Barcade Center City

Barcade Center City is located in the Hale Building, built by W.G. Hale, the architect who also designed the Divine Lorraine. Pulling from several architectural trends, Hale disregarded the clean, classic design that was growing in popularity at the turn of the century and focused on High Victorian design. The 8,000 square feet on the ground level with entrance facing Chestnut Street includes a mezzanine for bilevel entertainment. The renovations included a full kitchen, 70 linear foot bar and seating occupancy over 175 people.

Significant Milestones for the project included: Installation of a New Kitchen Exhaust System and Make Up Air unit on the Roof, Eight stories up along with a sewage ejector pump that allowed the basement to be fully utilized. Careful coordination of all piping in the basement was required because of low ceilings. We also worked to bring the elements of shou sugi ban into the job for the accent walls throughout and incorporated with custom detailing for the white pine ceiling. This paired well with the custom railings and new staircase that provide direct access to the mezzanine level. This project was topped off with a custom zinc bar to showcase the beer tap that Barcade displays at each of their locations.
