Pivot North Architecture

Water Bear Bar

Located in the historic Jefferson Building on 9th and Jefferson in downtown Boise, Water Bear Bar desired to create an atmosphere mimicking an escape to a tropical vacation through an eclectic mountain tiki vibe, plush seating, low lighting, and vibrant wallpaper.

The objective was to provide a comfortable and intimate experience encouraging patrons to linger and indulge in multiple craft cocktails, eat fresh oysters, and enjoy good music. The design includes acoustical and window treatment, finish and accessory selections, lighting design and furniture.
