Authentic Mexican inspired designs blend with the grit of San Francisco to create a colorful, urban oasis.
Two locations already realized, and this Mexico City inspired restaurant continues to look towards expansion. Flores is meant to be a modern day cantina. We found inspiration from the natural beauty of the Tulum region and layered in an urban appeal that Mexico City offers. By incorporating flora and jungle-esque vibes alongside authentic patterned tiles, rattan pendant lights, and leather equipale chairs we were able to capture the true essence of what it feels like to transport yourself to Mexico. In using textural outdoor materials like wood siding, white stucco and cement floor tiles, the finishes are meant to feel lively, and to bring the outdoors up close and personal. The dark carving in the bar was a commissioned piece by Jesus Sosa, a native to Oaxaca who traveled to the US just to create this integral art piece for the space. The murals are also commissioned pieces completed by Marcial Cabada “AKA Machy,” a local Bay Area artist whose Mexican heritage runs deep. By combining authentic elements with modern touches, the spaces embody a lively energy that transcends the locations they are in.
