Description: 

BanQ gets its name from its location in the former Penny Savings Bank, which had been abandoned years earlier. The architects saw promise and a new life for this small, but sturdy structure. Customers enter through a double hung bronze door to an elegant full bar.  Beyond the bar is the dinning area, substantial in both size and design. Plyboo Neapolitan was used extensively on this project for the bar area, dining booths, seating and tabletops. Neapolitan flooring was also used to play against the wild ceiling structure.
