Sotheby's cafe awning

Sotheby's cafe have new Victorian awnings

5 Oct 2017

These new Victorian awnings at St Georges St in W1 London are on a surprising location.  A little known secret in the heart of the West End in London is the fact that behind one of the world’s great auction houses is a cafe where anyone can walk in and have tea and coffee. An old world of elegance where you can enjoy coffee or tea and scones and have a wonderful time sitting among expensive works of art. The service at Sotheby’s cafe is gracious and most people who walk past the door never realize there is a cafe inside.

As with all our traditional Victorian awnings the awning boxes at Sotheby’s are all from harvested hardwood timber and the blue awning fabric is intricately decorated with Sotheby’s specified graphics applied by hand using the unique RAGS system which has been developed in Morco by our own dedicated development team.  

Sotheby's was established on 11 March 1744 in London and is the world’s fourth oldest auction house in continuous operation, with 90 locations in 40 countries. In 1917, Sotheby's relocated from 13 Wellington Street to 34-35 New Bond Street, which remains as its London base to this day.
