Mixology Events worked with Wieden + Kennedy to provide our cocktail bar rental service in the offices of the Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, east London. A festival theme was chosen to celebrate their new space, which resulted in our staff sporting straw trilby hats to serve mixed drinks incorporating delicious summer ingredients.
We also tailored our drinks menu to include draught beer, tapping into the brewery location – these were presented in wooden crates to complement the surroundings.
We made use of a number of locations within the Truman Brewery and the night was effectively four or five events in one. First we welcomed the guests with a sangria reception and homemade paella on the roof terrace of the W+K offices. We then discretely rigged up our custom cocktail bar on the rooftop on the opposing side, ready to transition into the second stage of the evening.
After the reception the employees at W+K could relax and enjoy mixed drinks from the second cocktail bar, as well as ice-cold beers from our wooden panel trough in a third space within the brewery. After the area transition had occurred, we were able to take down the initial reception bar without delaying the next stage of the cocktail bar rental event.
A series of bands provided the entertainment for the main event whilst Mixology provided the refreshments. We set up a bar opposite the band stage meaning guests weren’t missing out on anything when ordering a drink.
The cocktail bar itself matched the festival aesthetic, with sleek wooden panels along the exterior to blend in with the abundance of wooden crates spread throughout the venue.
It was a great event, and we enjoyed the logistical challenge of hosting a bar reception before a follow up bar on the roof, all whilst working closely with the bands that performed. To organise your own cocktail bar rental, please click on “cocktail bar hire” in the menu at the top of the page.
It was a great event, and we enjoyed the logistical challenge of hosting the reception before the follow up rooftop bar, all before the main event where we worked directly alongside the performing bands. Although we were approached by W+K to provide a cocktail bar rental service we also offered consultation on the organisation of the event as a whole – including site visits – and provided all staff for the event including all cocktail bartenders, floor staff, and full rig-up and rig-down services. Our staff carried the kegs for the rooftop bar up four flights of stairs – but it was well worth it!
