Last month, early renderings of City Winery's forthcoming location emerged. The 28,000 square-foot space had a large event space, a grand dining room and a bar where you could dine.
Now, updated renderings by the design team comprising Phillip Katz, Michael Dorf and Chris Warnick have been released and while the building will still feature high ceilings, reclaimed wood, metal, brick and other materials, the designs are a bit different. Here, in the above gallery, you'll see an aerial view that shows a glass facade revealing views of the city, the outdoor courtyard and City Winery's "living wall" that will feature year-round plants, which will be a nice addition to Randolph Street come winter.
Inside, the renderings show a private dining room that's viewable and accessible from the working winery; a fireplace lounge area that's part of the main bar (from which guests can access the second-level dining area); and a grand music and performance space that utilizes reclaimed wood and masonry archways.
