Project Details

BKP teamed with Georgetown University and Bon Appétit Management Company to design and build a tavern in the Healey Family Student Center. BKP looked to historical and current cultural favorites of Georgetown students and the community for inspiration. The resulting Bulldog Tavern is a uniquely modern and iconic space. Traditional elements such as wood wainscot, shutters, and booths were adapted with modern detailing. Original campus chapel light fixtures were restored and included in the design. The wood bar features a live-edge Claro walnut slab top and a reclaimed wood facade highlighted by hidden LEDs. A massive keg wall creates a contemporary design feature while serving as a functional partition creating the semi-private Blue Room. The Blue Room decor serves as a living display of all things Georgetown.
