Juan Jimenez had a dream to create a simple donut and coffee house on State St. here in Santa Barbara. In a time when most restaurants are moving towards complicated and expensive items Juan wanted to provide inexpensive and accessible food for everyone. We helped Juan update the interior of this restaurant space and thru the permitting process. Now tasty donuts can be found here along with coffee and soda. Our favorite is the blueberry but go and try a few and decided for yourself!
We are proud to announce that Modern Times Beer is now open on State St. in Santa Barbara. This completes the last piece of the puzzle for our Kims Service Dept. project located at 418 State St. Modern Times joins Shaker Mill, Cubaneo and Gear to create a destination multi-tenant project that has something for everyone.
Modern Times serves great beer but they also offer wine, coffee and incredible vegan food from their kitchen. The interior design is a combination of sleek and colorful with a backdrop of weird and wacky elements.
Our bar design wraps around the tap wall and extends outside thru the folding door creating a great connection to the outdoor patio. Outside you can sit at the bar or a variety of seating options while you drink a beer and eat with friends. You can see the before and after images below. The first time we visited this space we could see the potential hidden behind years of junk and misuse. All the original textures and materials were there we just needed to bring the space to life
