The Creative Group were engaged by a company that was well established in the hospitality industry. With Multiple existing businesses, the group took on the lease with the intent on re-branding & re-fitting the entire space to make it more appealing and accessible for the local demographic.
The eclectic & chaotic monkey inspired interior was a creative first for The Creative Group team. Every interior component was sourced second hand and selectively placed together and retrofitted to achieve the aged and eclectic scheme as conceptualised by the client. The existing site had limited street appeal with the façade being pushed back into The Palms Arena and hidden from the public.
The Creative Group put together a concept that extended the shop front for greater impact from a visual perspective and enclosed the extension to increase the footprint and allowed greater usable space throughout the seasons. The bar was bought forward to the shopfront to allow visibility from the exterior, with the back bar being partially visible from the rear and other tenancies, creating visual interest. A mix of seating arrangements, from banquette & booth seating, standalone chesterfield couches, low dining table and high leaners catered to a variety of customers requirements.
