These days it’s hard to get away from booze – you can’t even go to the cinema without being offered a glass of wine. With Redemption, we are creating a space away from temptation that still feels like a treat. We’re challenging the convention that we need alcohol to lubricate every social occasion. But more than that, we’re providing a menu designed by a nutritional therapist which allows you to ‘spoil yourself without spoiling yourself’. As well as our delicious mocktails, we serve super-healthy food, including desserts that are good for you – yes! We have lots of vegan, gluten-free and raw food dishes.
We got Redemption off the ground with three residencies – firstly a summer 2013 pop-up in Netil House, Hackney, and then a long term residency within Goldfinger Factory, a furniture upcycling workshop underneath Trellick Tower just north of Portobello. After that we had our most popular residency at Fairly Square, Holborn, which have just finished. Thank you to all our lovely customers for all your support and patience whilst we’ve been getting established.
Redemption is a company with a ‘heart of gold’ – we don’t harm or kill animals to create our food; we source things locally and where possible organically; we have a zero waste policy; we aim for a zero or positive environmental footprint; and we offer employment opportunities to people who really need them, including people in recovery from addiction. That’s not to say we’re holier than thou or boring. Rather than preaching to people about their lifestyles we’re just providing an alternative – a night out but a night off.
