Alfred’s Hot Spots
21st October 2016
Welcome to our all new Hot Spots blog, taking you through some of London’s coolest spots which we’ve discovered during a busy month of media networking, exploring and our own adventures (quite often involving a cocktail or two).
The latest offering from the Soho House Group is Café Monico, a stone’s throw away from Soho’s media houses on Shaftesbury Avenue. The European brasserie is perfect for breakfast and lunch meetings, with a super speedy but extensive (and delicious) menu. We recommend the classic croque monsieur for an indulgent brunch or, sticking with the French theme, the moules frites.
We recently made a trip to Backyard Cinema: Lost Jungle, an immersive screening experience in Elephant and Castle. This is one cinema experience to be remembered. Head straight to the extensive food market, before crawling (ungracefully!) through a tiny cave to do your best Tarzan impression as you brave a rope swing into the jungle itself. Not one to be missed, the visit reminded us that immersive worlds can still create an amazing consumer experience, imagine what could be done if VR was added?
Our latest team adventure led us to Happiness Forgets on Hoxton Square, a cool underground speakeasy that has an unusual cocktail list. Add this to the must visit list! This would also be a great venue for an influencer event or immersive brand experience.
