Contemporary Pubs

Pubs, like most things, have had to change with the times and RCA Interiors folio reflects this change.

Traditional buildings will always provide an interesting interior but nowadays it’s more likely to be a converted bank, shop or even church that opens its doors as a pub or bar, rather than the old high street pub.

A converted bank building in Nottingham provided the setting for the first ‘Lloyds’ bar – hence the name – which is now being rolled out by J.D. Wetherspoons; large old furniture store in Stoke – originally the site of the Lion Brewery – was converted to the ‘Famous Lion’ for the Yard Glass Pub Co; and a cinema in Stalybridge found new life as the ‘Amber Lounge’.

Other clients include Living Ventures, Inventive Leisure, Brannigans for Herald Inns and Leisure, Reform Club and Barça for Hale Leisure, and the Pan-Am bar in the Albert Dock in Liverpool for Harlequin Leisure.
