Project Description:
Designed by local architecture and interior design firm //3877, King Street Oyster Bar was conceived to put the art of oyster shucking at the forefront of D.C.’s vibrant dining scene. Fusing notes of traditional coastal aesthetics with a multifaceted floor plan that supports four distinct guest experiences, including an open kitchen at the space’s center, the eatery effortlessly imbues a lively atmosphere. The central open kitchen-style bar offers plentiful seating and a live look at the oyster bar’s expert shuckers gearing up delectable selects. The area is further enhanced by an eye-catching canopy made complete with an Instagramable Oyster sign to appeal to the eatery’s social media savvy guests. Seventeen-foot high ceilings allow for on-theme pendant lighting featuring fisherman’s rope to illuminate the King Street Oyster Bar’s many seating areas, which include communal high-top tables for casual fare and banquettes that anchor the space.

Mirroring the shell’s palatable designs, a design wall featuring oysters shucked at other King Street Oyster Bar locations thoughtfully weaves a cohesive brand narrative together. The theme is continued within the bathroom spaces, which feature custom fish scale mosaic walls.
