The Gettys Group worked with the owner of a two-story warehouse space to create Ormsby’s, a classic neighborhood tavern in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood. With a budget of about $2 million, we turned this new construction into a warm and comfortable gathering spot with a classic speakeasy feel.



The Pulse by Gettys team worked to create a sophisticated speakeasy pub atmosphere that would bridge the gap between empty-nesters and young families. Our design showcases the building materials and industrial finishes, making for a stylish and active space. The main floor features tabletops inlaid with checker boards. The downstairs is set up for more gaming, with shuffleboard, bocce courts, pool tables and darts.

The owner’s initial plans for a local watering hole shifted to a two-level restaurant, bar and game lounge upon discovering the hidden gem of the basement space. The Pulse team made this great opportunity a reality, earning Ormsby’s a fond place in the neighborhood and recognition in Atlanta Magazine as one of the 50 Best Bars of 2014.
