Portal Cocktails

Rob Paulus Architect as Architects

The Portal creates a transformational and inspiring experience for patrons of a craft cocktail bar embedded inside of an existing restaurant in Downtown Tucson, Arizona. The concept establishes distinct contrasts of straight line angularity to curving anthropomorphic geometries to define a unique experience for guests. In between the linear and curving spaces is a low height, mirrored kaleidoscope entry that transitions visitors into the scale-less wooden womb that is comfortable and inviting with good acoustics for sharing secrets. Through its distinct zones of experience, refined complex geometries and detailing of honest materials, the project strives to create a seamless stage to celebrate life and love.
