The Cigar Lounge at Compass Bar has a cave like quality, with walls and ceilings painted in a matt charcoal blue. Tan leather chairs and walnut cabinetry, and warm oak floors balance the tone. Decorative ceiling panels and wall mouldings cast subtle shadows, and add a sense of decorum.
A central island bar in fluted stainless steel and brass characterises the Compass Cafe interior. The backdrop features dark stained wood and metallic stucco, silhouette of black shelving, mirroring the bar proportions. The program shifts between a Western Cafe atmosphere in daytime, and an intimate cocktail bar setting after dark.
The design intent for the Curator Shop and Delicatessen is to give the feeling of a living room, where the deli & bar give way to a central seating area, denoted by a marble floor tapestry. Walnut Wainscoting panels frame the room. The colour palate is muted, warm and earth tones take precedent.
