If you haven’t been to Archer Street you absolutely need to make tracks for the Soho bar, especially if you like your cocktails with a side of performance.
Archer Street is a sophisticated (note the beautiful decor) bar that offers unique experiences across its two spacious floors; think nightly live singing performances by a professionally trained staff-cast, think resident DJ and a to-die-for cocktail menu.
Experiential is big on Push’s agenda as a comms agency which is why the team are hugely excited to be representing Archer Street to drive campaigns, events and collaborations.
Siobhan Magill opened Archer Street in 2011 after spotting a gap in the market; “The idea came from being tired of normal bars lacking personality,” she explains over coffee in the lounge bar.
“I used to frequent a bar that played great ’70s and ’80s music and thought how fun it would be if the bartenders sang the chorus so I stowed away the idea. Later, having found a site that would fit the concept I mentioned it to a friend who was a leisure agent and very quickly secured the property for me.”
Siobhan went on to launch Archer Street’s Got Talent following the overwhelming reception to her musical cast. Essentially it’s an annual competition that provides the opportunity to source new talent and use the venue to showcase undiscovered artists – not only that, but the winner is crowned ‘The Voice of Soho’ and bags a £3000 prize.
Then there’s the seasonal overhaul on the basement level – the Antigua and Barbuda Beach Shack over summer, and the Piste winter bar – which transports guests to a whole new destination themed to a T.
Roll on the rum-infused Caribbean vibe when Antigua lands at Archer Street later this month; we’ll keep you posted.
