Location: San Francisco, CA
Design: Martin heid design/build
An American take on a Copenhagen brewery, Mikkeller is as much a standout for it's location as it is for the design.
With blond woods, exposed brick, and industrial charm the space perfectly blends the Scandinavian lightness with the gritty and raw location. Many of the design components remind me of Torst beer bar, located in Brooklyn.
Teaming up with The Trappist of Oakland and Mikkel Borg, who opened the original Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen, the bar has high standards to be the best beer bar in the US.
The large scale of the two story space is accentuated with large scale graphics, heavy steel posts and an all encompassing bar surrounded by minimalist bar stools.
