The Background

Riding on the back of the success of the first Manahatta bar in Leeds' Merrion Street followed Manahatta, Greek Street. The theme of the Manahatta brand is to replicate the bars of Manhattan with their stylish laidback atmosphere incorporating the typical urban yet New York vibe.

The Challenge

Having previously worked with designers KPP in Leeds on the previous Manahatta project, we were approached to carry out the work for the second venue.

They were looking for fitting which would create the urban New York look required, while at the same time ensuring that customers recognised the bar as part of the Manahatta brand; yet with its own quirkiness.

The Solution

The designers chose fittings from Chantelle Lighting's Popular District range for the entrance area. Jersey and Manhattan lights in petrol blue and Yonkers lights in honey, complemented with bronze spray frame, hang in eye-catching cluster from the entrance ceiling.

Above the tables hang a mixture of 11 single antique pendants with mirrored inner and rustic filament bulb, two medium geometric style Aether pendants and nine two-cluster pendant fittings with glass shades, in a mix of honey and clear with bronze spray metalwork.

Over the bar hang 11 single pendants with bell-shaped glass shades in honey, while further District cluster featuring four Jersey (Petrol Blue), one Manhattan (Petrol Blue) and four Yonkers (Honey) fittings festoon the open area.

The mood is created with 18 single antique wall lights with mirrored inner, three industrial matt black strip wall lights, five coll industrial mesh wall light with glass dome front, four industrial table lamps and one industrial style sign light with glass cover and letter 'M' detail.

External lighting is made up of three runs of 20 festoon lamps in a bronze spray finish and one adorning the entrance area.

The Result

The result is a bar which complements the Merrion Street venue to perfection, while at the same time owning its own edgy vibe.
