The Rose Café has re-opened their back patio with a fresh remodel by Venice Design Studio DEX. DEX Studio, composed entirely of Venice residents, is the design group responsible for such local spots as The Alibi Room, Melisse and now the Rose Café. The area they worked over is an extension of the self-service seating found inside the restaurant and will stay open when the Café starts serving dinner later this summer.
As part of an on-going remodel at Rose, DEX designed the back patio around an old-growth Coral tree that has been a part of restaurant’s history since it opened in 1979. It includes a series of decks with custom-designed redwood benches built into a vertical screen of magaris wood slats that wrap up the structural framework. The space is perfect for a morning coffee or grabbing a snack on a breezy night alongside the newly-installed fire-pit. DEX also designed the Café’s parking-side façade with new landscaping, an updated color palette, soon-to-be installed signage, and innovative bike racks.
