The Sovengard, Grand Rapids, MI
Rivertown Woodcraft was selected to be among a small group of crafts-people to help create what is known as The Sovengard, a beirgarten and restaurant located in the west side of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Rivertown Woodcraft was responsible for the design and construction of the interior (lower level) bar and liquor shelving, cabinetry, kitchen and host partition walls, and the exterior storage container bar liquor shelving.
In 2018 The Sovengard asked Rivertown Woodcraft to help grow their restaurant space into a second dining area. Our design and build out included installation of three 150 year old hand hewn barn beams capped with shaker columns on either end. RW also designed the bar from scratch according to the clients needs, and after framing, installed the board and batten facade and two inch thick walnut bar top. The top also includes a gate for the bartenders. RW also built nine black walnut two person tables for the space. These are spread throughout both dining spaces. Seventy two feet of banquettes were also designed in house and fabricated from steel and powder coated locally. Upholstered cushions were placed on walnut platforms to complete to look.
