The Gettysburg Hotel enlisted the design services of Baskervill, an international full-service architectural and interior design firm, to completely renovate and re-design the restaurant (and hotel) in 2013. The space was enlarged, but maintained the tavern feel with warm lighting and a fireplace showpiece with a communal high top table. The room features custom, historical touches such as a Gettysburg Address wall graphic, and the classic wooden Van Tromp bar in the lounge area – a direct import from Brick Lane, England. The space also pays homage to Abraham Lincoln and the copper penny with a pressed-tin copper ceiling, warm wood tone flooring and a copper pot art installation created using 100 pots of different sizes and styles. The menu even incorporates some of Abraham Lincoln’s favorite foods, such as apples, cheese and chicken fricassee.
Formerly “McClellan’s Tavern”, One Lincoln now accommodates 101 guests and offers al fresco patio seating during the warmer months. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are available, and are updated regularly with seasonally focused ingredients, alongside unique desserts, prepared daily.
