Brasserie la Banque
Paying homage to the building’s unique history that dates to the 18th century, the 2,500-square-foot restaurant, designed by Charleston-based interior designers Gil Evans and David Leboutillier, offers elements of sophistication and comfort that complements the original architecture. Original ornate crown molding mixed with statement light fixtures can be found throughout the space. The floorplan features high ceilings and an intimate dining room anchored by a large bar and open kitchen. To evoke classic European luxury but remain modern, the design team went with a deep green and burnt orange color scheme accentuated by leather and brass accents in the 60-seat dining room. Traditional bent wood bistro chairs pair with salmon-colored upholstered stools at the bar. In the back dining room, situated off to the side from the main dining room through a doorway, red leather booths, globe pendant lighting, petite lampshade bar top lighting and antique mirrors cast a nod to the classic brasserie. Wood plank flooring and natural stucco walls are featured throughout the space. Downstairs, a hidden cocktail bar offers guests a unique experience.
