Dutch canopies at The Gibson

23 Mar 2017

We have recently installed these three Dutch canopies at The Gibson bar in Old St , EC1. The Dutch canopy  is an economical, strong, practical canopy with good branding potential. Available with retractable or fixed options, it can withstand quite heavy weather when installed correctly. The canopy can be fitted to most shop-fronts, even sometimes directly on to signs and shutter-boxes where these have been securely fixed. These particular canopies are in a black fabric with striking white coach lines and the Jaegermeister logo is to a precise specification.

The Gibson cocktail was created in the first decade of the 1900s and, like all true classics, it has withstood the test of time. The Gibson bar pays homage to this cocktail’s journey. The Gibson experiments with different ingedients to provide customers with variations of this Edwardian classic, in a dark, intimate and extravagant corner plot between Old Street and Clerkenwell.

Old Street was recorded as Ealdestrate c.1200 and le Oldestrete in 1373. As you might imagine by the name it would indicate the road is of ancient origin. The road lies on the route of an old Roman, or possibly pre-Roman, track connecting Silchester and Colchester, skirting round the walls of Londinium, which today is  known as the City of London. Within the past few years Old Street has become a favoured location for notable graffiti artists such as Banksy and Jef Aérosol. Banksy has featured several pieces on "Shoreditch Bridge". Old Street and its immediate surrounding areas has attracted IT and tech companies, both established and start-ups, and has been dubbed Silicon Roundabout.
