This intimate wine bar is a love letter to our theatre district and its dramatic vaudeville past. Dancers, comedians, lion tamers, drag queens, and stars like Fred Astaire, Ed Wynn, Eva Tanguay, Charlie Chaplin and Harry Houdini all performed in our beloved Winnipeg theatres before the silver screen existed. Winnipeggers were known to have the most discerning taste and if a show succeeded here, it was off to the rest of the continent. We tried to capture a tiny bit of that gilded sparkle and drama that we hope you will sense as you sip a glass of champagne among friends and neighbours in the @exchangedistrictwpg . 🥂 Photography by @nowadaystudios #wpgeats #winnipegartist #ywg #winnipegfoodie #canadasbest100 #vaudeville #winebar #winebardesign #tourismwinnipeg #bardesign #interiors123 #champagnebar

So many craftspeople involved in this one little vignette at Rosé! Since we are the general contractor as well as the designer, we get to collaborate with a lot of talented folks and small businesses who really care about their craft. We designed custom chairs together with Dan @fineformupholstery , booths with Kayla @artupholstery silver foil with Matt @capperbrothers millwork by Jeff/Mark @kanemillwork , custom marble tables with Joseph @carraratile lighting by Kasey/Chad @makapowerwpg custom carpet installed by Adam @prairieconcepts , painting by Hay, all choreographed by Fireside’s @matthewsaloalloneword … and this is just one little nook! We ask a LOT of these fine folks and they always rise to the challenge.

We often hear folks asking about what happened to our umbrella room at the @nonsuchbeer tap room. This design was always meant to be a temporary installation, and was around much longer than originally intended because guests loved it so much. In it’s still-too-brief tenure, the umbrella room was a setting for wedding photo shoots, a music video, and many many selfies while sipping some excellent Belgian-style craft beer on an average night. Our design inspiration came from the beer brand itself, minimal and elegant in black and gold. The idea of “protective space” has always been central to our design philosophy, and being covered by a cloud of golden glowing umbrella lights created a magical setting…. And very flattering lighting. Each lightbulb is coated in an opaque gold top, so when inverted like this, the light only travels up rather than down. As one of our rules of artificial lighting design dictates, more points of light at lower wattages yields better results. No glare, all glow.
