Sit & Sip


Sit & Sip, a new bar and dining experience for Wokingham is situated in the newly developed Peach Palace, a modern shopping and leisure development in the heart of the town. Having undergone an in-depth refurbishment in a unique, refined rustic manner using stylish reclaimed and industrial materials, the site is now a great place to catch up with friends and family.

Sit & Sip specialises in craft beers and artisan gin but there is also a wide range of wine, spirits and soft drinks available. It has a tasting room concept, so you can try the latest flavours and products on offer then buy in store. 

Bespoke bottle displays were created to showcase their different types of liquor and beer brands. They grab the attention of guests whilst creating a fun way of segregating the lounge from the bar. 

As Peach Palace was a new development, the site was a blank canvas to mark with the Sit & Sip brand. We used teal furniture and paint to ensure the site was on-brand but these colours are also excellent for creating intimate and romantic settings, perfect for a bar of this nature. 

The varying shades of blue were combined with an earthy colour palette seen on the feature wood cladding on the walls, leather tub chairs and the framed artwork on the walls. 

Centrally, a large, bespoke bar captivates patrons with its rustic look, brightly lit displays and distinct Sit & Sip branded mosaic bar apron. The bar has a vintage feel and again embraces an earthy colour palette - these are colours commonly found in nature and create a relaxed and welcoming environment, like cafes or trendy restaurants.  

The lounge area features a selection of casual, loose furniture to allow Sit & Sip to reconfigure the space to suit the varying events such as Tap Takeovers. Sofas and tub chairs feature predominantly as they are comfortable enough for guests to sit in for a significant length of time whilst enjoying a drink from the bar or listening to an expert talk. 

The new boutique bar and bottle shop also has a superb outdoor space. Distinguishing the space are portable planters painted in teal. Hardwearing metal chairs combined with slatted benches and tables add further covers to what is expected to be a very popular city centre bar.

Finally, the loos were reconfigured to have a lobby area and also include baby change & a fully accessible WC.

Overall, Sit & Sip brings a funky lounge vibe to the heart of the town, making it a great place to catch up with friends and family.
