Combining dark, plant-filled interiors with ambient beats, Undercote has the feel of a moonlit jungle oasis in the middle of the city, offering guests a bespoke cocktail experience.
The speakeasy location of Undercote, literally below the Michelin star restaurant, Cote inspired the logo and the branding. We translated the interior’s moonlit experience into the collateral materials such as applying a glow-in-the-dark ink (phosphorescent).
To access the cocktail bar there is a series of signage that we designed to match Cote’s. Check out the bottom of Cote’s webpage to find the easter egg, and the access to Undercote’s page.
