Project

Enhancing the atmosphere of a famous club in town

The Sidecar bar and concert hall is where all the famous artists of the international music scene have been leaving their mark and this year, celebrates 30 years of life. Sidecar is the oldest hall of Barcelona with a constant program and continuous flow since its establishment, in 1982.

Throughout these years Sidecar, has formed a unique character and an innovative, fresh identity, alternative by definition. From this place, many artists who today fill large venues once took off.

For its 30th anniversary, the owner wished to ´dress-up´ Sidecar in a red `outfit´, tailored by the architect Alex Gimenez who, in 1998, started giving shape to Sidecar´s interiors.

Client: The Sidecar´s owner and his team had had almost everything ready for the important celebratory evening: the artists, the guests, the media, and the television; the only part that had been missing, was an interior renovation that would freshen up the place. The deadline for the SideCar´s renovation was one week.

In addition to this strict timeline, the bar would remain open every day during the works; therefore we created an accurate work planning schedule distributed to everyone involved in this project. We met the strict deadline successfully, making sure that the client and his property, would be ready for the important celebration.

Red: The SideCar Bar & concert hall has been identified with the red color throughout the years, which became its unofficial trademark. For the renovation, the client required maintaining its character and for this reason, the decision taken, was to highlight and intensify the Sidecar´s `absolute red´ image.

Lighting: The most important part of this intervention has been a suspended 10 m. long construction beam, which imposes a strong character to the bar. The lower side was fitted with a custom sized LED linear light, including three linear independent control channels and can be equipped DMX control.

In addition to the lower side, the upper side also includes two linear LED lines and all together project an intense but controlled red light throughout the space.

The `periscopic´ QR type light spots, hanged from the beam, include a dichroic filters of various colors in order to enhance and precisely highlight elements, such as the bar & the tables. The Dichroic filters allow excellent color control and create sublime color contrasts.

Another unique feature is the added iron shelves behind the bar. They bring to mind industrial extractors or the inner side of a factory chimney, effectively, the “Music Factory Sidecar”.
