A new steakhouse, Jack & Charlie’s no.118, has opened within a historic stretch of Greenwich Avenue in New York’s West Village. Spread across 3,000 square feet, the 85-seat concept echoes the warm glamour of the city’s famed supper clubs through a design by Michael Aiduss and John Sherman of New Jersey-based Michael Aiduss Studio. “Our intention was to embrace the West Village and old New York’s speakeasy culture,” Aiduss says. “We wanted to create something that felt like it’s been there for a while.”

A teal palette characterizes the interior, while accents of unlacquered brass, antique mirrors, and aged wood floors infuse a sense of history. Banquettes wrapped in green English leather are installed before textured wallpaper panels and complemented by bistro-style tables and chairs.  “We took a lot of inspiration from English private clubs, English hotels and hotel lobbies, as well as French bistro culture,” Aiduss adds. “We tried to mix those aesthetics—making it sophisticated without being pretentious.”

Modern geometric marble flooring contrasts the aged wood in the Bar Room to balance the design with diversity and instill a sense of grandeur. Across the railroad layout, the Astor Room boasts a fireplace, as well as a large custom light fixture that echoes 1950s Italy at the intersection of classic and contemporary. The Oyster Room includes views of the restaurant’s raw bar and wood-burning oven as well.
