Crafting an Industrial & Modern Restaurant

Just steps away from BC place in the heart of downtown Vancouver lies a newly transformed bar and restaurant, Bogart’s. It was recently renovated into an industrial yet modern design to reflect the Italian pub fare vibe. The overall  pub atmosphere was redesigned to appeal to both the local business lunch crowd and the lively sports fans.

Many locally sourced construction materials were used to create a warehouse feel and overall patina in the space, such as antique leather, reclaimed fir, and plywood. The feature of the restaurant is the large fir plywood back bar with bottle display, this highlights the bar’s selection of craft beers and classic Italian wines on tap. To add a personal touch to the space, a local artist applied a hand painted quote and chevron graphic to the wall. Throughout the restaurant, graphic porcelain tile flooring from Italy was used to reflect the Italian pub ambiance.

Inside Design Studio captured the essence of the restaurant’s concept and applied it to the overall space for an intimate  pub atmosphere. Whether it’s game day or a business lunch, we can find guests enjoying their tapas and refreshments at this successfully transformed pub.
