Wink & Nod
The Wink & Nod concept in Boston is speakeasy meets modern opium den. We wanted the space to feel thoughtfully eclectic taking cues from opulent Chinese-design along with the pragmatic sensibilities of the Prohibition era in America.
The instinct when designing a space without windows is to brighten it up. We decided to go the other way with it, be bold and use it to our advantage. The backlit bar is a clear focal point on one side while the adjacent dining lounge is anchored by a vintage fireplace.
