If your nightclub or bar design project is on a budget and you’re searching for a creative solution, consider using high-pressure laminates (or HPL’s).

I can hardly imagine anyone who doesn’t understand what a soffit is – at least the most common applications: a soffit is the “box” that sits between the top one’s kitchen cabinets and the ceiling, or the one that closes the area below one’s roof eaves. A soffit is technically the underside of any construction element, such as the area under a flight of stairs.
You’ve seen them everywhere and if you’re in the nightclub and bar sector, you may have even purchased them – railing systems. You will see railing systems commonly at your local Appleby’s, Chilli’s and Wendy’s.
Successful nightclub and bar design is punctuated by thoughtful detail, and I am always searching for new product ideas – nothing is beyond consideration.

I admit it, I’m a sucker for writing about my favorite products. And for good reason. Nightclub and bar owners need to know about all the great stuff that’s out there.
Included in my list of favorite architectural design products is the open cell ceiling, manufactured by Hunter Douglas Contract, a division of Hunter Douglas. Since first introduced to the open cell product over 12 years ago, I fell in love with its beauty and simplicity and have designed it into many nightclubs and bars and in many contexts.
