 Beer Merchants Tap

Refurbishment of ex industrial warehouse into bottle bar and craft beer brewery

Mailen Design were appointed to create a concept and interior design for beer wholesalers Cave Direct’s first tap room late in 2017. We were given the perfect canvas, a former book wholesalers warehouse, with exposed steel beams, original exposed brick and concrete floor throughout two huge rooms of approximately 300sqm.


Our design compliments this existing fabric, highlights the subtle details and provides the environment expected of a brewers tap room. Key design features include a new raised seating area, which helps break up the vast space, whilst offering operational flexibility. We also installed a feature bar counter faced with used barrel beer staves, a tiled tap wall, and walls of bottle display chillers, to show off the hundred of beers available.


The second phase of the project will see the creation of a beer blendery, where breweries will come together to create unique and creative beers.
