New Viking tipi bar pops up for Christmas at intu Milton Keynes

Posted 3rd November 2017

Milton Keynes will have a new festive offering from 10th November this year in the shape of THOR’S tipi bar – a Christmas pop-up bar with a difference. 

Located in Oak Court at intu Milton Keynes shopping centre, THOR’S tipi bar will be a novel experience for Christmas shoppers and revellers alike.  A giant Scandinavian tipi will form the bar, festooned with lighting and decked out with wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and a fire pit.  

Serving local draft ales, mulled wine and hot cider, the fully licensed bar will have something to warm everyone’s cockles.  A hot chocolate station allows kids, big and small, to choose a topping for their homemade chocolate treat. 

Spearheading the drive to bring THOR’S to intu Milton Keynes was General Manager Shelley Peppard. “We are always looking to evolve and develop the centre offerings at Christmas to attract new customers.  THOR’S tipi will add something different and appealing into the mix for adults and children and we’re delighted to work with the operators who have an excellent track record across the country.” 

Maria Farrugia, Co-Founder of THOR’S added ” We have been working with the centre for a few months now to work up our plans and truly believe this will be a great experience for everyone.  Our first THOR’S opened in York for Christmas 2015 and was a huge hit, so last year we added Leeds and Sheffield to our portfolio, and are now very excited to be welcoming Milton Keynes.”

In addition to Milton Keynes, THOR’S tipi bars will be popping up in York, Leeds, Sheffield, Lincoln, Hull and London over the Christmas season. 

THOR’S tipi bar will be open from 10:00am daily from 10th November to 31st December (closed Christmas Day). For details visit or call 01653 610020.
