Lina Stores’ new pasta bar channels art deco in London’s Soho

Marking the legendary deli’s 75th anniversary

The Lina Stores deli has been a cornerstone of London’s Soho for 75 years and, to celebrate this milestone, it has expanded to a second outpost on Greek Street.

Architecture studio Red Deer has created the interiors of Lina Stores’ new pasta restaurant, using the DNA of its Brewer Street delicatessen as the starting point.

Lina’s familiar pistachio green tiles and black-and-white colour palette envelopes the two-storey space. These peppermint candy hues are echoed in the London restaurant’s outside awning.

A curving aluminium and Formica bar dominates the 12-seater ground floor space, which extends down to a basement restaurant. Rough brick walls have been whitewashed, while the vaulted ceiling exaggerates the feeling of space inside the 53-cover restaurant.

There are plenty of art deco flourishes to be found too, including fluted glass, globe lighting wall pendants and green leather bar stools and booths, which are used throughout the space.
