Great Northern

When the Monarch Management Group (Micah Byrnes, Manny Alfrez, Chris Smith, and Tadd Cortell) decided to turn the former home of Mighty into San Francisco’s first cocktail bar / nightclub hybrid, we jumped at the chance to not only create a fantastic space, but also to partner with them on the project. Crew member Laura Stevenson took the helm, working closely with the owners to develop a comprehensive interior design look with multiple focal points and lots of details.

The aesthetic is slick, futuristic Art Deco style. From the dance floor to the bar, elaborate design work highlights each area. The monumental stained glass installation above the Daylight Bar features custom artwork by Alberto Ybarra. Reactive LED lighting, an aerial rig over the stage, a separate Goth Bar, and a massive video projection wall complete the look of this iconic venue.

Our venture has so far been a great success: the venue has featured many local and nationally known artists including Amon Tobin, Dead Mau5, and Beats Antique.
