Solaris sets the Atmosphere at award-winning Aberdeen bar

Panaz fabrics have been used extensively in the realisation of the stylish and award-winning Grape & Grain wine bar. The design, atmosphere and customer experience of the bar have been received enthusiastically, receiving multiple accolades in its first year of operation.

The luxurious Aberdeen location, which was last year awarded both Best Wine Selection at the Scottish Entertainment and Hospitality Awards and Best New Operator by the British Institute of Innkeeping, has quickly established itself as one of Scotland’s most stylish destinations for wines, gins, whisky and craft beer.

A celebration of Scottish drink and hospitality in a sophisticated environment, interior contractors Frank Adams Contracts selected Panaz as fabric suppliers, to provide high-performance textiles which would not compromise the aesthetic or textural aims of the interior design. With looming copper lighting, a marble topped bar and a mirrored ceiling, atmosphere was a key influence on the overall presentation of the bar. To this end, Solaris was selected for the chairs and panel seating, with its rich, irresistible touch of velvet comfort and abstract feathered pattern contributing to the luxury and visual intrigue of the surroundings.

As well as helping to create an exceptional environment for patrons to enjoy Grape & Grain’s world-class selection of drink, all fabrics supplied by Panaz are highly durable and flame-retardant to international standards, creating an ease of mind for the bar’s staff to focus on creating the very best experience for their guests.
