Located on the busy 3rd street in West Hollywood, The Churchill Restaurant and bar is located in The Orlando Hotel. This 5,400 sq. ft. two story restaurant, bar and private dining room has been remodeled, reconstructed and subsequently redesigned to reflect what can only be described as “deconstructed neo-traditional.” In order to create a space with the integrity and mystery of a newly discovered treasure, not an inch of the space was left without clear attention to detail. The Churchill houses over 60 one-of-a-kind candelabras and lanterns inspired by lighting fixtures from the early 1900's which N.Y.I.D designed, specified and manufactured. The custom chandelier and pendant lights take a turn towards a contemporary edge by using the first fluorescent Plumen bulbs in the United States. All of the tufted booths were custom designed by N.Y.I.D as were the additional furnishings such as the distressed leather Chesterfield sofa, antique frames hiding the modern edges of flat-screen T.V.’s, re-purposed wood table tops, custom wall coverings and wainscotting.
The exterior of The Churchill Restaurant was completely re-done with distressed brick, new paint colors and industrial factory-style windows. The team added sliding doors all around the exterior of the patio as well as an outdoor fireplace and seating area to add to the dreamy ambience. All of the second story bathrooms were gutted and re-conceptualized with a fresh covering of almond colored subway tile and hexagon tiled floors with a black matte border design, while the downstairs bathroom has more of a polished/rustic feel using faux-wood ceramic tile, oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and multi-toned ceramic flooring.
The main bar was completely re-located to the opposite side of the space to give patrons more room to mingle and allow for additional seating. Some of the unique touches to the custom bar include: floating cabinets with custom metal grating and tiered shelving to display all the bottles, a custom antiqued mirror backsplash, a metal-rimmed bar counter top, and lighting fixtures above the bar that are suspended by chains.
