Mr Fogg’s Pop-Up at The Royal Albert Hall

By News

On Tues 6th June, Mr Fogg’s had a Pop-Up bar at the Royal Albert Hall, for the first ‘Royal Albert Hall Founding Patrons Event’. Mr Fogg’s partnered with Belvedere vodka to create two exquisite cocktails: ‘The Victoria’ & ‘The Albert’.

It was an evening of cocktails, canapes and a surprise performance by a top opera singer. Guests were invited by RAH, and Mr Fogg’s compass holders were also asked to join.

The fit couldn’t have been more seamless, with our Victorian style bar in a beautiful Victorian building. Mr Fogg’s looks forward to doing more Pop-Ups at The Royal Albert Hall.

Join us at our next Pop-Up: The Mr Fogg’s Orchard in association with Aspall at the Hurlingham Tennis Club, Tuesday 27th – Friday 30th June 2017.

A New Level of Storytelling

By News

Inception group are very excited to be featured in Virgin Experiences piece “Inside the business taking storytelling to a whole new level”

“As far as innovative uses of storytelling go in business, Inception Group takes some beating. The brainchild of co-founders Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling, the nightclub, bar & restaurant operators, prides itself on immersing customers in unique and theatrical storylines…

Inception Group venues are designed to bring people on immersive and unexpected experiences. A great example of which is one of their latest spaces in Covent Garden – inspired by mobster films, it’s accessible through an industrial meat locker, where guests ‘negotiate’ with a butcher to enter.

Having promoted the brand through pop-ups at events such as Queen’s Club tennis championships and Henley Regatta the pair oversaw sales of £14 million in 2016, chalked up a place on the Fast Track 100 and now boast a staff of over 300. We spoke to the guys to get a better understanding of what storytelling means to their business.”
