Sometimes the vision doesn’t match the result, it turns into something even better than what was originally imagined. The original plan for this building was to create a flexible events space with an indoor bar and outdoor beer garden. Through many pivots, we took setbacks and turned them into set-ups for success and changed the design of the space to become a fine dining restaurant
The Syndicate, located in Bellefontaine, OH once served as Jackson’s News Stand from 1946-1993. The Syndicate features decorative and historic pieces from its former life. A large, custom-built bar topped with salvaged glass windows and large quartz countertops resembles a New York-style newsstand, while the walls are adorned in local Bellefontaine newspapers from years past. The restaurant’s massive indoor center hall also features exposed ceilings and elaborate custom tile flooring.
