Smart Bar

At the centre of Pukekohe’s nightlife scene lives Smart Bar, an iconic night club dedicated to entertaining the locals of Franklin and its visitors for many years. An older building, the owner‘s brief was to ensure that the original facade remained untouched, with the entire interior to be rebuilt, drawing on design inspiration from the 1960s television comedy show Get Smart. The original structure was also on a significant lean and had to be reinforced to prevent further movement.
