Pub Theme – It’s the Little Things
We had great fun creating a Pub Theme for The Hudson Rooms Gastropub.
When we first visited the unit it was a tall raw space which looked almost like a New York loft. The idea of
creating a New York warehouse/loft/factory space developed from this first impression. We played with the
idea of layering in a subtle theme based on The Garment District (an area on the lower west side of Manhattan
which caters for the clothing industry) which would enhance and add interest to the look of an industrial style
factory space. (The name came from The Garment District which overlooks the Hudson River……..)Areas are
separated with large transparent metal and mesh units featuring displays of mannequins and spools both items
relating to the garment industry. The Sewing Room with its button wallpaper, the Stock Room with rows of
sewing machines on display and the factory floor where mannequins and spools are visible are all little details
which add to the overall theme. We even made the wash hand basin stands out of singer sewing machine bases.
The picture shows the toilet door sign made from yard sticks sourced from New York.
