“We repurposed solid walnut doors from an old YMCA in Knoxville to create the rich paneled wall. Frank’s extensive collection of vintage photographs of his family and Italian heritage have been custom-framed with brass plates to tell the story of the Gambuzza family and their journey to America. The waiting area features dart boards, a billiards table, custom game tables and an antique stained-glass window installed as a skylight, all of which add to the club-like atmosphere.”
