Sugar Shack Donut & Coffee Shop + Captain Gregory’s Speakeasy

Alexandria, VA

Sugar Shack is located at 804 N. Henry St., Alexandria, VA.  This project consists of 2,200 SF tenant build-out on the ground floor of a larger mixed-use & residential complex. The build-out includes the design of commercial kitchen, coffee shop equipment, retail area, accessible restrooms and Captain Gregory’s Speakeasy bar hidden behind a sliding wall. ALine provided professional services for the design, permit drawings and construction administration through project completion.

Working on this first Sugar Shack project, presented us with a great opportunity for growth and learning, and became a rich experience, as we went through the program development, understanding the kitchen flow specific to these production processes, creating and utilizing fully loaded floor plans for maximum retail display, customer line queuing, branding, integrating art and budgets, addressing the accessibility conditions, addressing sound control considerations, sustainability and more. The reclaimed wood textured walls and the suspended donut art complement the orange accents of the space and embraced the warmth of this unique retail, topped with comforting fresh smells of coffee and hand-made donuts.
