Area 15’s Bar Promises a 23-Foot Twinkling Japanese Maple Tree

Plus cocktails, coffee, and more

Area 15, the 200,000-square-foot retail and entertainment center west of I-15 that plans to offer live events and art installations, landed a new bar from the team behind Commonwealth and Park on Fremont. Oddwood, highlighted by a 23-foot Japanese maple tree replete with twinkling LED lights, plans to open in 2020 with the rest of the center with a menu of cocktails and coffee.

Ryan Doherty of Corner Bar Management Group worked with Area 15’s creative team to create the bar, anchored by that maple tree built by Symmetry Labs and set off by a 28-feet-long by 17-feet-wide canopy with more than 5,000 twinkling LED lights.

Area 15 touts this space as a “lost forest where only odd, digital seeds remain.” The bar complements the look of Spine, a public corridor that runs through the center of the complex. That ever-changing space is the the first area the public sees.

Aside from beers and cocktails, Oddwood will serve coffee from Vesta Coffee Roasters. Oddwood does not plan to use straws and napkins.

Drink tables and mini-lanterns by Hybycozo features laser-cut designs that cast unusual geometric shadows throughout the space. A community table with room for 10 and a large center bar made from different woods and framed the digital tree round out the space.

Earlier this year, Area 15 announced that Emporium, a bar and arcade entertainment space, joins the space with 100 classic arcade games including pinball, skee ball, air hockey, pool tables, foosball, arcade basketball, and much more.
