Rita Ora unveils Coca-Cola’s contour centenary pop-up

By Joss Davidge

This week saw Coca-Cola celebrate the 100th anniversary of its iconic glass bottle with a vintage brand experience with the help of Rita Ora.

The vintage pop-up bar in Soho, London was inspired by the year 1915 – when the contour bottle was first created - with Ora even dressed to commemorate the decade.

Adding exclusivity to the event, the brand rolled out a red carpet at the launch. And the bar, which held tenancy for 3 days, was decked out with dark wood furniture, American-style red bar stools, vintage Coca-Cola posters and a grand piano. A wall was filled with glass contour Coca-Cola bottles and lit up with a ‘100’ sign.rita_ora_coca_cola__3

The temporary venue also played host to entertainment from contemporary acts over its three-day tenancy.

The Soho pop-up is part of a wider, global experiential campaign; The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, USA, is currently hosting The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100, an exhibit displaying more than 100 original bottle-inspired artworks.

This was a great use of celebrity endorsement from Coca-Cola – Rita Ora is a relevant choice for the brand’s target audience and messaging, and her involvement resulted in huge amounts of press coverage and chatter that may not have been achieved otherwise.
