Here are some pics of El Loco, the pop-up bar I designed for Merivale's new space at the Excelsior. We did the whole fit-out in seven days!! We ripped out the ceiling and exposed the beams, painted cactuses on the walls and plastered pictures of Frida Kahlo, Mexican skeletons and sharks eating tacos. We crammed it full of mexican oil-cloth in outrageous floral & checkered prints, colourful metal stools, David Bromley lampshades, haybales, cacti and corn growing out of huge pots. The whole street is filled with the smell of shrimp, chicken, beef & tofu tacos, cornchips and guacamole.
So much fun- go and check it out!!
