Enjoy Drinks with a view at The Principal York with SÓL ÁST

York’s iconic hotel, The Principal York is set to be THE place to enjoy drinks with a spectacular view following the announcement that THOR’S tipi bar will bring SÓL ÁST – a pop-up tipi bar with a summery vibe – to the hotel from 24th May 2019.

Playing on its Viking heritage, the SÓL ÁST bar celebrates summer (def. SÓL = sun, ÁST = affection or love in Old Norse) and will be situated in the beautiful Principal York gardens, creating a picture-perfect summery vista until 1st September 2019.

“Being home to York’s popular THOR’S SÓL ÁST tipi bar this summer is extremely exciting for us here at The Principal York where we always provide a warm welcome both inside and out! The striking canvas tipi will be adorned with greenery and lanterns, and sit proudly in our extensive manicured gardens, giving everyone popping in the chance to enjoy a stunning historical setting, overlooking the ancient city walls with a drink in hand.

“From cocktails with friends, swift craft beers after work or a refreshing mocktail, we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to our lawns to enjoy their drink with a view!” said Tracy Harrison, General Manager at The Principal York.

SÓL ÁST will be open daily and offer an extensive range of drinks. The summer menu is up-to-date and on trend offering low calorie and alcohol-free options, as well as offering favourites such as Pimm’s and Mojito’s.   Popular lagers can be found both on tap and in bottle and new summer cocktails or summer breezers include Frozen Pina Colada’s and Mango Daiquiri’s, Espresso Martini’s and Frosé, frozen rose wine.  The finest local coffee, tea and summery soft drinks also provide the perfect refreshment.

Co-Founder of THOR’S Bars Ltd, Maria Farrugia said “We are thrilled to be partnering with The Principal York on this exciting project.  Situated in the heart of the city beside York railway station, SÓL ÁST will open up the stunning gardens of the hotel and invite people to get away from the hustle and bustle of the station. Our pop-up bar once again offers residents and visitors alike the opportunity to come and enjoy themselves.  With alfresco drinking, day beds, summer tunes and a giant board game for kids young and old, SÓL ÁST tipi bar at The Principal York is the sunny and summery place to be in York.”

Located in the heart of one of the UK’s oldest cities, the landmark hotel maintains its own original entrance just steps away from York Station platform, making it a convenient place for either a quick drink on the lawn or a night of summer revelling before hopping safely on the train home.

THOR’S SÓL ÁST will be open from 11:00am – 11:00pm daily between 24 May and 1 September 2019. For details visit www.thorstipi.com or call 01653 610020.
