Preston & Chester, UK
Kuckoo first opened in Preston in June 2010, mixing the concepts of high quality drinks, mainstream rock and indie music with supreme customer service. With a cult following across the UK, they currently have tin ceilings in 2 of their 3 bars with continued plans for world domination that American Tin Ceiling looks forward to being a part of.
REASONS FOR PURCHASE: Aesthetics, Cost, Turn-around Time
Which patterns and colors did you choose?
"Kuckoo bars have Patterns 21 and 22 in Double Plated Gold and Matte Gold (shown here in Antique Silver Gloss and Stainless Steel Gloss).
Pattern 22 is an exclusive pattern that was salvaged from an abandoned building in Cheyenne, Wyoming in the 1800s that was destroyed by fire."
Which installation type did you purchase? Was it as easy as explained?
"Nailup -- the fitters had no problems although cutting was awkward in places."
Are you happy with your purchase? Would you use tin again?
"Yes, very happy, particularly with our bar in Chester which is a heritagelisted building."
Any future projects in the works with tin?
"Two more bars this year."
