I wanted to thank Jennifer Epstein, an owner of one of Bostons’ hottest eateries – The Beehive – for hosting my women’s business group The Downtown Women’s Club tonight. Over 35 savvy business woman were treated to amazing appetizers and a fabulous atmosphere. It may have been cold and rainy out, but it was cozy inside. This two level space in Boston’s South End is right next to the Boston Center for the Arts at the Cyclorama. The Beehive takes its inspiration from La Ruche (French for The Beehive) an artist residence in 1920’s Montparnasse that was a three story circular building that resembled a beehive (similar to the Cyclorama). Fittingly, the interior space has been decked out with original art – such as the handmade bars and reclaimed materials such as the amazing iron balustrades (above).
This is a closeup above I took of a section of the bar, which was made from all reclaimed pieces of wood. I love this whimsical illustration.
Here are some images from The Beehive’s website.
