Monarch Bar

When Tadd Cortell and Michael Byrnes wanted to launch Monarch here in San Francisco, they came to One Hat One Hand to mastermind their interior design.

Our mission was to transform a former dance club into a swanky lounge. One Hat One Hand pulled out all the stops on this one. We had three of our artists conceptualize and design unique elements for the new bar. Monarch gave us extensive creative control, and it shows in the end product.

Highlights include unique lighting made from antique brass instruments, custom wood decorations, and a copper entryway divider with insect specimen clips and magnifying glasses.
