Project Description:

Located in a dense neighborhood near the Berkeley / Oakland border, this intimate bar and onsite craft brewery takes up just 700 square feet. Branded as Hoi Polloi, a “beat lounge + brew pub for the People”, the project was inspired by the East Bay’s juxtapositions of the urban working-class and wealthier suburban populations. The material palette is simultaneously utilitarian (peg-board, unfinished brick, bare concrete floors) and luxe (quartz counters, subway tile, stainless steel). With its brewing area fully open to the barroom, the tiny space has an atmosphere of accessibility, warmth, and generosity.
