Shhh… speakeasy

Angels' Share Cocktailbar


Chutz Stamm and Roger Grüter opened the «Angels’ Share Cocktailbar» back in November 2015. The cocktailbar is located in the Kleinbasel «Bermuda-Triangle» and is, compared to the surrounding bars, not a party bar, but a relaxed bar with a warm atmosphere. Besides various cocktails the «Angels’ Share Cocktailbar» also offers an exquisite whiskey and rum assortment. On the small, monthly changing cocktail-menu you’ll find existing recipes, classics and signatures. But the two mixologists also shake and stir cocktails to the customer’s heart’s content.

We at SWIWI Design had the opportunity to create the branding and graphic elements to match the elegant speakeasy-style of the Golden Twenties. Beside the bar’s logo; business cards and the cocktail menu were designed also. In order to meet the dimmed room’s atmosphere, we used thick black paper for all the printing products. Two different printing processes adore the business card: white ink for the logo and information and spot gloss for the twenties-inspired line-design. Since Chutz and Roger replace their drinks menu monthly, an easily editable Word-Template was created for the inside pages. A black cover with spot gloss varnish and a leather strap are holding the cocktail menu together.

The «Jigger» is the measuring cup of a mixologist and is certainly known by every hobby-barman. To promote the exclusive pre-opening and the press event this iconic work-tool was specifically placed on the invites to give the impression of a bow tie. The invitations were then sent out in black envelopes.
