Besaw's restaurant is a venerable Portland dining institution, and has been a beloved fixture in the Portland dining scene for many years. We had the opportunity to help them design their new location, a nearly 3000 SF empty shell space in a new construction building in the Slabtown neighborhood of NW Portland. Custom booth seating, and a horseshoe-shaped marble bar are some of the interior design highlights of the new restaurant. The light fixtures were custom designed by Amiga Lighting, and the wallpaper is a custom design by Kate Blairstone. We also worked with Besaw's to design the Solo Club, a 1500 SF restaurant right next door under the same ownership, with a separate kitchen, menu and decor. In addition, we built a mezzanine in each of the spaces for additional seating and an office. The contractor is Vara Design Build.
Besaw's has been our largest restaurant project to date, and we look forward to doing more work in the thriving restaurant and bar scene in Portland. Photography by Dina Avila.
