Case Study: Brass Monkey
January 29, 2014
One of the most popular watering holes in NYC, Brass Monkey was opened way back in 2004 to be the unpretentious answer to New York’s onslaught of the scene - glitzy clubs and dress to impress establishments that had started popping up everywhere and becoming a dime a dozen. A warm and welcoming atmosphere with great food and drinks, the management team knew they needed an aesthetic to match the mood - approachable that encouraged hanging out for a long period of time. What they came up with was this amazing loft-like space enhanced with artisan t in. The space is raw, like the energy.
