The Sleeper Bar

The industry’s favourite pop-up bar, the Sleeper Bar, is created this year by Michaelis Boyd, the London and New York based architecture studio recognised for its sophisticated, design-led approach and emphasis on sustainable and environmentally conscious materials and building techniques.

We are open until 8:30pm on Tuesday 19 November with our late-night networking event commencing from 6:00pm

For this year’s bar, Michaelis Boyd has drawn its inspiration from “The Man Who Planted Trees”, a short story by Jean Giono which celebrates the power of the natural environment.

Working primarily in timber, the bar will be a study in sustainability; investigating the afterlife of the material through scale, layering, adaptability and recycling leading to creating a space that will cater to all walks of life, adjusting to the needs of each individual, making the bar a rich experience for each visitor.

“We are both really looking forward to designing the Sleeper Bar. On our previous visits to Sleep & Eat we have been very impressed by the strength of the designs and the themes and we are excited to be adding our own spin this year. The theme of FlexAbility means we will be designing a dynamic and social hub for all this year’s visitors.”
