Union East and Drinks


Union East and Drinks opened for business in 2019 as an early harbinger of the reemergence of Gander International Airport as a true community hub. Like its food, the name and design influences are locally born. The original Union East was a small and vibrant community located east of the Gander Airport in the 1940’s.

The Breakhouse design team leaned on simplicity to create the visual identity, referencing aviation in a way that everyone gets. The signage and environmental graphics package pulls from the new Gander Int’l airport branding as well as artifacts dug from the rich well of Gander stories. The interior design marries a classic, approachable feel with thoroughly contemporary finishes and form.

Our hats off to Reg Wright, CEO of Gander Int’l Airport for coming up with the name. Nailed it!
