From Summer to Winter - a space transformation

Back by popular demand!


Following on from the success of our partnership Summer pop up bar The Back Yard Project, working with The Royal Exeter Hotel, we set about transforming the space into an ‘Apres Ski’ bar. 

Working with our sister company Innovative Hire we set about making custom wooden framed heated Igloo Domes, built on scaffold frames to get around the unlevel ground of the previous car park space. Surrounded with frosted Christmas trees, 200metres of festoon lights, and of course a few retro ski’s!

The Space

Custom spaces


A new indoor area was created which included a custom bar, booth seating and Covid Secure walling. 

A larger stretch tent (than the Summer one) was installed with 26 tonnes of concrete ballast and wrapped around a 20ft shipping container kitchen. A custom seating area was built in the middle of the stretch tent designed with social distancing and Covid secure screens in mind. Around the perimeter we installed levels of higher booth seating, DJ decks and even 2x Ski Gondolas as booth seats.

The Street Kings

Winter delights for all to enjoy


The Street Kings knocked up a wicked Winter Apres Ski menu including Mac n Cheese bites, Stuffing balls, Pigs in Blankets, melted camemberts and BackYard Burgers. Their custom made shipping container served burgers and bites to guests throughout the day and late into the night!
