Cara LP owns and runs four successful venues in Minnesota, USA. Owned and managed by an ex-Hilton executive, Peter Killen, the level of service found at each of their establishments is second to none.
Having created all of their Minnesota based pubs and restaurants, Design and Build has a long standing relationship with Cara LP. In 2009, they approached us to create their latest addition to their pub portfolio, The Cooper. Unlike their other locations, The Cooper was located in a suburban area. The need to create a female, family friendly environment was central to the design and layout of this pub. It was decided that an upscale European design style would best fit this audience.
With 9,000 sq. ft. of space to utilise, we felt that creating five hospitality spaces would best maximise the area as well as best match each of their clients’ needs and tastes. Each space has its own unique design style from the snug, meeting room feel of the cutting room through to the open plan, finely furnished restaurant area.
