A canal side cocktail bar and restaurant in The Mailbox, inspired by industrial heritage and designed as a social space for sharing

A bright and flexible layout with quirky design elements that are all about bringing people together

The Need

Our job was to turn an empty shell of vast space into an independent bar and restaurant, that would stand out from the array of appealing options on offer at the Mailbox.
There were no original features to work with so we had to start from scratch and create authentic character and a layout that would offer something new.

The Solution

Local industrial heritage was our inspiration, creating a theme with materials and design details that would reflect the past and inject a cool independent character throughout.
The scheme was completed with a worn in look and natural elements to make visitors feel at ease, and the layout was designed to encourage people to share. This was done using different types of seating areas to suit any size group, from a large communal table to booth seating of varying heights.
We felt the space had to have a real buzz as soon as you walked in, so while more relaxed areas were created for casual dining and cocktails with friends, we counteracted this with a dramatic open kitchen and chefs table to create impact and a unique feel.
A balance was found that made Gas Street Social both stylish and convivial, to appeal to serious foodies and groups of friends popping in for a drink. We worked to entertain both with design details they’d all remember.
