Located in a new building block at the top of the high street with a residential development above, the 650sq ft tasting venue was a blank canvas waiting for Concorde to bring it to life. The transformation of the venue included a new bar and shelving to cater for Sit & Sip’s delightful craft beer range, a new back of house area and a 28-cover seating area. Bespoke, turquoise leather fixed and loose seating offsets the vintage wooden tables making a real funky statement.
The décor has been strongly influenced by the brands quirkiness and the trend for upcycling with lots of natural wooden cladding, metallic touches and re-upholstered leather booths mixed with real wood flooring and ‘thrift shop’ finds. The walls are decorated with a collection of canvases, pictures, wall art, mirrors, photo frames and customised artwork such as the ‘Beer Street’ and ‘Gin Lane’ signs created by Concorde’s branding team.
Throughout the bar the furniture and fittings create a stylish industrial feel with lots of quirky design features to look out for including the bars apron which is a bespoke mosaic tile with the Sit & Sip logo printed onto it. Adorning the exterior of the building with stylish wooden cladding, a fresh coat of paint and newly fitted large feature windows has added a sense of space and light creating a warm and welcoming feel inside.
Sit & Sip’s boutique bar gives customers the chance to discover new drinks from around the globe and with the popularity of craft beer and artesian spirits booming, it’s bound to be a roaring success.
