Location: Oakland, CA
With today's highly competitive restaurant scene, restaurant owners know that the need to offer more than just a great plate of food in order to attract and keep guests. Duende, located in Oakland, California was crated with this in mind and offers a bit for everyone.
Located in a historic Art Deco building, the interior utilizes graphics and patterns to bridge the deco exterior and industrial nature of the space.
The large interior utilizes large amounts of worn wood and exposed brick to balance out the saturated and geometric murals.
I love that while the space is large in scale, the warmth and amount of detail keep it warm and unimposing.
