Tommy Bahama store by Michael Neumann Architecture, New York City

September 19th, 2014 by retail design blog

An “urban resort” was the concept for Tommy Bahama’s Manhattan Island flagship in this landmarked building on Fifth Avenue. Materials that evoke an easy tropical lifestyle – “sandy” limestone floors, “driftwood” reclaimed oak, louvers of salvaged Coney Island boardwalk and whitewashed millwork – are employed with accents of blackened steel and tarnished brass. Custom designed lanterns, campaign style display fixtures and a 14-foot live edge wood table are featured elements.

The Marlin Bar features a row of specialty rum oak barrels against a white metal, back lit custom screen that suggests palm tree bark or fish scales. A tropical rainforest mural provides the backdrop for the intimate back room. The main bar room has walls of reclaimed oak boards, and louvers of salvaged Coney Island boardwalk. A monumental blackened steel and Ipe spiral stair leads to the Restaurant above.

The Restaurant – with wide plank board floors and weathered rafters – features a second bar and an open kitchen. A ribbed glass rail surrounds the opening to the atrium below, featuring custom lanterns.
