Le Mary Celeste

OYSTERS, COCKTAILS, & TAPAS

Le Mary Celeste is an oyster and cocktail bar in the Marais neighborhood of Paris. Formerly a video editing office, we tore the space back to its bare bones and built from there. Tons of brick was reclaimed from building sites for the walls and floor while wood palates, formerly used for shaping cement forms, were repurposed for the bar top and deck flooring surrounding the bar and custom-built furniture was designed (including slatted backlit banquettes, modular hex tables, and barstools).

Glass

STRONG DRINKS & LOUD MUSIC

Glass is a bar in the Pigalle neighborhood of Paris. We completely demolished/removed the former bar (a fillé) structure and started from scratch designing the space, bar, dj booth and all of the furniture as well as the identity/logo. We also found several artists to collaborate with on the space including Andere Mondo, who created the mirrored table surfaces.

Le Depanneur

TACOS & TEQUILA

For decades, the restaurant and bar Le Depanneur was a veritable institution in the heart of the Montmartre district, near the theaters, cabarets and the ever-popular Moulin Rouge. After being shuttered for years, Weekends, along with project manager and designer Gilles Tombeur, helped resurrect the space. The resulting restaurant is equal parts Palm Springs and Big Sur and featur es a menu of organic burgers, tacos pr ovided by Cantine California and Paris’ largest tequila list.

About Us.

Cheri Messerli / David Rager

Though initially dedicated to side projects and collaborations, Weekends was originally a space where the circles in the Venn diagram of David and Cheri's working lives overlapped, where projects outside of their separate design practices collided and were worked on often, as the name suggests, on the weekends. Since moving to paris in 2009, Weekends has quickly become weekdays and often (again) weekends, and a space where the two share their love of design, interiors, furniture and art through projects fueled by a collaborative fire.
