Designer Lee Broom was commissioned by Selfridges London to create a pop-up bar within its Men’s Shoe Gallery to mark the first anniversary of the department.

The mobile bar will be operated by chef and restaurateur Mark Hix, who describes this new bar as “the smallest cocktail bar in the largest men’s shoe-wear department in the world.”

The pop-up bar, modeled in the 1960s American look of the store, will serve different types of mixed drinks and light snacks, and is designed to be fully portable to make it easy to move around the store.

The bar includes a sideboard, a hostess trolley and a tall-boy drawer set. The spirits cabinet rises out of the sideboard when in use, while the work surface also rises up to reveal more of the bar. The pop-up bar also includes a long wooden table, stools, and an oversized round mirror that adds to the “domestic” atmosphere of the place. All the pieces are bespoke designs handcrafted in the UK with polished walnut and brushed brass details.
