The Nelson Bar by Techne, Melbourne – Australia

December 9th, 2014 by retail design blog

This bar took inspiration from its bayside location in St Kilda and its main offering of rum. The clients brief was to create a laid back venue with a real ‘local pub’ feel. The fit-out took on a maritime, timeworn and rustic feel which is carried throughout the venue. Recycled timbers recovered from the Docklands were used for the bar that serves as the main feature, running centrally through the longitudinal space. Encouraging its patrons to sit on either side allowing them to chat directly to bar staff in an informal setting. Another feature includes a hand painted mural of a mythical sea creature ‘The Kracken’ by artist Dexter Rosengrave, adding another layer to the design.
