Zephyr Wine Bar features Ancient Coast.
Zephyr Wine Bar features Michael Letts' painting Ancient Coast.
Opened in August 2016, the new Zephyr Wine Bar in downtown Marquette, Michigan features the 6 x 15 foot painting "Ancient Coast" as the central feature in its interior decor. Drawing on the tradition of murals behind the bar that can be found in historic Upper Peninsula taverns like the Ambassador in Houghton or the Michigan House in Calumet. But the sleek and clean design of the Zephyr is thoroughly contemporary, with the shapes and textures of surfaces and fixtures chosen with an eye to continuity with the abstract UP forest space of the painting. Marquette now has a space to enjoy fine wines and food in a contemporary setting inspired by the great tradition of UP spaces.
