Branding, Architecture & Interior Design

Faber was appointed by independent operator Davenport Inns to rebrand and refurbish an existing bar in the historic cathedral city of Lichfield, Staffordshire.

The owner sought to transform a tired, confused, space into a stylish, contemporary venue that would appeal to Lichfield’s day trippers and shoppers, whilst adding to the city’s growing independent bar scene and thriving nightlife.

The chic new bar area creates a vibrant focal point, providing a cosy coffee hangout by day, and elegant cocktail spot by night. Plush booth seating and ambient lighting offer a warm, welcoming environment to sample the selection of craft beers, contemporary cocktails and classic, home-cooked dishes.

In the words of Tony Matters, Creative Director of Faber:

“Lichfield is such a beautiful place, it’s great to see it’s independent bar and restaurant scene starting to take shape. 55 Wade Street will be a fantastic new addition, providing a cool and contemporary bar with seriously delicious food. As always, it’s great to be working with an ambitious and passionate independent operator to bring their vision to life.”
