Originally occupying multiple buildings with differing floor heights and a two foot thick bearing wall running through the existing space, the restaurant was uncomfortable, expensive and problematic to operate. With our renovation of the building, the exterior was transformed to include an iconic copper beer kettle over the entry intended to grab your attention from the train station across the street. Inside, the team used a mixture of painted paneling, multicolored glazed bricks, sculptured metal panels with rail motifs and plush leather booths to provide comfort and interest to patrons. With the riveted coffered ceiling and clusters of cog pendants with amber glass, we were able to create a consistent soft glow throughout the space. At the bar, accent lighting highlights the workings of a custom tap system and the menu board superstructure which intended to be reminiscent of train schedule boards. The new OTG has surpassed all sales projects.
