The makeover does away with the peachy colors and brings out the strength of the dark wood floors with brighter lighting, white walls, and furniture that carries a sense of elegance that the old design lacked. Pictured above and below is the new restaurant and bar, The Nickel and Barrel Bar. The former features a wood-fire grill that rotates its fuel seasonally - think oak, cherry, and peach wood - and the latter's claim to fame is a curated barrel-aged cocktail program. You can see more photos and the new menu here.
The two photos below picture the before-and-after transition of a library lounge now known as The Study, adjacent to the new bar and restaurant and a gathering place for breakfast, happy hour, small bites, and coffee breaks. The Teatro has started a coffee roasting program in tandem with Method Roasters, a local small-batch specialist whose coffee is served throughout the hotel.
The injection of natural light was high on the Teatro's list during the renovations, as it removed many of the outside awnings to help brighten up the interior. We definitely think the hotel succeeded in creating a more modern looking property. What do you think of the changes? Do you like the modern look, or did you prefer the warmth of the old design?
