I have a location in my story that is a key central hub which much of the interaction surrounds. An example of this might be the bar in Cheers or Greendale Community College in Community. I want to really make this location stick out in the reader's minds when it is first introduced, as the story is going to keep coming back to it over and over again, but this tactic is creating problems.
Namely, it results in the setting, a building on a college campus, being described to the point at which it feels overindulgent. The draft I have gets way too into the layout of the building because it's going to keep showing up again over and over again in the story and I don't want to break the flow to re-describe it, but upon editing its clear it places way too much focus on something the reader has yet to become invested in, and thus gets bored.
The specific location itself is not something a lot of readers encounter in their everyday lives, so I really want to get across the feel of immersion for a type of place most people wouldn't get to experience.
How would I go about describing a key set piece to make it really stick in readers' minds, and how do I do this without going into gratuitous detail and boring them?
