Channeling what Andres Escobar describes as “casual industrial,” the environment features understated references to Asia alongside vintage industrial details. The ambiance and subdued lighting evoke an almost mysterious background, bolstered by 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood bar surface and refrigeration and standalone tabletops composed of wood from one of Canada’s oldest bowling alleys.

Other unique details include cacao wood steps that lead up to a double height space in which the gallery kitchen is located and where chefs prepare sharing plates underneath floating kegs of sake. Completely translucent and lit by two fixtures inspired by headlights, the gallery kitchen acts as the focal point.
