La Birreria, the 15 th floor rooftop bar and restaurant utop Eataly’s Flatiron location, is a dynamic space designed by TPG Architecture. The concept for La Birreria evokes a 1920s industrial brewery, with brass drum-cymbal inspired light fixtures leading you towards the skyline and copper clad brewing vats set against black subway tiling. Each design element –– from the ground floor entry and themed elevators, to the ascending staircase and the restaurant’s hostess stand –– all reflect the industrial scheme.
The 22-seat bar is topped with white Carrara marble and the tables are made with salvaged wood. The restaurant seats 150 and is equipped with a retractable enclosure that allows it to operate year-round. The space was also designed to be flexible enough to accommodate seasonal transformations. TPG Architecture’s scheme for La Birreria’s bones operate as a refined, contemporary interior canvas that can be easily modified to fit each new theme.
As the sixth venue within Eataly, the modern Italian restaurant features beers brewed on premise and a full rustic Italian menu, as well as a range of wines on tap.
