Hubbard Bar & Grille
4,700 sq ft
Hubbard Grille fuses the buildings historic foundation with the modern uptempo atmosphere of the Short North's arts district. Because of its location in this vibrant and pedestrian friendly community, DCI positioned a large island bar along the street to activate the corner.
DCI incorporated exposed brick walls, dark woods and many custom features including glass and metal "lanterns" which give soft amber lighting throughout. The exterior sign is a re-interpretation of the car dealership's who first occupied the historic building, and stands over 25 feet tall.
"We wanted a place that was rooted in the present, reverent of the past, while remaining balanced and bold toward the future; Design Collective met those challenges head on to create a place where people feel welcome and can enjoy themselves." - Sheila Trautner, Taste Hospitality Group
