Cydneybrooks Cafe & Bar

The owner of Cydneybrooks Cafe & Bar envisioned the unique opportunity to create a refuge for the adult work force of Waikiki while capitalizing on the heavy tourist pedestrian traffic along Royal Hawaiian Avenue. The existing 1,500 SF space was converted from a retail store into a cafe and bar that includes open seating areas, a lounge area and provide booth seating.

With the exterior walls consisting mostly of windows, it was important to create an inviting ambiance that beckons the heavy pedestrian traffic inside. The goal was to create a high impact space - one that is uniquely different - on modest means.
