Lincoln's exciting new 'Viking experience' has set up camp in the city - ready to welcome its first drinkers. THOR'S tipi bar, a Scandinavian-style attraction which gives a nod to Lincolnshire's Viking heritage, opens in The Cornhill on Tuesday, November 14 at 5pm. From then on, it will open daily from 10.30am through until December 31 (closing only on Christmas Day).
THOR's twin-linked tipis, with their inviting lighting, wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and fire pit, promise to be a real magnet for individuals, families and parties of friends over the festive period.
The fully-licensed bar will serve local draft ales, mulled wine and hot cider. It will also house a hot chocolate station, allowing children (big and small) to enjoy a homemade chocolate treat, with the topping of their choice.
THOR'S Director Maria Farrugia said: 'Our first THOR'S opened in York for Christmas 2015 and was a huge hit, so last year we added Leeds and Sheffield to our stable, and we now very excited to be in Lincoln.'
Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Matt Corrigan said: "We are delighted to be introducing a new attraction to the city for the important festive season."
The arrival of THOR'S tipi bar signals that the city is now truly geared-up for the festive period. In addition to opening to the public on Tuesday night, THOR'S will also be officially launched by the city's Civic Party at 8pm on Friday (November 17). That night there will also be three unmissable Christmas Lights Switch-On ceremonies - at 6.15pm at St Marks Retail Park, the main event in the High Street at 6.45pm and at The Waterside Shopping Centre at 7.15pm, added Mr Corrigan.
