Canopies UK help with the creation of Hilton’s new and exclusive tower of London bar
Canopies UK, the leading designer, manufacturer and installer of quality canopies, was recently contacted by The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel – Tower of London to assist with the creation of Savage Garden, an exclusive 8,870 sq ft rooftop bar, comprising a cocktail lounge, dining areas, private spaces and two outdoor terraces.
Essentially, the project involved making a statement. Canopies UK enabled the Hilton to do this by helping the hotel make the most of every single square inch of space that was available, both inside and out.
At 12 storeys high, the new bar was at the mercy of the weather. Canopies UK installed one of their Cantabria canopies, which features six retractable roofs that can be opened and closed independently of each other, at the touch of a button.
Jason Eastwood, managing director of Canopies UK, explained: “The canopy’s a real head-turning feature and enables the terrace to be transformed from an al fresco summer hotspot into a winter events space for private hire and seasonal pop-ups quickly and easily.”
In addition to the highly stylish and unique retractable waterproof roofs, the canopy also features integrated guttering, LED lighting, heating and a combination of fixed and vertical sliding glass screens that can be retracted in the finer weather and partially or fully closed in cooler, wetter and more changeable conditions.
The hotel’s general manager Bernadette Gilligan said: “Come rain or shine, guests can enjoy everything from drinks to private events in the space. The retractable canopy – designed and built as bespoke for Savage Garden – means that the terrace can be cosy and covered during winter and the perfect suntrap come summer.”
