Balancing bar, retail, design studio and social comfort and distancing, I am ever grateful for the amazing JDB team and my clients and customers. So many of you have asked how you can help and it’s as simple as your purchase of retail items and use of design services helps to keep our bar OPEN. 


Please review our health and safety guidelines.    


THANK YOU for your amazing support -  Be safe, stay healthy and be good to each other. We love you.  

Jules and the JDB team



In late 2018, she officially opened Jules Design Bar under the same roof as her studio, Julie Smith Design and Retail, serving up cocktails in a European-inspired atmosphere featuring crisp black and white details, crystal chandeliers, a long bar topped by a steel counter and sofa-style seating. Now customers can browse a variety of edgy yet timeless offerings—including lighting, furniture, art and accessories—all while enjoying a signature “Jules” Old Fashioned, craft cocktail

"Great atmosphere! If you like home decor and sipping on a cocktail...don’t miss out! The owner is very welcoming and such a delight to get to know. I’m hoping to make this my local bar & become a regular. Thanks Jules!"


"Great lounge-style atmosphere featuring hand-crafted cocktails, fine wine, and attentive service in a retail space specializing in architectural and interior design. Enjoy Julie's holiday style take on the old-fashioned while relaxing with friends in a "suave, nostalgic, downtown environment, evocative of a more graceful era, conveniently located close to home."


" amazing experience that just unfolded without effort.  I stopped by to visit my friend Jules and met the most amazing people with the greatest intentions.  Julie is an absolute expert with experience, Architecture and design.  Yes this is a bar, but that's secondary ...people come here for the connection to art, emotion and intention.  This is an absolute treasure if you contribute yourself to the experience!"    -Pam 5 stars
