Working with Thomas, owner and founder of Manhattans, on this project was a great pleasure. He needed something edgy but classic, edible with a zing to it… and “something that you won’t see anywhere else!” It was a tall order. The finished product holds true to its jazz roots, with a little sparkle of glam in the wall paper and fabric textures. A commercial grade faux ostrich leather adorns the seats, which will stand up to the pepper flake infused oils necessary to season their famous pizza. We managed to incorporate Thomas’s eclectic collection of accessories while adding much needed storage space and functionality to the bar and service stations. The place has been buzzing since it reopened in May 2011, and will continue to be one of Guelph’s hot spots for many years to come. Cheers Thomas!
