The Retreat puts on spectacular evening for start of London Olympics

The Retreat, an exclusive pop-up members club based at The Brewery got off to a flyer on Opening Ceremony night as more than 700 guests enjoyed standup comedy from Lenny Henry, sumptuous food and drink, plus guest DJ Mat Horne on the decks.

Guests from a diverse range of London-based companies mingled with international visitors to enjoy an alfresco drinks reception in The Park, before taking their seats in the Retreat’s very own Cinema for a sidesplitting performance by comedian Lenny Henry.

The biggest cheer of the night however was reserved for Danny Boyle’s Isles of Wonder. Guests gathered around big screens throughout The Brewery to marvel at the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Other performances on the night, which have had guests acclaiming The Retreat as the number one pop-up hospitality venue in London for the Olympic period, included resident DJ Nathalie Morel and Jersey Budd. DJ Nathalie Morel said: “What an epic opening night at The Brewery. Such an honour to play at such a beautiful venue.”

Six themed areas at this exclusive hospitality house all offer something completely unique. Guests can dance the night away until 2am in The Club, receive beauty treatments in the Backstage Area and hang out in The Great British Diner or in The Country Club.

Olympic events are being shown each day on big screens in each of the six themed areas, with the venue opening for breakfast at 6.30am. The Retreat also offers unrestricted WiFi throughout and an onsite five-star hotel.

It’s cold outside this we know, but what we also know is that summer is just round the corner and we have it on good authority it is going to be a scorcher.

From June through August our courtyard will be transformed into a fantastic secret garden and we are taking bookings now.

Brewery summer 2021

It’s spring… time to think about summer!

Grab your grass skirt and your tropical shirt because it’s time to start getting ready for your summer party.

At The Brewery, we are currently taking bookings for our summer parties ‘Aloha!’, an outdoor Polynesian paradise-themed night out.

We run summer parties each year with different themes, to allow companies to come, bring guests and let their hair down.

What you’ll find at the Brewery Summer Party events

Our party nights run from June to August and begin at 6pm. As you enter you’ll find two huge marquees transformed to whisk you off to a tiki paradise, featuring a range of bright summery plants, and furnished with a vibrant collection of comfortable and stylish furniture. We know that the great British summer isn’t always as perfect as we could hope for, so we’ll be putting a clear roof over the top to let the sun in but keep the showers out.

On arrival, you’ll get a complimentary summer cocktail or a refreshing glass of Pimms. After that, you can enjoy unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks until the main portion of the party ends at 9pm (you can increase this, see the details below). Our amazing chefs will be cooking up a great Polynesian BBQ throughout the night.

After the sun goes down, at 9pm we move indoors to begin the after-party, and as the temperature drops our DJ will help to keep the party going.

Who’s the summer party is ideal for?

We offer all-inclusive packages for 80-800 guests so it’s ideal if you want to host your company or stakeholders for a summer spectacular.  We have a talented group of event planners who will help you to organise your event and make the process as simple as possible for you.
