Just a few months after debuting in the St. Louis market, the Rock Hill outpost of the Slider House is already making a splash with its miniature sandwiches. But while the gourmet sliders and thoughtful appetizer selection served by this Nashville-based chain were bound to wow local diners, few could have anticipated how dazzling the place’s looks would be. Done in a charcoal and white color scheme, the Slider House has a modern-meets-rugged vibe — a Texas saloon designed by Restoration Hardware. The leather booths and cattle motif (including a steer head that hangs over the bar) are a little bit country; the grey brick, exposed ductwork and massive, industrial-style ceiling fans are a little bit rock and roll. When weather permits, the glassed-in garage doors open up to create an inviting indoor-outdoor aesthetic. For a place that specializes in small food, the Slider House went big when it came to design.
