Dining With Design: The Sinclair

A restaurant/rock-club hybrid in the heart of Cambridge designed around and inspired by music

Dine with designer Stephen Martyak Assoc. AIA, owner of studioTYAK, and Josh Bhatti, general manager of The Bowery Presents: Boston, as they talk about the music-infused design process that led to Harvard Square’s groundbreaking restaurant/rock-club hybrid, The Sinclair. Tour the space, sip a cocktail, sample the menu, and learn how a photograph of folksinger Justin Townes Earle, a playlist created by Bhatti, and an existing concrete ceiling became the inspiration for a design concept that transformed an office building into a 140-seat restaurant and a 525-person rock club.

Dining With Design Series

This summer, BSA Space is offering an exclusive glimpse into some of Boston’s most innovative dining spots through the BSA’s Dining With Design Series. Through conversations and tours hosted by the architect and chef of each restaurant, these intimate Dining With Design sessions will explore the unique design challenges and solutions for various dining spaces in the city, and how the architecture helps support each restaurant’s mission.

The first restaurant featured in the Dining With Design Series, TRADE, was a roaring success. Attendees enjoyed an intimate conversation with architect Maryann Thompson and chef/owner Jodi Adams about their unique collaboration, and turning unexpected challenges into iconic aspects of the space. Over wine and delicious menu samples, the group enjoyed a rare behind-the-scenes look at one of Fort Point’s most celebrated restaurants.
