Hidden behind an opaque red glow, Scarlet is an intimate cocktail lounge at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Serving upscale delicacies in a dramatically lit, red-hued 200 square-foot space, Scarlet is an exclusive space set to become one of Las Vegas’ most treasured hidden gems. A unique back bar showcases the unique infusions being created onsite. Red velvet drapery, flocked wallpaper, marble counter and candlelight add to the intimate experience.
The latest incarnation of Henry’s Tavern brings high energy to the heart of the Shops at Legacy in Plano. With 100 beers on tap, artisanal sandwiches, brick oven flatbreads, and homemade sausages that are already celebrated and enjoyed in the original Henry’s Tavern within an old brewery in Portland’s hip pearl district. A large bar, television screens throughout, comfortable leather booths, and warm accent lighting enhance the experience. A series of glass doors lead to a large outdoor patio where guests can delight in American grill fare with their friends and family. Several private dining areas make Henry’s the perfect place for a private event or business lunch or dinner.
Not only do signs draw in potential customers, they also act as a business’ first impression. At Bar Napkin Productions, we understand how crucial incorporating signage is to a brands marketing strategy and together with some of the top signage manufacturers in the country have created eye-catching, memorable signs for our clients. See some of our recent work below.

Social Media has made its way to the national stage once again this week in Aspen, CO at the annual Food and Wine Festival. A panel of several high profile chefs and restauranteurs gathered to discuss the importance and need of social media in the culinary industry, and its impact on the success of a restaurant and the instant feedback that is achieved through posts and discussions.
One local chef who has embraced the importance Social Media through Facebook, Twitter and a personal blog, “Justin Eats”, is chef Justin Becket of Beckett’s Table. He is able to keep his followers updated on the latest news and provide images of his beautiful creations in the kitchen daily and is able to respond immediately to both positive and negative feedback, allowing him to create the best restaurant experience for his diners. http://justineats.com/2010/10/28/now-open-becketts-table/ https://www.facebook.com/BeckettsTable
This week marks the last tour stop for our Couture dress as it traveled all the way to Chicago, IL for the annual NeoCon World’s Trade Fair. Mayer Fabrics — the manufacturer of our dress’ fabrics — is exhibiting their new products alongside 700+ other exhibitors at the fair, and they also wanted to show off some of the many create uses of their product. This year many local IIDA chapters across the country had similar Couture events, and Mayer Fabrics supplied the fabrics for several of those dresses. As a tribute to all of the beautiful outfits that were created in their fabrics, their showroom will showcase them, including our ‘Pret-a-Porter’ winner.
Prior to this week’s travels to Chicago, our winning dress made a pitstop at the new Stand Up Live and Copper Blues in downtown Phoenix, where it was proudly displayed with the other notable Couture dresses at the 2012 P.R.I.D.E. Awards. As our dress winds down its 2012 tour, we look forward to next year’s event.
