Above Board back bar provides an intimate setting for late-night cocktails. Accessed via a discreet framed portal. Crisp lines and sharp angles permeate throughout with perimeter walls sliced to conceal a singular linear light engulfing the space – an artificial horizon of light. An ambience adjusted only through light. The existing side corridor wall angled to unfold and reveal a tear shaped solid wood communal table with scalloped edge. Leather lined circular booths hug the opposing wall, framed by a back wall appearing to float as the imaginary horizon cuts through it. Allowing a sliver of horizontal light to penetrate with glimpse views of the darkness beyond. Sensual, tactile and muted, aromas of leather, ironbark and cork permeate the air.
