Inspired by the warm hospitality of coastal Portugal, Baleia brings a bright Mediterranean vibe that perfectly complements its small plates and cocktails menu. Colorful tile, arched openings, knotted rope details, and textured walls pair with a bold lighting installation featuring a copper chain “net.”

RODE’s design also simplified the lines of the space’s ceiling to create two distinct divisions: a grand, full-height formal dining area and a cozy, intimate bar area.
