Thor’s tipi bar pitches up ahead of opening

Thor’s tipi bar is rising up ahead of the festive haunt’s return to Lincoln next week.

It’s preparing to open to revellers at The Cornhill from 6pm on Friday, November 9. It will stay in the city until December 31, opening between 12pm and 10pm Sunday to Thursday, and 12pm to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

As previously reported, Thor’s tipi bar has signed a three-year deal to become an annual favourite in the city.

Two linked canvas tipis will form the bar, which will be decorated with twinkling lights, wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and an open fire pit.

A brand new drinks menu offers exciting new lagers, pale ales and Guinness, along with festive favourites such as mulled wine and hot cider.

There will also be a new range of flavoured hot chocolates, with alcohol versions available for adults. Teas, coffees and other soft drinks will be sold at the bar as well.

It will be open from 10am to 10pm Sundays to Thursdays and from 10am until 11pm Fridays and Saturdays, but it will be closed on Christmas day.

New to this year’s edition is The Cheese Cave which will be serving delights from its vintage trailer.

Owner of the business Emma said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Thor’s tipi bar this winter and can’t wait to bring The Cheese Cave along to serve up some delicious grilled cheese street food to the hungry hordes!

“With locally sourced produce and award-winning Sourdough bread from Welbeck bakery, we think our food is perfect for everyone to enjoy around the roaring fires in the tipi and we’re thrilled the Thor’s team think so too!”
