Back by popular demand, the bespoke après-ski bar Piste has returned to Archer Street this season.
Archer Street’s new downstairs winter pop-up, Piste, features a dedicated cocktail menu and the après-ski lodge interior is inspired by ski bars around the world.
Transporting guests from the busy streets of Soho to a tongue-in-cheek and beautifully designed winter escape, Archer Street’s downstairs bar has transformed into a warm and elegant ski lodge, inspired by Scandinavian mountain cabins and Swiss chalets.
Skilfully decorated with reindeer fur, vintage skis, and even Piste’s own roaring fire, guests can sit back and relax in one the comfortable lounges, as they enjoy the views over the Italian Alps, through one of Archer Street’s custom-made ‘windows’.
A dedicated cocktail menu offers delicious creations, such as the King Of The Alps made with Tanqueray gin, blended with King ginger liqueur, fresh lime, apple juice and a whole pear and mixed with cinnamon and maple syrup, or the festive Glow Plough, Grey Goose shaken with homemade mulled port syrup, fresh lime, cranberry juice, egg white and finished with a floating glow stick.
Archer Street in Soho is a spacious and elegant bar set over two floors with a 440-person capacity. The on trend ‘shabby chic’ décor has been expertly put together by the owner’s, with the upstairs bar featuring large French windows, distressed wood panelling, plush velvet stools and armchairs, and silver-topped tables dressed with candles, and fresh flowers, creating a sultry atmosphere as evening falls. The downstairs bar changes every six months and have previously played host to successful pop-ups such as the polo-inspired bar Chukka, and this summer’s Brazilian themed, Barzinho, always offering guests a fun and intimate atmosphere, and stunning design.
