Cantina Monarca Restaurant & Tequila Bar

Location: Bellevue

General contractor: Bayley Construction

Cantina Monarca is a 2,428-square-foot restaurant and high-end tequila bar installed in an existing tenant space on the ground floor of Lincoln Square South in downtown Bellevue.

The owner selected Gulla Jonsdottir, an interior design firm from Los Angeles, to develop and execute the conceptual design for the project, with Ferguson Architecture as the architect of record. Bayley Construction was selected as the general contractor to finish construction just after demolition of the existing tenant space was complete.

This complex project included extensive demolition of the existing restaurant space and comprehensive installation of new systems, casework, finishes and kitchen equipment. Unique challenges inherent to the restaurant’s concept included pervasive compound framing and finishes, complex fire and life-safety coordination for the interior wood cladding specifications and details, and intricate detailing and installation for required mechanical, electrical and fire sprinkler functionality within the wood and agave ceiling assemblies.
