Brine Oyster Bar is an homage to the architecture of New Orleans’ French Quarter and the refined aesthetic of a classic oyster bar.  The shotgun style main floor plays off the curved balcony on the exterior with a round oyster station that greets guests immediately upon entering. The soft blue and green tile and marble inlaid countertop of the oyster station give way to a stunning zinc topped bar with a walnut face that compliments the rich wood paneling that clads the walls of the main floor.

The pearlescence of the variegated mosaic floor tile and the pressed tin ceiling bring a lightness to the space emphasized by the natural light that streams through an expansive wall of transomed window. A full height decorative metal screen, another nod to the French Quarter aesthetic, screens the stairs to the upper level and creates a perfect frame for Brine’s maritime inspired hand painted signage. Brine offers guests an interior as fresh, light, and sophisticated as the oysters they serve.
