Harry Hawker Beer and Wine Bar

Named after local avi­a­tion leg­end, Mr Har­ry Hawk­er, this neigh­bour­hood cock­tail bar mix­es sophis­ti­ca­tion with a qual­i­ty par­ty atmos­phere. Bor­row­ing motifs from the sky, soft edged cus­tom light fit­tings, paint­ed in tones of grey, wash the walls and seat­ing areas with warmth. 

A sculp­tur­al abstract rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Sop­with Air­craft which made Har­ry famous hangs above the open and engag­ing cock­tail bar, encour­ag­ing peo­ple to gath­er around for a chat.

A large pix­e­lat­ed por­trait of Har­ry, by the amaz­ing artist Belin­da Wilt­shire, looks over the mix of inti­mate booths, share tables and open bar area that have been designed to accom­mo­date groups and simul­ta­ne­ous­ly make indi­vid­u­als feel con­nect­ed to the party.

Com­plet­ed on a tight bud­get, this bar utilis­es objects col­lect­ed from sec­ond hand and recy­cle yards to give it a sense of per­ma­nence and char­ac­ter, imme­di­ate­ly brand­ing it as a local institution.
