The Bird Cage, Wrest Point Casino

Wrest Point , Tasmania

This ambitious new bar and lounge space was originally a popular nightclub in the Casino. Inspiration was derived from the existing heritage murals by famous artist, Charles Billich, featuring dancing cabaret girls wearing peacock style outfits. A glamourous feel was applied through the selection of rich contrasting colours and materials. Two Swarovski encrusted crystal peacocks sitting in a vitrine are on display in the front window, custom designed by a New York based artist. The bar was relocated and allowed for more lounge space, whilst opening up and activating the adjacent thoroughfare. Artists were commissioned to work on bespoke decorative pieces and Altis created a custom carpet design inline with the peacock theme.
