asked to leave their handwritten thoughts alongside striking hand painted murals.

The Sydney premise is essentially a commercial space. So effecting a bar transformation of this scale took a great investment of time, skill and inspiration. Design Clarity worked closely with the site owners and managers, ensuring a seamless authentic fusion of traditional old-world Cuba with relaxed modern Sydney nightlife.

The Cuban Place bar transformation is an experiential treat that brings patrons back time and again. If you are considering bar transformation for your own premises, speak to the proven experts. Speak to Design Clarity.
