Julep Cocktail Club

After the success of their traveling cocktail club, Hawthorne & Julep, a husband and wife duo were prepared to establish something more permanent. Located just off of a newly reinvigorated stretch of Kansas City’s historic Westport entertainment district – the oldest established community in the city – this elegant whiskey spot’s charming design details are causing as much buzz as the delicious hand-crafted cocktails they sling.

Inspired by a 1940’s feel, our client wanted to expand on a brand already developed with their traveling cocktail business. Classic yet fresh, architectural elements are highlighted with dramatic lighting focused on a stunning walnut bar and organically formed hideaways – such as the VIP lounge. Herringbone pattern white oak flooring lays a warm yet refined groundwork for pops of color and delicate beaded draperies.

We think you’ll enjoy the space as much as the libations.
