Pleased To Meet You bar and restaurant by Collective Design, Newcastle – UK

January 10th, 2014 by retail design blog

On High Bridge Street, Newcastle was a derelict pub which had been abandoned for a number of years and was in a state of decline along with the rest of the street. Plans were drawn up to create a new and exciting concept of bar and restaurant. This Grade II listed building was transformed into a contemporary Gin, Draft bar and eatery. The transformation has regenerated the area and created excitement around it. Pleased To Meet You has already become a favorite with the people of Newcastle with its unique style and timeless design.

The design is made up of a number of textures, tones, shadows and light. Rustic original brick, rivet steel and rich hard wood floors are the foundations of the design. This paves the way for soft leathers, warm polished copper tones, gleaming surfaces of marble and raw exposed timbers brimming with character.
