Founded in 1994, Basile is a full-service design, build, and fabrication studio based in San Diego, California. As a design-obsessed, experience-driven hospitality firm, they specialize in the creation of innovative, functional, and distinctly relevant structures, environments, and objects. One of their most popular projects is a trendy retro restaurant in San Diego!
This unique retro restaurant space, located in the beautiful city of San Diego, was one of the studio’s most popular projects due to its luxurious 1930s interior design approach. To reinforce the trendy art deco environment, Basile Studio makes sure to include in the unique design a network of curved camel-colored leather booths (one of the greatest symbols of the 1930s interior design style), parquet, and terrazzo flooring, as well as some tambour paneling features.
The goal for this retro restaurant design project by Basile Studio was to renovate the 1930s-era building into an entirely custom 10,000 square-foot upscale steakhouse. The entire interior design of the popular Born & Raised Steakhouse space is built on a retro color palette, where the shiny woods and golden details take the stand of the look.
One of the most stand-out spaces in this beautiful design is the grand bar area where a unique series of Kelly bar chairs shine in front of a black marble counter. Inspired by the sculpted arches from the bar in the classic movie Casablanca, it’s a timeless and unforgettable piece. This popular piece became one of Essential Home‘s best-selling products due to its modern lines and mid-century design.
As you are stepping into this unique San Diego restaurant you will be entering a unique journey through the glamorous and iconic era of the 1930s. The first-floor dining room is composed of several mid-century design details that will make you feel like you are dining in a stylish restaurant. As if the interior design project wasn’t enough, the popular restaurant project also features a stunning open-air rooftop bar overlooking San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood.
