Standard Bottle Shop Interior Architecture

Interior Architecture- Small Scale (<5,000 sf)

Project Narrative

Standard Bottle Shop is a unique take within the expansive bar scene in Cincinnati. The space encompasses both a full service bar as well as a retail store, featuring a curated selection of beer and wine. Custom millwork displays divide the space into multiple zones, each with it’s own function and feel within the space, including bar tables, a small lounge grouping, cozy 2 person booths, and a large communal table offering a variety of experiences for patrons. Starting with a blank slate in a new build in OTR, our design team didn’t inherit the history or character of most Cincinnati bars and storefronts. Therefore, we leaned into a brighter, more contemporary aesthetic that creates a clean backdrop for product as the “artwork” to be displayed. Drawing inspiration from Scandinavian design, we opted for white oak millwork and a monochromatic milky-white bar. Blue accents in the furnishings and a focal copper menu board add interest with subtle contrast. The end result is a unique bar atmosphere that feels welcoming during the day as well as night.
