Inside Session Kitchen

When the owners of Session Kitchen in Denver opened in late October, they aimed to create a new way of dining. Adding a twist to traditional tapas, they zeroed in on the idea of consumers spending time together and sharing new foods through a “portion revolution” in which communal dishes are tailored to any number of diners. The idea: guests define their own experience, or session. To design a space that matched this mission, Creative Concept Director Lisa Ruskaup created three distinct areas under the same roof—each with its own vibe, but all drawing inspiration from the community. Using lighting to enhance the experience, she chose features to boost dine-in time and drive revenue. The result: a one-of-a-kind food and art space that reinforces the notion of gathering.
