Tucked within the first floor of the newly completed David Rubenstein Forum building along the University's south campus, barDAVID is a quaint dining experience with an elegant twist on campus dining.  Developed to support the Forum's clientele, the restaurant also serves the neighborhood elevating it's precense within.  A semi-custom 640 pendant chandelier extends throughout the three main dining areas with carefully curated decorative lighting moments tucked throughout the 1,900sf wine bar.  Integrated lighting controls paired alongside the building's main lighting control system allow for a seamless look both inside and out regardless of time of day or function.
