AAmp was commissioned by Death & Company to design two subterranean bars in Los Angeles’ Arts District. This space is the third outpost of the cocktail group.
The design includes two bars flanking a central service core. Each bar takes cues from Death & Co’s spaces in New York and Denver while incorporating playful and patterned elements that reflect Los Angeles.
The intimate 30-seat bar at the entry provides a space for patrons to wait with a cocktail for a seat in the larger 80-seat bar beyond. The pullman booths are strategically tucked between large columns throughout the space, giving an opportunity for a layered sense of intimacy within the larger space. The bathrooms provide an opportunity to bring out more of the rich colors peppered throughout the rest of the space, each one fully saturated in a single color to immerse the patron in its glow.
