Jun 10, 2011 Hand Lettering
Last night I spent time with a great friend at The Room on Sullivan street. This place, personally is my favorite bar for beer anywhere in the city. The low light, the granite and welded metal make the bar unapologetically masculine, but in a classic gentlemen’s way.
One of my favorite parts about the bar is the level of care and detail the menu boards are refreshed, all with simply blackboard slate and chalk. The ornaments and subtly grid balanced listings really show the handicraft of a real typographer.
Don’t forget to check out the “Employees must wash hands” sign, which is done in the same fashion. Thankfully, that sign is shielded from drunken patrons with a thin sheet of plexiglas.
Always a favorite.
