The design was inspired by the famous San Diego Gaslamp Quarter and features a complete interior renovation that caters to the young professional patronage of LoDo’s gathering places.

The building’s interior detailing and material palette—wood slats and stacked stone—update and elevate the original design structure to a contemporary level while respecting existing historic language. The new storefront façade, a pair of nine-foot high glass bi-fold doors, also preserves historic features while enlarging the tavern’s opening to allow patrons to enjoy warm breezes and to serve as a gateway to the buzz of night life on Market Street.
