Construction on the Margarita & Tequila bar renovation is underway!
General Contractor Speigelglass Construction Co. of Maryland Heights worked with Hacienda on the bar renovation. Also involved was Jermain Todd, owner of Mwanzi, a sustainable woodworking company based in St. Louis. Todd refinished pine siding salvaged from a century-old barn in nearby Gerald, Mo. and used it to clad the bar façade and two, floor-to-ceiling accent walls.
“What excites me most about the bar renovation, is that it allows us, as a company, to give back to the loyal customers who have made Hacienda what it is for more than four decades, while also giving a new generation of regulars something to call their own.”
-Andrew Iqbal, General Manager
Behind the rustic bar, a state-of-the-art tequila display showcases an expanded collection of carefully curated blanco, reposado and anejo tequilas in a kaleidoscope of ornate bottles. Overhead, acoustical ceiling tiles made from recycled metal provide high light reflectance to reduce the number of light fixtures needed, curbing the energy consumed by the bar’s upgraded, energy-efficient LED lighting. And throughout the space, low- and no-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints and finishes mean cleaner indoor air for the bar’s customers.
Sustainable materials being used:
- Reclaimed barn wood
- Corian – Sorrel
- No / Low VOC paints
- All new lighting – all energy efficient
- LEED Certified acoustical ceilings
- Environmentally friendly metallic ceiling over bar area – made from at least 50% recycled material
- Door table – using re-claimed door for table and reclaimed wood & iron for base
- Using some recycled Talavera tiles (hand painted Mexican tiles)
