Watson's Bar

How to create a bar in 24 days

We’re flattered that we once again got the opportunity to develop a turnkey solution for Hotel Rival and their new Watson’s Bar. A bar named after the owner’s faithful companion, a Jack Russell with great appetite and curiosity. They wanted to create a new kind of meeting place where the visitor would instantly be greeted by a pulsating atmosphere. A place with generous opening hours and where you can enjoy oysters and classic drinks with a twist.

The twist for us was that the project needed to be completed in an extremely short timeframe and without impacting the hotel’s daily business. Together with Millimeter Arkitekter and Konceptism we developed a concept for the bar and managed to bring a future Stockholm classic to life in only 24 days.

– Year 2019
– 250 m2
– 24 days of construction
– 29 professions
– 10 meter long bar counter
– 11 bar seats
– 50 lounge seats

“Getting a five on TripAdvisor from our guests during the construction period shows that everyone that was involved in the project really took care of the guest’s well-being.”
