WKND Hang Suite – Nashville Bar Remodel
A repeat client reached out to us to help them bring more revenue into their Weekend “WKND” centric business night club model. We worked through visioning with two of the partners about how to convert an existing back room of the building into a weekday space, that could service business professionals hoping to avoid Nashville’s scary rush hour traffic, double as space for private events, AND transition back into the original weekend bar business model. We were also asked to Phase this project to include a New outdoor patio area in the rear of the building that could be accessed from the alley and back of house.
We suggested this client utilize our Creator Service Package to get a comprehensive feel for the space before embarking on the remodel. This service package is a less expensive option than Full Scale Architectural Construction Documents that can give our clients the vision and direction to take a space and phase construction as desired. If major building components are not being modified and codes requirements are still being met, then a Southern Athena Service Package could be the best Architectural route to take for your budget. We cover Architectural Phases through Design Development with the Creator Package.

Design Board – Sensual Glam
We sought to extend the current look and feel of the project, such as the Penny bar tops, textures and flooring, while also adding new elements that would help to transform the Hang Suite into its own original place. The newly remodeled Hang Suite design focuses on sex appeal and a sensual comfortable atmosphere. The design showcases a play off of a lounge atmosphere with professional tastes of both men and women in one area.
Warmer colors and sparkling textures added bring a timeless sophistication to the space that can be enjoyed both during the week for cocktail hour and throughout the weekends and private events. Masculine leather couches, chairs, and industrial doors contrast with more feminine elements in the space. Glamorous chandeliers and reflective accents add the light and soft sensual energy that blend perfectly with the high power aspects of a traditional lounge atmosphere.
