The unexplored and unexpected is now unveiled. Inspired and designed by Rocco Laudizio [slick+designusa] and Roman Sanchez, Mercer-one thirteen is a sophisticated urban forest that peaks lively conversation and is truly a one-of-a-kind visual experience. Tree bark, sleek wall coverings, bold natural graphics and the warmth of the enchanting fireplace wall create a welcoming gathering place.

This 6,000 square feet restaurant and lounge is separated into two distinct areas by a stunning glass encased fireplace creating an intimate and exclusive atmosphere. Earth inspired textures and color meld seamlessly to create this modern and sleek, nature-inspired space. A rich and earthy color palette enhanced with pops of mango yellow, featured on the custom built barstools, set a tone that invites guests to mix and mingle.

The three large and magnificent bars draw attention to the amazingly unique marble top that has a web of forest brown veins creating a spellbinding pattern. Below, the bar façade include alternating wood louver panels and antique mirrored glass that catch and reflect the light. Above the back bar are custom built acrylic boxes that illuminate the repeating bark pattern and highlight the bottles beautifully.

Rich two-tone wood planks line the ceiling and columns while the interior walls are dressed in linear ledger stone tile that sets the tone for this natural oasis. The columns themselves become featured highlights in the space. They each contain a LED backlit glass panels, illuminating the space in a unique way with abstract nature prints.
