Astragal has uncovered a surprising source of the very hottest architectural news - but you'll need to be on a flight to Sweden to read it. According to Scandinavian Airlines' in-flight magazine, the new ground-floor bar at the RIBA headquarters in Portland Place has already become London's trendiest nightspot. What it fails to tell jetsetters is that the drinking hole, dubbed the Ribar, hasn't actually opened yet. The venue, which will be designed by Azman Architects, won't be unveiled officially until 31 August.
