St. Jardim is a sundrenched daytime café on an unassuming corner of west 4th street in the West Village. In the evenings the space transforms into a natural wine bar, beckoning regulars and those who stumble upon it with a warm glow and a friendly bartender.
We wanted St Jardim to feel inextricably woven into the fabric of the neighborhood – like it had been there forever. Nothing is meant to feel perfect. The bar front was constructed first of hand bent copper, left vulnerable to the richness of the verdigris patina that overcame it. Seating and accessories were vintage and left as they were found. The plaster on the walls was hand troweled. We insisted the maker leave their mark.
St Jardim opened Spring 2021.
