Stieglitz Snyder Architecture worked closely with Misuta Chow owners, Christi Allen and Johny Chow, to renovate an existing Main Street storefront into a Japanese bar arcade.

The design intends to mimic or replicate a narrow Japanese street with playful elements from 80’s pop culture throughout. Colorful pendant and neon lights illuminate the upstairs bar and evoke Japan’s famously bright digital advertisements.

The two story space features an open kitchen, restaurant seating for up to forty, a bar on the first and second floor with seating up to eighty and an arcade with pinball machines, classic arcade games, and skeeball. The two level kitchen has prep area in the basement and an open concept on the first floor allowing patrons to watch as their food is prepared and allowing kitchen staff to interact directly with customers.
