Drift Oyster Bar

  • Interior Design

In pursuit of a causal, yet upscale neighborhood seafood restaurant, Chef Turbush teamed up with ai3 for the third time to bring this oasis to life.

Much of the vision that drives ai3’s design is rooted in the kitchen with the food as the main ingredient inspiring the design. Beyond an extensive vintage oyster can collection, the warmth of sun bleached woods contrast cool blue draperies, reminiscent of the coast and the fruits of the sea. Suspended oars sway over tarnished zinc surfaces in the shadows of towering, slate precipes. Enveloped in the eddy of the bar, raw oyster bar and kitchen, the dining room of Drift is dappled with poolside furniture and custom steel sculptures under a sky of twinkling string lights. In the bar’s open windows to patio seating, sail cloths float as if caught in a sea breeze, creating the atmosphere for relaxed, indoor and outdoor dining alike.

Let's get in touch.
