The Exchange

Jazz music and fine dining have long been intertwined, with the sophisticated melodies and improvisation of jazz perfectly complementing the complexity and artistry of gourmet cuisine. A jazz and food venue is a perfect opportunity to bring these two art forms together in an immersive, cohesive experience. Both sensual arts derive from cultural and social backgrounds, immersing the user in a community and sense of identity.

With the music and entertainment industry booming in Nottingham, sadly the single jazz venue, Peggy’s Skylight is closing down due to the property being bought by the council for another use however, there is a clear demand for the combination of the sensual richness of jazz and dining.

The design of this Cuisine and Jazz setting will first and foremost create an atmosphere that evokes the feeling of a jazz club. This can be achieved through the use of dim lighting, warm colors, and intimate seating arrangements. The use of rich materials, such as dark woods and leather, will also add to the feeling of exclusivity and refinement. Additionally, a main stage for live performances is imperative.

As a music and food lover, I would like patrons to immerse themselves in this luxury with the option of both inside an outside entertainment. Following a intimate outside venue space, ready for listeners while enjoying the outside seating and stair configuration. Designed to draw you into each element of the scheme.
