The Muse

The inspiration for The Thirsty Lawyer concept started, first and foremost, from the location itself. Strait Street is drenched with a chequered history of bars and exuberant nightlife entertainment, particularly popular with British servicemen during the war times, until it eventually started losing its shine a decade or two later.

The historical aura of the place, took us on an imaginative journey further back in time to the days of the prohibition era and speakeasies running bootlegging businesses in 1920s America. The era is also reminiscent and iconic for the short-lived art movement known as Art Deco. All these elements came gracefully woven together to inspire the design themes, interior spaces and general mood setting of The Thirsty Lawyer itself.
