We are very pleased to be soon starting work on site for a brand-new bar fit out in the centre of Maidenhead in Berkshire. ‘A Hoppy Place’ is a new bar coming to the town, operated by the family-run business who have an existing outlet in nearby Windsor.

As we’re vastly experienced in the design and build of all manner of commercial interiors (including several bar facilities), we were only too happy to work with the owners on their exciting new venture. We initially provided all the advice they needed to create their ideal design, before commencing the building phase. Read on to learn more!

How Oaktree Interiors are undertaking this bar fit out project

The company

Offering a wide selection of local craft beers, sourced from the local area of the home counties and the royal county, A Hoppy Place have already built a loyal following in Windsor through their existing bar and online ordering facility. The new Maidenhead bar will be in a ground floor unit at Trinity Place on Park Street, directly opposite the Town's Heritage Centre.

The company have built a great online offering of products from the ever-expanding choice of breweries in the area, which will now be complemented with a retail offering within the same space, as well as offering customers the opportunity to relax in the bar area whilst sampling their huge array of products.

The project brief

As a new completely new bar fit out, the new site will be handed to us in a ‘shell and core’ condition, with bare brick walls, exposed ceilings and concrete screed floor. Our team have worked closely with the client to develop a welcoming and comfortable space for clients, that is both practical and functional with a design built in collaboration with the client.

We have also had to consider a multitude of needs of the space, not only to ensure that the space is an attractive destination to the local population, but also a lot of consideration has been applied to the functionality and legal obligations of such a facility.

Careful consideration was given to:

  • Accessibility to the premises from the street, including all building control obligations.
  • Installation of all toilet facilities.
  • Maximised seating capacity.
  • Front and back of house storage and associated product cooling requirements.
  • Cold and ambient storage spaces.
  • Lighting to different areas of the space.
  • Retail display locations.

The bar fit out will include the following trades and facilities:

  • New flooring, with different finishes appropriate to the function of each area. Including the requirement to raise the overall floor height.
  • Various seating areas, including booths with overhead storage.
  • New bar, counter and cellar.
  • Complete electrical and design-led lighting installation.
  • Air conditioning in addition to cellar cooling services.
  • Design, decoration and furniture.

Once all relevant licences are granted, we expect to start on site in March 2022 and expect the bar fit out to be fully operational in late spring. Our team are very much looking forward to visiting as soon as possible later in the year.
