Owner of the world’s favourite rum and most awarded spirit, Bacardi-Martini represents five global brands well-known to spirits consumers: Bacardi rum; Martini vermouth; Grey Goose vodka; Dewar’s whisky; and Bombay Sapphire gin. The company has a rich heritage that dates back to the Bacardi family’s foundation of the company in Havana, Cuba in 1865. In fact, the company to this day is family owned and operated.
Our design concept was inspired by this rich history, which resulted in our designing and building a completely fitted, fully-functioning professional bar, completed with bartender, bar stools and lounge-sofa area, as the company headquarters’ Reception. The style is a modern reinterpretation of an Art Deco-period Havana cocktail lounge.
Far from being a frivolous or extravagant feature, this room is an everyday part of the company’s business, as the bar acts as a training centre for their mixologists, complete with projector and screen for training sessions. Beyond this, the meeting rooms are all branded according to one of the five global brands, and the workplace is bright, open, transparent and collaborative.
