The project consisted of a remodel of the original Michael’s Restaurant & Bar (now Drift) and the exterior terrace seating area adjacent to the motor court. The scope of work included demolition, concrete, misc metals, new casework and stone countertops, waterproofing, doors, glazing, new partitions and ceilings, FRP, floor finishes, painting, signage, and fire sprinklers along with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades. Inspired by the San Diego coast and surf culture, Drift embodies this natural aesthetic in the space with light wooden accents and bright colored fabrics. A warm and inviting space for all visiting and staying at the Hyatt Aventine hotel.
