The Alembic- 06.11.07
The Alembic ~ sister bar to the Magnolia Pub and Brewery down the street on Haight. Haight Street Fair (30th anniversary!) was yesterday, and everyone was out in full force indulging their many vices. At The Alembic i found Good Friends & Great Enemies - and got really sucked in with its incredible branding/graphic design and great ambiance and interiors… oh and also its vast amount of scotches and fine liquors and brilliantly insightful bartenders… OH and i can’t forget the delicious gourmet treats (you MUST try the Grilled Asparagus with Hazelnut Honey Vinaigrette and the Herb Gnocchi with Serrano Ham, Arrugula Pesto, and Saffron. Mmmm.)
BUT, back to why i’m sharing this with you ~ the design. I sat there fawning over the menus, and bar details, as i sipped my drinks… and now that i’m back, checking out the pictures, and their great website as well, the work that Williamsburg based Nothing Something did on their identity and environment i’m completely taken by. So, more images below, of their design, and ambiance, and even another quick 5 second video of the bar scene.
