status: completed 1999

The Monkey Bar (now called Bistro 63 at the Monkey Bar) has proven to be one of the most popular restaurant destinations in Amherst, Massachusetts. Austin Design Inc was hired to design a complete renovation of the main bar and seating area. The innovative use of reflective and textured materials creates a space that is both unique and inviting.

The bar / restaurant was designed with college students in mind, which resulted in the selection of materials that were not only eye-catching but had proven durability. The space has now withstood a decade of use – and remains an elegant, grown-up place to eat superb food and enjoy a drink.
