The Savoy is transforming its famous forecourt into a 1920s-inspired pop-up bar for the first time in its 130-year history.
Solas – Gaelic for light, joy and comfort – is inspired by the historic London hotel’s Art Deco and Edwardian appearance and celebrates the spirit of the Roaring Twenties.
The centrepiece of the pop-up is an enormous five-metre-wide chandelier inspired by the 62 grand lights that grace the interior of The Savoy. The showstopping artwork will send rays of light across the forecourt from suspended shards of crystal.
Solas is open until June 21st so there’s just a few months to enjoy cocktails in this beautiful space.
