Post Mount Lights Provide Vintage Style to Restaurant Lighting

On a recent trip through the funky little coastal town of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, we enjoyed a fabulous fried grouper sandwich and some sweet tea at Creek Ratz, a local joint that specializes in fresh seafood, cold beer, and some wonderful industrial lighting. We showed you in a previous blog how galvanized industrial warehouse pendants complete with a red wire cage are used to highlight the bar area with rustic style.

Barn Light Pendants Add Rustic Touch to Swine Dining

Nothing says fine dining like barbequed ribs hot from the smoker. Or make that swine dining. And nobody does swine dining like Okie Dokies Smokehouse in Swannanoa, North Carolina. We checked out the exterior lighting at Okie Dokies in a previous blog, but today we’re taking a peek at some recent renovations inside. Now, in addition to the rustic sconces on the exterior of their building, Okie Dokies has some bright and shiny barn pendant lights highlighting their remodeled dining area.

Goosenecks Add Just the Right Angle to Outdoor Signage

gooseneck_angle_shade_sign_lighting-244x300.jpgTake a step back in time to the carefree days of the early 1960s when Camelot was in its heyday, the Rat Pack ruled, and there was a certain swanky style to restaurants around the country.

Deep Bowl Restaurant Light

Unique Gooseneck Lighting For Your Restaurant


The overwhelming success of traditional warehouse shades has caused an increased demand for gooseneck lighting on the outside of numerous businesses and restaurants. This is due to the fact that they are fully customizable and in most cases Dark Sky compliant, meeting specific states’ requirements for outdoor lighting codes. With so many restaurants choosing typical warehouse shades to accentuate their buildings, the desire to break from the pack becomes a necessity. Realizing the need to set their steakhouse apart from other competing restaurants in the area, this southwestern grill decided on the perfect fit for their rustic décor and menu. Looking down any side of this building a long line of galvanized Deep Bowl Warehouse Shades on HL-A Gooseneck Arms become obvious. The galvanized deep basin of this particular light brings together the extended roofline and muted earth tones that surround this Texas themed restaurant. The longer shade height, rounded appearance, and finish become a functional accent, shedding a reflective light upon the tin roof and siding. This is more apparent at nightfall with the rich mixture of color that is highlighted by the moonlit sky, causing a soft glow of light to envelop the outside of this building. You can recreate this look with our large list of American made Gooseneck Lighting that represent every possible style imaginable when paired with 38 gooseneck arm options to insure a unique fit for your application.
