In the summer of 2015 The Halo Group rejoined forces with multi-award winning pop-up organisers Background Bars to create a fresh production concept which saw an evolution of their critically acclaimed
pop-up food, drink and music venue Night Tales, become Summer Tales!
Our brief was to create something completelty original for Background Bars. The London pop-up market is highly competitive so our client wanted the design to really stand out from the crowd. Our previous designs for Background Bars' Night Tales project had also set the bar very high so to continue on this trajectory was also essential.
To create the look we designed and built an imposing jungle archway to give instant impact and wow factor. For the more daring, a multi level adventure trail set high in the canopy above, allowed guests to enjoy an idyllic birds-eye view of the site like never before. As members of the public entered they were fully immersed into an incredibly authentic setting complete with real vines, coconut shells, twisted woods and other natural materials, each giving its own layer of character to the build. The Halo Group provided all the structures onsite including the two-tier sky village, 3 bars and the individually styled street trader stands. The Flamingo bar was designed by Darren Simpson.
