The Blackbird Cafe, Minneapolis, MN  |  View Gallery »

Client: Gail and Chris Stevens

This casual neighborhood restaurant is the second location designed for this client after a fire destroyed the first location. The new, larger restaurant includes cherry booths with slate topped tables, copper topped bar with tiled backbar and a view to the activity in the kitchen. The patina of old wood floors and slightly battered plaster walls contrasts with the new finishes. Light fixtures and the owners antler collection was salvaged from the fire. The owners added vintage elements of oversized doors, salvaged globe fixtures and 40's table lights.
