Originally a traditional pub, Tanguy’s bar in Jersey has undergone a complete re-design to create a variety of exiting spaces that make it arguably the most talked about bar in Jersey.
The bar has been targeted at the 20-50 year age-group and has been designed to achieve sophistication whilst maintaining a trendy style.
Tanguy’s consists of a main bar, cocktail bar and a separate dance floor, all located on the ground floor.
The design is based on three themes; “diamond”, “emerald” and “ruby”. These three themes which underpin the design are intended to create separate zones with a systematic layout according to the order of events in which they are likely to be used.
The “diamond” theme at entrance level acts as a welcoming bar, with white leather bar stools and a dazzling, metallic, front of bar finish to reflect the theme. The colour scheme centers around silver and white with special feature crystal ceiling lights. A comfortable corner seating area offers as a retreat zone with its elegant, contemporary style decor and leather cushioned walls.
The “emerald” theme at mid-point acts as a cocktail bar with feature pendant lighting over the seating areas. The floral, back-lit wall paneling which runs along the main wall is a prominent, contemporary, feature within this space.
The “ruby” theme at the rear, acts as a nightclub, and centers around a red and gold colour scheme. The spectacular draped, gold ceiling is the focal point of the ruby zone complimented by gold, button tufted, banquette seating and a specially designed DJ booth to match. The lighting accentuates the ambience and has been incorporated into parts of the furniture, including red LED back-lit wall panels and internally lit round tables which illuminate a radiant glow.
Steve Ward from Astounding added ‘the thought process behind this project, was based on a tight knit community of regular high end socialites, I visited the competition and saw the same tired old look that has been done time and time again. It’s boring, I knew the people on this Island were well travelled and had a lot of experience in seeing other establishments from around the world. I wanted to give them something of a high caliber on their doorstep.
We defiantly achieved it, by all accounts on the way the huge success of the venue. As usual we take in to account so many criteria when the clients approach us for design mobilization. We endeavor to create something unique that sets them apart from the tiresome high street venues.’
“Astounding excelled with this project, they have made me the happiest person alive with the ideas and design they came up with, we met at the bar 09 trade show and the following week Steve was out in Jersey doing a recce and surveying the bar. I can’t believe what they have done for us, it’s been a huge, huge success and I wish them all the best, for these very talented designers. “
