Mixology Lab at the George Brown College School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts

The new Mixology Lab at George Brown Chef School allows for an interactive hands-on experience for bar tending training. The classroom accommodates up to 28 students with custom counters, built in lighting, hand, and ice sinks. At the front of the room, the instructor’s demonstration counter includes a shelf lit from below to display the spectrum of colourful bottles. Contrasted by the minimal white counters, the use of birch adds warmth to the crisp interior. The colour from the deep red accent wall diffuses throughout the classroom, through the translucent panels and the counters themselves. To encourage dialogue between the two activities, the Mixology Lab shares storage with the adjacent Wine Lab. In order to minimize costs and waste, the lab was designed to reuse as much of the existing plumbing in space as possible.
