This nearly 100-year-old building is being transformed from a beloved neighborhood liquor store into a 5,000 SF, full-service restaurant with a menu featuring contemporary Southern comfort food and an expansive whisky collection. Working closely with the City of Orange, The Orange Community Historical Society, the building owners and restaurant tenant, AO Architects crafted a design that pays homage to the past while representing the bold future of Bosscat Kitchen. Design inspiration is drawn from the prohibition-era building, blended with speakeasy culture, and given a modern twist to create a space that is authentic to both Old Towne Orange and Bosscat Kitchen, whose nearby Newport Beach location has become a staple of the community.
