York is about to welcome back the ever-popular THOR’S bar this June, at not one, but two fabulous locations right in the heart of the city.


The city will be welcoming back SOL AST (by THOR’S), to the grounds of the Principal Hotel on Wednesday 1st June (in time for the Jubilee weekend celebrations) and their second pop-up bar will open later in the month on Parliament Street, Friday 24th June.


“We’re super excited to be back again in our home city, it’s been a long Norse Winter and we are ready to dust off the Viking ships and celebrate Summer in our favourite locations – with our ‘street food’ friends.

This year we’re building a NEW and exciting bar in Parliament St, exclusive to York! With atrium, florals & of course our famous (and toasty) fire pits. At the Principal Hotel, we’re returning with our sunny tent and all the outdoor space you’ll need for a hot Summer.”


Commented Amanda Monaghan, Director of THOR’S


Indeed, both venues will offer visitors different experiences.


SOL AST is described as the place for ‘glamorous get togethers, inspired by Ibiza vibes’. They’ll have cabanas, a ‘naked tipi’, drinks menu designed for Summer, bespoke THOR’S playlist and delicious feasts by Frango Eduardo.

At THOR’S tipi in Parliament St, guests are invited to soak up the bustle of the city centre whilst relaxing under the stylish atrium. The famous fire pits will return for cosy evenings, alongside DJ sets and live music throughout the week. Guests will also be able to feed their souls, by feasting on the finest street food offering thanks to local street food vendors, including Yuzu Street Food, York Roast Co. and Millers. Fish & Chips.


“We’re creating a diverse drinks menu for each bar and of course there’ll be our famous frozen cocktails which always go down a STORM – Including a Strawberry and Watermelon Mojito Slushie. We’ll also have plenty of local drinks on offer, such as Cool Citra by Ainsty Ales and Gins by Slingsby.
