The Penrose Christmas
Seasonal Decorating
Launch date: December 2012

There's a lot of traditional qualities that were researched & executed when initially decorating the Penrose after opening last May 2012. Therefore it only made sense to explore what a traditional Christmas might look like to a bar transplant composed from a train station in Ireland. Garlands, wreaths, evergreens, silk bows & foiled gold decked the halls and booths. Fresh pine, holly & spearmint complimented the hot steaming cider with a cinnamon stick served daily during the season. Then a combination of miniatures made from holiday relics, folded paper & tiny trees that lit up in a few bell jars... this is possibly the Christmas I had only seen in storybooks.
