Fifth Street Bar
West Fifth Street, Cincinnati, OhioRestaurant/Bar Renovation
2010 (projected completion)
Project Team: Michael Uhlenhake, Brian Rockel
For the vacant second floor of an existing bar, the client wanted to use the space as a counterpoint to the live music venue on the first floor, creating a place suitable for daytime dining as well as evening lounging. The overall atmosphere evokes the style of pin-up posters from the 40s and 50s but with a modern interpretation. The new plan includes a kitchen, bar, two private lounges, a central dancing/lounge area and two rows of built-in banquette seating and tables along the side walls.
