Paradise Green is an epic venue in London City: with 3 bar/restaurants and truly immersive art. ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’ have distinct entrances and personalities; paying homage to the golden beach mornings and sultry nights of Surfers Paradise in Australia. 'Sunrise' is sun-drenched Deco-fabulous gold. 'Sunset' channels 80s electric sundown vibes. They’re connected by a 3,000 sq foot mezzanine with buzzy kitchen, private bar and a PDR encapsulated in a Bank Heist installation by Lucy Sparrow, formerly shown at the Saatchi Art Gallery.

Daisy Collection owners Prue Freeman and Tom Onions are art collectors who fill their venues with new commissions; this time turning “Sunset” bar into a giant, light-art-piece.

It was a complex collaboration, starting life as an original bar design by the interior designers, then given to Artist Justin Hibbs to develop into a large-scale artwork. Justin tested his designs across multiple panes, using 3D models. The main contractor then developed structural drawings before fabricating off-site in modular parts. Light-sheet specialists recommended a stretch fabric lightbox to display the final art. A unique bar which beckons the night away.
