Miami Beach, Florida
Libertine is Thirlwall’s first venture into hospitality design. This club combines a speakeasy feel with a London private lounge. Several of Thirlwall’s custom design elements came together to create this venue including: the custom banquettes and green velvet chairs; the flooring, which is created with $2000 in pennies with varying levels of polish; a (size) marble fireplace beneath a (size) Venetian glass mirror; black emperor marble countertops; and reclaimed wood from Hall Smith. The golden niche is inspired by David Lynch’s Moholland Drive and is covered in 18 karat gold leaf. The space is decorated with Victorian memento mori, features two World War I equine gas masks, A baby grand piano converted into a DJ deck, and vintage pornography from the 1910’s in the VIP room. All of this serves to enhance the extensive cocktail menu that Libertine has to offer.
