The space

316 W Geer St, Suite A
Durham, North Carolina 27701

We are designing LouElla to be an open and casual space with some hideaways to slip into when you want a little more privacy. I have called in a lifetime's worth of favors to get the space exactly as I envision it. My brother Trey Davis has been a huge help. Trey is a contractor out of Fairhope, Alabama where I am originally from. Jennifer Noone is working with me on the design and sourcing some incredible North Carolina lumber for the bar top and shelving. Carpenter Evan Wittels out of Cary does amazing work and has been essential in putting all my crazy ideas together.

We have sanded down the original flooring to showcase its beauty and character from 80 years of wear. My pet project has been to build the bar top out of planks of ambrosia maple. This stuff is so beautiful. The wall and back bar are built with live-edge cedar, poplar, and some of the old floor joists. These joists are true 2x12 inch pine and original to the building. I love having that little bit of the building's history throughout the space.
