Pop-UP Beach Bar

After the success of the pop-up Soho Alpine Bar at Christmas, our clients, Soho, managed to secure an 8 week lease in an empty New Look Shop in Saxon Square Christchurch. We had one week’s notice after the licence was agreed to turn the empty concrete shell into a pop-up summer beach bar worthy of the Caribbean! The interiors were built from scratch, bar complete with boardwalk.

Plenty of bamboo on a roll, murals of wallpaper with a hibiscus pattern, surf boards & travel posters adorn the walls. The projector shows old movies and surfers on a large white wall. We used an old rowing boat from Christchurch Quay for seating and made benches in longboard shapes. Tall poser tables are made from oil drums. We gave up counting how many wheelbarrows of sand completed the look.
