Center Stage | Branson, Missouri

To improve their customer’s experience and update the look of the facility, Branson Center Stage invested in dramatic renovations to the front of the restaurant by upgrading the front patio and adding a second patio along the east side of their facility. The owners also implemented many elements of the Complete Streets Master Plan for Highway 76, developing a new promenade and driveway crossings with new pedestrian access from the promenade to the restaurant. The front patio improvements include a new fireplace, generous landscaping and a lighted pergola.The new patio is nestled around the existing mature trees and surrounded with new heavy landscaping to create a cozy guest environment. This theme is enhanced by utilizing tree wrap lighting and cascading string lights as well as the existing lantern style fixtures that are present.
