Visually Immersive Experience in North Dallas Café
Location: Civil Pour: A Coffee & Beer Ruckus, Dallas, Texas
Project Type: countertop, wall
Founded by the creators of the Big Texas Beer Fest, Civil Pour is the ultimate Dallas destination to drink quality coffee, experience local beer and savor baked goods made fresh daily. Starting at 6 a.m., guests line up outside the doors to get their hands on a steaming coffee and toasted breakfast pastry. This rush continues until lunchtime as guests begin to place orders for the shop’s famous paninis. As the sun sets, the spot welcomes its final crowd – all eagerly thirsting for a craft beer from one of the 30 signature taps.
Determined to create an immersive experience for guests, Montgomery reached out to Daltile early in the design process. Since a space pouring both beer and coffee presented design challenges to ensure the surfaces could withstand the inevitable spills, Montgomery knew the space would require a special countertop solution.
“I loved working with Daltile,” said Montgomery. “The fact that I could drive down and grab samples to take to the shop was invaluable, and helped put my mind at ease before construction even began. I had Daltile reps checking in on me throughout construction, and any questions I had, they were either able to [answer] or refer me to someone that could help.”
“This project is a testament to these great products,” added Voss. “They really demonstrate their worth since they are used all day, every day. Overall, these materials were more manageable to work with and it is a joy to see the end result.”
In addition to the stunning bar counter and surfaces, Civil Pour is filled with bold Daltile wallcoverings that distinguish the shop from others in the area. Obsessed with creating unusual scenes, the Montgomery duo feature the Multitude™ collection on the back wall and Opulence™ mosaic tile behind the painting of Frida Kahlo.
