The interior of Potts Point restaurant The Bourbon, by Paul Kelly Design, uses quality finishes and detail to present a classic but vibrant New-York-inspired space. Comprising rich walnut tones edged with brass highlights and 1920s Atlantic tones, the interior is accentuated with punches of contemporary lighting amid textured black-on-black Soho-styled brick columns.

Mink-toned Haisa marble herringbone floors are replicated on the ceilings, which feature handmade oak tinted timber herringbone. Taking customers to the basement facilities is a staircase in solid brass, with bronze-fretted panelling and timber walnut handrails – arriving at a carpet of hand-crafted Italian glass mosaics in a pattern reminiscent of a 1930s brooch.

In the basement, a French antique cast iron free-standing fountain centrepieces the space and has been modified to create a hand basin for four.

Terrible shame about the replica furniture that Paul Kelly’s team have used in the venue. Disappointing.
