Ampersand Chicago

Ampersand Chicago Wine Bar

Our Green Lantern Kunsthall (art bar) project led us to a chef looking to open the place of his dreams: a neighborhood wine bar. He came to us with a vision of creating a place that feels like home; A place that is comfortable, easy-going and filled with great conversation.

We looked to foster community by organizing the space into a series of rooms within the room: a bar, common table and lounge. Woods warm the space; a high mirror expands the view; a distressed wood floor keeps things casual; dark green leather booths give a nod to classic Chicago bars and lounges.
