Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes was hired to trans- form a run-of-the-mill basement into a pub-style space with a bar, wine cellar and, down the hall, a gym and full bath. The owners, avid hockey fans,also requested space for showcasing their Washington Capitals memorabilia.
The Michael Nash team designed a dark-stained, cherry-wood bar topped with granite and featuring seating on leather stools. Storage is concealed behind a wall of display shelves beside the bar. A custom, arched door leads to the wine cellar, which boasts mahogany wine racks, beaded wood paneling and climate control. A stone fireplace wall beckons from one corner of the room.
■The bar is equipped with wine cooler, beer fridge and
cabinets for glassware
■ Pendant lights over the bar convey the pub aesthetic
■ Professional custom wine cellar
■ The gym features mirror walls and rubber floors
