Port Fonda is a unique dining experience that blends together a modern interpretation of a traditional Mexican Cantina with a bit of Old Western Kansas. The color scheme and warm lighting creates a cozy amber glow, inviting people to take note of the hand glazed tile, stained concrete floors, and blackened metal accents that give the space a rustic feel –juxtaposed with clean lines of stainless steel and rift sawn oak.  The bars, server stations, and niches were designed with ideal function and durability in mind. In keeping with the iconic marquee letters at Port Fonda’s first location in Westport, we updated the marquee for the Lawrence location, acting as a touchstone visible from all angles within the space.
