This tenant finish restaurant and bar for Martin City Brewing Company’s new space needed to maximize operational flow and flexibility for dining, a private event space and a conference room. This was a new location and demographic for MCBC, so it was imperative for the architect to create a cohesive design that established their brand identity and created an atmosphere for friends and families to gather, dine, and enjoy each other’s company. Although, upon our arrival, boxes were strewn throughout the dining room, the bar was bare and staff were testing recipes in the brand new kitchen. We walked into a space that was still technically under construction on shoot day. The contractor was installing fixtures in the bathroom, the sign guys were putting up giant window clings in every window, the liquor delivery had yet to be made. A few quick adjustments and my interior design assistant delegated MCBC staff to make the space come together. She kept tabs on them throughout the day while also making sure to stay one step ahead of me. The liquor was delivered just in time. All staff were on deck to pull the bar together before it's big shot. What you don't see off camera are all the boxes, tape and mess that was shuffled around to make each shot absolutely perfect. It takes a cohesive team to pull of this kind of project with so many variables thrown into the mix on the day of the shoot.
