Madison Square Tavern



Garment District, New York, NY






7,000 ft2


Drawing inspiration from the original Penn Station’s interior with industrial metal truss and columns, GHS Architect’s design for Madison Square Tavern, a three-level bar and tavern in Manhattan Garment District created a dramatic space with a 17 ft high ceiling that feels like industrial, yet perfectly adapted for a cutting edge new restaurant. The design accomplishes this by exposing the massive steel columns in the center of the space and revealing raw concrete floors, and providing contrast through highly polished elements that were added to accent the space, such as back lit onyx bar top, LED lighted liquor shelves, big flat screen TV’s, and over sized hanging light fixtures. The new metal store front and mezzanine rails with black metal mesh panels and steel posts were added to reinforce the industrial look of the space.
