MICKY FINS BAR & GRILL

THE PROJECT

Micky Fins is a renowned restaurant situated in Ocean City, Maryland. Known for its delectable cuisine and captivating ambiance, the restaurant aims to provide an exquisite setting that captures the essence of coastal living. The management of Micky Fins sought to create an inviting atmosphere that seamlessly blended the indoor and outdoor spaces.

They desired a solution that would allow them to maximize the captivating bay views, enhance the dining experience, and maintain a comfortable environment year-round, so flexibility was key. To address these challenges, the restaurant collaborated with Evo-Doors to design 17 Evo-Vue doors, accompanied by 17 fixed panels positioned below each door.

OUR SOLUTION

The Evo-Vue single-panel linear actuator system, provided by Evo-Doors, was the perfect solution. The electric linear actuator system lifts the door without blocking the view, unlike cable or strap doors. The Evo-Vue includes integrated, low-profile weather seals to ensure comfort and satisfaction. The sleek and modern design of the doors seamlessly integrated with the restaurant's aesthetics, elevating its overall appearance.

The collaboration between Micky Fins and Evo-Doors resulted in a resounding success, transforming the restaurant into a destination that encapsulated the essence of coastal living. With the installation of 17 Evo-Vue doors and fixed panels, the establishment achieved the perfect balance between nature and comfort. The doors brought in fresh air, showcased the breathtaking bay views, and helped create an unforgettable and enchanting dining atmosphere.

BENEFITS

1.Versatility and Fresh Air

The installation of 17 Evo-Vue doors allowed Micky Fins to create a flexible environment that adapts to the changing weather. During the summer months, you can easily open the doors to invite fresh ocean air.

This feature enhanced the restaurant's year-round operational efficiency.

2. Unobstructed Views

One of the standout features of Evo-Vue doors is their ability to provide unobstructed views of the bay when opened. The linear actuator system provides the raw power needed to lift the door without cables or straps obstructing the view. Guests can enjoy the panoramic beauty of the bay, creating a truly immersive dining experience.

3. Enhanced Atmosphere 

The combination of Evo-Vue doors and fixed panels imbued the restaurant with a distinct ambiance. The seamless integration of the indoor and outdoor spaces created a unique and captivating atmosphere that perfectly complemented the coastal setting.

BEERHEAD BAR AND EATERY

THE PROJECT

Beerhead Bar & Eatery in Plano, Texas is famous for its delicious food, wide drink options, and welcoming atmosphere. Seeking to elevate its customer experience by incorporating innovative design elements, Beerhead partnered with Evo-Doors to find the best vertical openings for their needs. Many manufacturers build industrial hydraulic doors that can be slow-moving, loud, and prone to hazardous hydraulic fluid leaks, but Beerhead needed something better. The three Evo-Vue doors added both practicality and beauty to the restaurant's large outdoor seating area, attracting more customers.

OUR SOLUTION

The Evo-Vue single-panel linear actuator system, provided by Evo-Doors, was the perfect solution. The linear actuator system lifts the door without blocking the view unlike cables or straps doors. The Evo-Vue includes integrated, low-profile weather seals to ensure comfort and satisfaction. The sleek and modern design of the Evo-Vue doors seamlessly integrated with the restaurant's aesthetics, elevating its overall appearance.

The Evo-Vue doors had integrated screens that effectively kept insects at bay while allowing fresh air to circulate. Our solution allows the restaurant to adapt to various weather conditions, while it maintains the beloved cozy atmosphere that customers enjoy.

The implementation of Evo-Vue doors transformed Bearhead Bar & Eatery's dining experience, leading to several positive outcomes. According to the restaurant's management, Evo-Vue doors exceeded their expectations in achieving their desired atmosphere. Customers consistently praised the innovative setup, with many compliments directed toward the patio area's design and the engaging experience it offered.

BENEFITS

1.Year-Round Comfort

The installation of three Evo-Vue doors allowed Beerhead to create a flexible environment that adapts to the changing weather. During the summer months, the doors can be opened to allow fresh air to flow through, creating an open and airy atmosphere. During winter, Evo-Vue doors keep the inside warm and cozy by insulating well against the cold temperatures. This feature enhanced the restaurant's year-round operational efficiency.

2. Customer Attraction and Engagement

The doors acted as a visual magnet, capturing the attention of people passing by and inviting them to explore the restaurant's unique offerings. Additionally, customers became fascinated by the functionality and design of the doors, which served as a conversation starter. The seamless blending of indoor and outdoor spaces gave the restaurant a dynamic and inviting feel, catering to a diverse range of dining preferences.

3. Bar Top Seating

Among the three Evo-Vue doors installed, one is a shorter door that sits on a bartop area that can sit five people inside and five people outside, adding a creative seating solution for patrons when opened. This feature makes more room and improves the dining experience. It lets customers sit at a table with seating inside and outside.
