Mo*Vida, London’s popular VIP club, set in the heart of Soho, has teamed up with The Brewery, the premier event and dining company, in East London, to host an array of private events over the course of the London Summer Olympics 2012. The two giants in London’s nightlife and hospitality industries have come up with a ‘pop-up’ concept, to run over the course of two weeks, to be called The Retreat.
With a number of big name acts expected to play accompanied by Mo*Vida’s high profile guestlist The Retreat will be the venue to be and be seen. They will combine Mo*Vida’s knowledge and expertise of the clubbing and VIP experience and The Brewery’s knowledge of events and hospitality. The Retreat will be open from 27th July – 12th August 2012 making it the perfect entertainment venue for the London Summer Olympics 2012.
The venue will be split into 6 distinctly different areas each celebrating the best in British. Mo*Vida will occupy The Club where some of the best DJ’s will be playing well into the early hours offering party goers the VIP experience you would expect from the Soho based club.
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.
