Romantica Bar Decorative Frieze

Romantica Bar Decorative Frieze

Hours: 7
Location: Calgary

The decorative trim around the bar used to be white plaster, but would soak up so much yellow from nicotine that the owners had to refresh the paint eery 6 months. The bronze patina on the overhead frieze, the marbling on the pilasters and the cherry wood trim are all examples of decorative painting. Even with smoking (now not so much an issue) as the trim darkened the look would become more and more and more authentic.
