Soho is a bar and bistro based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Whether it’s a couple of cocktails in good company,or a bite to eat from their delicious menu, Soho is sure to offer you a great time out. With their online presence only covered on social media, they decided to expand and get their very own website with bOnline.
The website had to give the same luxurious, warm feeling you get as you walk into the bar, but also be welcoming and show off with stunning images of the interior. Engaging with an elegant style was the aim when designing their website.
After seeing their imagery, the designer had an immediate feel for the website. With a professional photographer hired for the photos, it already made a large contribution to the striking visual aspect of the site. Content was kept fairly minimal, and the images speak for themselves. The colour combination from the logo, was used in a subtle way, with the black background allowing the colours to pop, as well as the imagery.
The site was designed so that the user can easily navigate and find what they’re after. It’s also engaging, with the use of contact forms to get in touch for bookings or applications, the live twitter feed on the home page, and their sister site, Madisons, also designed by bOnline.
After only a few tweaks to the design, the client was very happy with both their websites. They each have their own feel to them, but still have a similar layout, to give users a familiar feel when visiting either. With a stunning website, Soho can now easily direct any one to go online and check anything from their menu to making a booking for an event.
