The interior for the Railway Cocktail Bar draws inspiration from the colourful local graffiti and tattoo art so prolific to the neighbourhood of Windsor, Melbourne.
Featuring striking graphics by Studio Equator, the light boxes that appear inside the bar and outside on the deck are the focus of the design.
