Manuka: Escape To A Pink Bar Paradise

If you are in the mood to escape into a golden hour sanctuary then Manuka is the perfect place for you. Using distinct pink features to create the perfect utopia so you won’t feel like you’re in Sussex anymore.


Grab a cocktail and escape to a dreamy sunset oasis whilst getting comfy on the cosy booths surrounded by calming mood lighting. If you are needing a trip to paradise then you are in the right place.

Named after the honey used by singers to treat their throat, the bar has another connection to the music industry with the founder being the drummer Ben Thompson from Two Door Cinema Club. Located in the heart of West Sussex. Offering creative cocktails until early hours of the morning.


Designed by the award winning 3 stories design. Celebrating Miami Beach vibes and the “golden Hour”, transporting you into a hedonistic, peach hued paradise.

Celebrating the golden hour… as the sun sets, be transported away from the streets of Worthing and into a hedonistic, peach hued, oasis. For Manuka we created an intimate but bold interior scheme in harmony with a warm, playful new brand identity

– 3 Stories

The identity is built on a graphic linear gradient, reflective of the sun going down… and the party starting. This design language is brought to life with stylised icons, and applied across various applications such as logo, menu, printed collateral & signage.

A sense of serenity will envelope you as you get transported into the Manuka paradise. The pink interior highlights the desire for young femininity within the bar as well as wanting to create a playful environment. Creating a perfectly insta-worthy night out.

Bespoke Matching Bar tops and Table tops

The matching pink bar and tables emphasise the playfulness of the bar. The designer 3 Stories opted to use the exclusive pink marble Rock n Rose from Versital.

Versital bar tops and table tops are fully bespoke and made to designers specification, allowing complete freedom of design and expression. They were able to carry the theme of ‘pink paradise’ with Rock N Rose throughout the venue.

The warm and playful interior created with the pink hues will make you want to stay until the sun rises.

Easy to Maintain

Not only does Manuka benefit from the beautiful aesthetics of Versital marble, it of course comes with all the benefits you’d expect from our marbles. Versital is extremely hygienic offering the anti-bacterial protection of SteriTouch, as well as being waterproof and easy to clean.

Working in Partnership with Designers

As well as manufacturing to design specification we are also on hand to offer advice to designers to help create the vision they have whilst being a practical real-world solution. We often have designers who approach us with a brief and initial design who may need advice making it work in practice.

Our aim is to take the stress away from the designer and end client and work alongside other trades to get a good end result.

As well as being a beautiful marble finish it offers the benefits of being extremely hygienic, easy to clean and non-porous so will not stain
