Salvage Bar & Lounge, LA


As much reinvention as restoration, the interiors of the new Salvage Bar & Lounge in LA demonstrate a fresh way to use salvaged materials.

The bar forms part of a larger residential complex, built using materials saved from wreckage during the renovation of downtown LA’s Roosevelt Lofts (originally built in 1926) – the site on which the new space now sits.

Situated on the ground floor of the freshly completed apartment block, the bar’s distinctive interiors include heavy wooden doors and a stained-glass window, flanking the bar area; cararra marble slabs that have been transformed into bistro tables; and art created from ornate elevator ceilings. Each element has been meticulously restored to its original beauty.

Conceived as a trio of spaces, the bar encompasses three core identities: an indoor/outdoor “chateau” terrace area; a main room, where older, more palatial features are used to create a glamorous and warm ambience; and the “uber-lounge”, offering a more modern setting.
