Project Description

After a 39 year run as the historic Shawmut Inn, new owners revived the space to create Westside Social Tavern. The 135 seat restaurant (with an additional 40 seats in their outdoor patio) offers an open and comforting floorplan.

Rustic wood grain, brick accent wall, brushed metal bar-top, and warm lighting accents give the space a modern and casual feel. A mix of traditional and high-top seating allows flexibility between lunch and dinner services, as well as large parties and special events. Banquette seating and a social window between the indoor and outdoor patio spaces also provides a more diversified experience.

Orion Construction was able to provide a quick transformation of the space, on time and on budget.
