London’s latest pop-up has a science influence and is the brainchild of architect, Andrew Lock and artists, James Bowthorpe and Kim Coleman. The trio have collaborated to create Winter Sun, a bar like no other you will have seen.
Based in King’s Cross, Winter Sun is as much an art exhibition as it is a bar. You see, there are 12 changing sun instillations, each one representing different periods of light – from daybreak to dusk, vis the brightness of midday. Cool, eh? As though that wasn’t cool enough, above people’s heads is a huge sun-like sphere that acts as a shield against the night, which further adds to the daylight illusion.
As for the drinks and snacks, it’s a thoroughly British affair. There are craft ales and wintery cocktails to choose from, as well as gourmet pies, sausage rolls and scotch eggs to tuck into.
The Winter Sun won’t be around for long, it’s here until 2nd January, so get your visit in quick. Until then, enjoy a video below of how the pop-up was erected.
