    Garden - Durham

Originally it started life as a garden office, but like many it got repurposed as a Garden Bar at the beginning of Lockdown. I started an Instagram account for the bar a year later and have discovered an amazing community of genuine people. There's a bar at one end and a sofa / sofa bed and table at the other end. Pablo Discobar also has a beautiful log burner fire in the centre, which is cream with a chrome flue. The bar is fully insulated in walls, floor and roof with electrics and a separate fuse box. The bar also has a vintage payphone and we have a reputation for games and fun, with a smoke gun for smoking cocktails, spin the wheel, electric shock, ring swing, play your cards right and swear snap. There are two fidges, Bose Sound System, large disco ball and disco lights. Everything inside is upcycled and made by myself, including bespoke lighting, log drying rack, wall artwork, bar, bar shelving, table and a coatrack made from reclaimed arcade joysticks. Outside it’s finished in grey painted cedar with lighting and a lovely highstreet bar grade professional sign ouside made from a metal box frame, perspex and lasercut brushed metal letters. We also have branded glassware and merch.

It's loosely South American themed, but really it was born from a lovely holiday to Iceland with my wife which has a bar of the same name, which I found hilarious.
