What's on

Sol Ast returns to The Principal York gardens from 10 July to 6 September

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

Hosted in collaboration with The Principal 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.

Co-Founder of THOR’S tipi bar, Maria Farrugia, explains how things may work in this new era for hospitality. “We have been keeping abreast with how our industry plans to return and what our future customers will be looking for and the key things to come out of this are ensuring tables are kept apart with social distancing measures, offering free hand sanitiser and an enhanced cleaning protocol that can be easily viewed by anyone visiting us. We’re an outdoor venue, which means we’re already low risk and that will give reassurances to all our customers. All of these measures will be part of our operation from the day we open and we’re monitoring closely any new guidelines set out by Public Health England. Introducing our booking system will allow groups of any size wanting to meet up the comfort of knowing they have an area reserved for them. We cannot wait to help people get together and celebrate with their friends and loved ones”.

General Manager, Tracy Harrison, is delighted to welcome SOL AST back to its gardens.
