Grand Union Bars mixed up concept bar
Grand Union Bars are already well known and loved. So how do you position a new one that also offers some of the world's oldest industries; a specialist coffee house, male grooming parlour and a florist? Well, with a new name for a start, Welcome to Trade Union.
Set in the historical docks of London's Wapping, our inspiration naturally came from the Wapping industrial trade years. We aimed to evoke a sense of hardy nostalgia and gives a feel of the people, industry, trade and raucous reputation of the area in the 1850's coming together again under one (massive) roof. A special venue with a unique atmosphere.
We chose LL Brown for its sharp geometric forms and blunt edges, raised counters and exaggerated angles give a familiar retro styling for a historical yet modern feel. Available from lineto.com
