Opened just this year, this restaurant features a fast-casual chicken concept in the front and a beautiful whiskey bar in the back. It boasts skylights that let in plenty of natural light, a vinyl-only DJ booth, and a wall covered in ’90s art and music posters. The overall design concept for the long and narrow 3,000-square-foot space centers on “vintage industrial” with nods to Venezuela and Peru set in a building built 127 years ago. In the front (32 seats), guests order and pick up food from the counter, while in the back (30 seats), guests can enjoy their whiskey-focused drinks with or without chicken.
A drink rail along one wall provides extra room to sit or stand. Earth tones like gold (symbolizing the colors of Peru) and clay pair with gray, white and red (like that of a Venezuelan soccer club) throughout the space. At the bar, a large butcher-block slab serves as the focal point, surrounded by drink rails, metal stools and bar chairs.
