Bar > B > Q

The team at Olde Towne Partners had a dream to bring a unique barbecue concept to Columbus. Cue Black Ink. We were given [2] potential names and asked to, 'design an aesthetic around these.' [flashback to the old Kohler faucet commercials!]  What resulted, after design development and research, was a more feminine and unexpected approach to barbecue complementing the name, 'Pecan Penny's'. Coral and turquoise hues are peppered throughout the space. A cool neutral palette leads the aesthetic to allow the food to shine. Walls of crisp tile are softened by white-washed wood. Subtle nods to the former occupant and Columbus staple, Ray Johnson's Seafood Market, are seen throughout the space. The atmosphere is fun, friendly and full of contagious energy. The craft cocktails and smokin' good BBQ are a must-try!

" Black Ink was amazing to work with, from early conceptional planning through project completion and everything in between. Adrienne’s ideas are innovative and well thought-out. Black Ink helped develop Pecan Penny’s identity throughout the project, and we couldn’t be happier with the final product - a perfect blend of 50’s diner meets modern day Bar-B-Q."
