Neon Cactus has earned its (green, white and red…) stripes since it opened in late 2009. The staff are known for their attentiveness, the tequila laden cocktails are not for the faint hearted, and the Mexican street food gets excellent reviews.
The classic cantina style bar – rough wooden box shelving for bottles and a triptych of prints of the Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa – is lit by Factorylux enamel lampshades.
A combination of Factorylux green enamel Coolicon shades and red enamel industrial shades light the bar. The colour and style of shades date from the early 20th century and fit in perfectly with the cantina style. The shades are combined with lighting chain, twisted fabric cable, bronze lamp holders from the Factorylux modular range to help create the functional cantina atmosphere. There are rumours that the bar staff leap up on the bar and clang the Coolicons to get customers’ attention, incidentally demonstrating the durability of the shades.
