This November the ever-popular and highly-acclaimed Thor’s tipi bar will make a welcome return to York city centre. Last year over 50,000 people visited this uniquely themed attraction that plays on York’s Viking heritage and is now a firm fixture of the Christmas offering in the city. From 10.00am on Thursday 15th November in Parliament Square, Thor’s will once again open its doors and provide a cosy winter retreat for Christmas shoppers, visitors and families alike.
Two linked canvas tipis will form the bar, festooned with lighting and decked out with wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and an open fire pit, around which customers can soak up the Viking hygge. The tipi has been given a makeover – bespoke timber walls adorned with Thor’s very own Viking shields bring an additional Norse touch as well as an increased capacity, allowing more people to enjoy a drink.
A brand new drinks menu offers exciting new lagers, pale ales and Guinness whilst festive favourites such as mulled wine and hot cider will ensure there is something to warm everyone’s cockles. A new range of flavoured hot chocolates allows kids, big and small, to tailor-make their own drink, or adults to enjoy a sweet hit with a kick by adding a delicious shot such as Salted Karamel Vodka or Rhum Orange! Teas and coffees as well as soft drinks are also available to revive busy shoppers.
Shambles Kitchen will be returning with a new cabin accessible to customers already inside the tipi, allowing them to order easily from the exciting Christmas savoury menu, while a private outdoor heated terrace hidden round the back enables customers to soak up the festive atmosphere whilst watching the hustle and bustle in the Christmas market.
THOR’S tipi bar will be open from 10am to 11pm daily from 14 November 2018 through to 1st January 2019 (closed Christmas Day). For details visit www.thorstipi.com or call 01653 610029.
