A characterful former bank building in central Wakefield is the new home of Qubana, a Cuban-Spanish inspired bar and grill, following a £1M investment by hospitality operator Matthew Burton.
Interior design by Paul Schofield of PA Schofield Ltd has transformed the interior, retaining all the stunning architectural features of this impressive building, including the panelled ceiling, enormous fluted columns and ornate plasterwork.
The centrepiece in the former banking hall is a large American walnut bar, for which Andy Thornton supplied the sumptuous leather upholstered button-back bar stools.
Facing the bar, our popular Draughtsman bar stools have been used extensively, along the drink shelf attached to the front of the decorative metal balustrading, again supplied by Andy Thornton. They are also paired with Continental cast iron poseur tables in the ‘Gin & Cocina’ area.
In the main dining area on the raised section, Andy Thornton supplied all the loose furniture, including leather upholstered dining chairs, lounge chairs and table bases.
Andy Thornton also provided furniture for the private dining room, ‘The Vault’.
Outside Andy Thornton supplied furniture for the covered ‘La Terraza’ roof-top space, which is quickly becoming the most popular summer drinking destination in Wakefield and for the popular informal cobbled area to the rear.
