East End Social
The East End Social Club is a new restaurant and bar in Newcastle East within an historic ANZ Bank building on the corner of Brown and Hunter streets. The 190 seat venue is in an emerging entertainment and boutique hospitality precinct. Features include a central courtyard, two levels of casual dining and bar area, with on-street dining area.
Our approach with this project is to weave the history of the site into the projects design. Our material choice is influenced by those you would expect to find in an old bank such as marble, timber and pressed metal. We have reinterpreted such materials for example using pressed metal to create the formwork for the concrete blade at the entry.
