THOR'S SOL AST pop-up bar


The team behind THOR’S tipi bar will once again open their doors on Friday 10th July when they return with their summer operation, SOL AST.

Hosted in collaboration with The Principal York Hotel, SOL AST will be situated in the sumptuous gardens of the hotel and looks set to be the biggest beer garden in York this summer.

A larger, ‘socially distant’ layout will be in operation, with a brand-new table service system. You’ll be able to pre-order and pre-pay using a mobile phone, reducing the contact and offering service from the comfort of your chair. Walk-ins will be welcomed, but you’ll also be able to book in groups, making customers feel more at ease when visiting the bar and also giving them the guarantee they will have a space when they arrive.

Providing the food this summer, will be the renowned local company, The Hog & Apple Food Co. Owner, Ged Dillon, promises to be serving up some tasty treats and a full menu will be available to view later this week.

SOL AST will open from Friday 10th July at 4:00pm and from Saturday 11th July and throughout the summer, 11:30am to 11:00pm daily.  Advanced bookings can be made by calling 07483 339119. More information will be shared through Facebook and Instagram or on the website so keep checking for offers, promotions and events happening throughout the season.
