The current trend of adding a bit of architectural history within interiors has another update in Harlem with the arrival of exposed beams within some of the new hot spots uptown.  Pressed tin ceilings are always a nice nod to the past but a more rustic exposed ceiling can also add charm to space and a whole lot of character.  Chai Wali on Lenox Avenue, Sugar Hill Cafe on 145th Street, and Mountain Bird at Tasting Tables on 110th Street are prime examples of how this design detail really works within older spaces.  Mess Hall on 8th Avenue had a bit of challenge since the original details within the 100 year old commercial storefront had all been removed sometimes in the past but the owners used salvaged antique wood to create the look of the antique ceiling support structure within.
