Silly season

Silly season

We’ve begun telling people that Redemption will be open in our new residency at Fairly Square (Holborn, London) in January and the response has been pretty overwhelming. The phone is going, bookings are coming in. People want to know if we are open before January. It goes to show that the need to detox may…

Rawsome Revolution

Rawsome Revolution

A while ago we held an event at Redemption Portobello called Rawsome Revolution and it does feel as though there is a raw food revolution about to happen. For those of you unfamiliar, it is about eating vegetables, nuts and seeds in as raw a form as possible so you can get the most nutrients…

onwards and upwards

onwards and upwards

And so on to the next phase of Redemption’s development. We’re doing another residency in central London, at Fairly Square, London’s first fair trade café bar, in Holborn. We’re going to take over for January and then be in residence every Sunday and Monday through to March, at least. It’s an interesting marriage of brands…

Knot the end of the week

Knot the end of the week

Those of you familiar with me enough to know about my inanimate object rage will be surprised to learn that I have endless patience with undoing knots. When I was a kid, my mum used to give me her tangled up bits of wool to untangle. I find it somehow pleasing. The trick is not…

This week has been a total rollercoaster. As one door opens, another closes. Successful entrepreneurs talk about dark days and how everything is at its darkest just before the dawn. Now is the time to dig deep. This is where it’s important that your brand is hitched to consumer trends and needs – the key…

Do I look stupid?

Do I look stupid?

I think there must be something about my face / demeanor which makes people think that I am naïve and clueless. Here’s some of the most bleeding obvious things people have said to me this year: Why don’t you do some publicity and promotion for Redemption? (I’ve had at least £2 million worth of coverage)…

3 years since Virgin

3 years since Virgin

This week I passed my 3 year anniversary of leaving Virgin. 3 years of having no employer, no salary, no title, no expense account, no corporate travel. And subsequently having very few holidays, new clothes, new furniture, or nice beauty treatments! Has it been worth it? It might seem like I’m living the dream but…

Pub industry doff their cap :)

Big thanks to the Publican Morning Advertiser for their Big Interview with me this week. They also invited me to speak at their upcoming conference – who would have thought it? The UK pub industry is actually interested in what I have to say. The respect is mutual

About us

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 a couple of 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 a short break we’re now going to be in residence at Fairly Square, London’s first fair trade bar cafe, near Holborn, which we will be launching in January 2015. 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.
