Bar talk

Light Bureau has created a trendy lighting scheme for the Adventure Bar & Lounge in Covent Garden. Working closely with interior designer, Sophie Hibberd, Light Bureau has produced a dramatic solution relying on some simple theatrical techniques whilst producing comfortable lighting to booths for customers to relax and drink. Light Bureau’s director Paul Nulty explains: ‘The key to the success of the bar lighting has been to keep it simple. The budget for lighting was very tight, the total expenditure on lighting, including controls is just £4,000 so we had to be very creative with some of the details and resourceful with regards specification of luminaires. The entire project, from concept to completing commissioning, was undertaken in just eight weeks so we also had to keep an eye on availability.’ The key lighting features within the space are the trademark clusters of bulbs over the bar areas and entrance foyer that provide visual emphasis and sparkle. The foyer is particularly important for attracting passing trade as the bar entrance is narrow so the feature has to be eye-catching. Light Bureau chose to work with EncapSulite, Mode Lighting and CEF.
