A hub for the revitalized Midtown Bozeman district, the Ponderosa Social Club is the premier place to dine, drink, and play. Elevated yet unpretentious, it fuses upscale, casual dining and cocktail bars with bowling, billiards, and entertainment in a welcoming, connected social space.
In collaboration with the owners and stakeholders, A&E Design created this unique brand and wove it through every element. From menus and experiential graphics to the thoughtful layout and warm interior, the holistic approach creates an immersive experience for guests.
The materiality contrasts rough reclaimed wood and exposed brick with polished stone bar tops to create a western elegance reflective of Montana. Chic floor-to-ceiling windows and a double-sided fireplace in the billiards space contribute to the classy, rugged feel reminiscent of a day spent at a mountain ranch. Lighting contrasts throughout help define each unique space. A massive, u-shaped bar encourages social engagement, and the swanky dining area offers both traditional and lounge seating to suit any occasion. Vibrant upholstery on the curated furnishing lends a comfortable yet playful vibe.
