Restaurants Unlimited Inc
R estaurants Unlimited (RUI) approached Graphite with a single flagship and several projects already in development. RUI sought to further refine the flagship design while bringing Henry’s into multiple new markets while broadening their reach into new demographics. In addition to establishing the national Henry’s brand, Graphite’s role was expanded into additional RUI brands, such as Kincaid’s, Clinkerdagger’s, and Stanford’s. Graphite has been involved in remodeling projects for existing properties, location-specific restaurants, and national RUI brands.
Henry's Tavern in Bellevue, Washington seats 499 guests, a 3,000 square foot kitchen, 120 beer taps, two private dining spaces, a large sports bar, dining room and lounge.
120 Taps to choose from.
Since the goal was to establish Henry's as a destination for beer lovers and 'celebrate' a large array of micro-brews, Graphite was presented with a unique set of complications within the restaurant space. With 120 taps online and 150 barrels available for use, complex engineering and design were employed to showcase the glass-encased keg room, organized beer lines and array of taps. Special glazing and refrigeration were employed to be kept at near-freezing temperatures.
