About this project
After serving a lot of beer to a lot of Johners for ten years on the boardwalk, owner Peter Stoddart knew he wanted a new design to carry him through the next ten years! We pretty much gutted the space, adding new communal seating areas, lots of live edge, new stools and chairs, constellations of lights, some sweet neon, and cushions that turned out to be genuinely theft-worthy!
After ten years of business, we needed to freshen up...what was in store for me, I could have never imagined. The restaurant industry is like fashion, really comfortable and delicious fashion...who better to go to – Tuck Interiors - with Judith Mackin. We began the journey and from the first meeting to the last light bulb hung, Judith's keen eye oversaw it all (and her involved hand actually laid down some paint), the detail was second to none, the functionality is superior and the end result, as I have said many times, we're over the moon with excitement. It has maintained what we have built in feel and taken us to a whole new level of design. We are absolutely thrilled with not only the result, but the great journey of understanding design and its function.
