Beer Belly is a beer bar focused on serving craft beer from all over the greater Los Angeles. The project, located in California’s Long Beach, was designed by architecture and interior design studio Make Architecture.

“We sought utilize the existing douglas fir wood truss ceiling as a dominant architectural feature by creating continuous skeletal forms emanating from the ceiling that wrap down and become floating table tops at bar area as well as angle down and provide the spatial definition of the booths adjacent to the bar. The main bar, situated just opposite the glass-clad table tops comprised of douglas fir framing members, is clad in an undulating “blackened” metal with sleek, yet crunched forms- almost in re-appropriated artifact fashion. Glass “blade” internally lit shelves provide visual datums within the rear wall of bar and extending around the bar corner into the booths area adjacent,” explains Make Architecture
