NOV / DEC 2018

With the much-anticipated launch of TIVOLI – the new-age cinema, drinking and dining concept – in the offing next year and Virgin Voyages releasing images of its weird and wonderful F&B aboard the Scarlet Lady cruise liner, there is an evolution upon us. The way classic hospitality spaces are being rethought and re-energised is fuelling a change of mindset in how we view the unorthodox. Nowhere is now off-limits. Unused, unusual spaces have become sought-after. A few years ago, would you have thought you’d be playing mini-golf indoors while sipping cocktails? Or having a private dinner on the London Eye? The quest to utilise each space available to its full potential has seen some of the UK’s most recognisable leisure and educational institutions do just that. In this issue we head to the Saatchi Gallery in west London to hear about the lengths it goes in creating immersive culinary experiences for its clients (page 18). From turning a gallery into a tap room for draught beer to importing 69 mattresses to reference Tracey Emin’s ‘My Bed’ as part of a seafood theme, nothing is too much trouble. Features writer Esther Anyakwo heads to the Imperial War Museum to hear how caterer Peyton & Byrne creates its festive party packages (page 26); meanwhile, we hear from Keith Prowse’s Nick Gratwick about Twickenham Stadium’s new East Stand facilities. Internationally, we head to Las Vegas and to the Mob Museum, to see how it has turned its basement into a Prohibition-themed late-night bar (page 32). Elsewhere, the US comes to the UK as we take a look at the national stadium’s hospitality-level Club Wembley during its annual NFL matches (page 14). Enjoy,
