Stunning turquoise Greenwich awnings have been installed by us at the Hovarda Bar and Restaurant in Soho. The awnings have been complimented by neat modest sized, bespoke, RIB canopies at the upper level which make this building distinctive and set it apart from the nearby premises. The Greenwich awning is a modern version of a traditional system with the advantage that the awning can be operated either manually, via a gearbox, or electrically, using wireless remote controls. The unique nature of the design means that the awning is immensely strong yet the careful use of materials has avoided the more cumbersome look of other pivoting awnings.
Hovarda is a bar and restaurant inspired by the flavours of the Aegean sea. The bar serves cocktails and wines alongside live music and DJs, with enough space to cater for 70 persons in comfort. It has an open kitchen which is integrated within the main dining area. Hovarda maintains a laid-back vibe in the afternoon, before the in-house DJ takes control in the evening to liven things up. The bar hosts DJs from around the world and is open 7 days a week until 1am each night, with live music on Sundays; a really popular lively spot in London.
Rupert Court and Rupert Street are named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine, noted 17th century general and son of Elizabeth Stuart, daughter of King James I; he was First Lord of the Admiralty when this street was built in 1676. Today Rupert Street borders Chinatown which used to be in the Limehouse region of East London, however, this was pretty much destroyed in the Blitz and has been steadily rebuilt in Soho since the 1970s.”
