PROJECT: Thirst W1 – Fit-out of Soho bar
“…it has always been difficult to integrate the awkwardly L-shaped groundfloor bar with the larger, clubbier basement.
The overall feel of Thirst is clean, cheap and cheerful. Behind the expanse of glass frontage lies a pared down, linear, white space, with coloured lightboxes paying a cheeky homage to Soho’s heritage of neon and ‘model’ signs. Downstairs is darker, with an occasionally manic dancefloor, a cosy back alley with table seating and a bewilderingly large number of ladies’ loos (a hangover from the venue’s lesbian past).”
