Case Study


Marmalade Bistro And Bar At The REP

The Client 

Marmalade Bistro And Bar is situated at The REP Theatre and is brought to you by Bitters ‘n Twisted, the creative team behind many of Birmingham’s much loved venues which include Buffalo & Rye, Bodega and The Jekyll and Hyde tavern. Birmingham Repertory Theatre has been at the forefront of the Birmingham theatre culture for many years, Marmalade is situated in the framed arches of the building and offers great tasting food and drink as well as friendly and passionate service.

The Project

The clients vision was to create a homely venue, creatively designed  for the people of Birmingham to enjoy. We worked directly for Bitters ‘n’ Twisted and along side the commercial designers Heterarchy to complete the refurbishment. We manufactured and installed a new bespoke curved bar complete with an Ash veneered top which we stained and distressed to match the designers sample.  The front of the bar we cladded and finished with a single row of cream metro tiles to the top edge and we installed LED lighting to the underside of the bar top, on the front and back. We also manufactured and installed a curved bulkhead which was then sealed with wallpaper and also a bespoke island counter to accommodate the drinks chillers. We also carried out some decoration, partitioning, plumbing and floor covering work.

The Benefit 

Our client now has a fully functional bar that fits in well with the stylish and creative decor. Our bespoke joinery service gives us the diversity to meet any specialist requirements that our clients have. We are able to create their vision enabling the finishing project to look good and work well within the venue for the staff and customers to enjoy.
