Belle & James is a French-American eatery in the heart of Richmond’s Financial Distric.t. The concept for the bar was to create an intimate dining experience surrounded in luxury while paying homage to the Belle Isle and James River in Richmond, VA. The overall color palette is a blend of brown, gold, and purple to create a warm and engaging atmosphere. The 30' back lit honey onyx bar where you can get a hand crafted cocktail is a breathtaking centerpiece for all to enjoy . At the heart of the restaurant a hand made custom tile mural features famous actress Brigitte Bardot the French former actress, singer, and fashion model of the 1950's and 1960's.
APEX Studios is honored to have been a part of the collaborative design, custom millwork, and procurement for this project.
