Shelter Cocktail Bar

Shelter is an intimate and upscale cocktail bar. Combining elements from high end hotel bars across the USA and original industrial grunge styles from Berlin and Eastern Europe, SHELTER is a juxtaposition of opulent and casual. Our atmosphere is often described by guests as cozy, intimate, and unlike another space. With a moody, low-lit backdrop, the location houses several standout design pieces, including an artfully decorated wall of gas masks, and a beautifully crafted light fixture featuring over 5,000 individual bulbs serving as an undulating canopy of light over the main lounge.
