Raleigh’s first cidery, East Bower Cider Company was started by three friends with a background in hospitality and the craft beer industry. Their vision was to create an eclectic experience that paired well with their desire for experimentation in creating Dry to Semi-Dry Ciders. All of their ciders are made in-house, using apples located within a 350-mile radius.

We leaned into this idea of creating a local getaway, an oasis. The 2,600 sf tenant improvement consists of a bar, lounge, a full production facility, and a 3,000 sf outdoor courtyard. A vibrant green coats the existing steel structure, forming a canopy within the tall volume. The bar is anchored between tapered steel columns and is skinned in a durable corrugated metal. Warm wood tones, coral accents, and lush plant life soften and complement the space.

East Bower is crafted but not too distilled. From your first step into the courtyard to your last sip, the experience will make you want to send a postcard home to share the good vibes.
