Why you #needRedemption if you don’t drink

Why you #needRedemption if you don’t drink

If you don’t drink alcohol, going for a night out can sometimes be a daunting prospect. You might find yourself making up ridiculous excuses (Yes, I’m on antibiotics – again) just to avoid the judgement of others. But that’s why Redemption is a great choice for you. You’ll be used to being surrounded by people…

Why you #needRedemption even if you drink

Why you #needRedemption even if you drink

If you’re the sort of person who likes to drink frequently, or likes to drink every time you go out, I would encourage you to not reject the idea of Redemption. You might find it’s a nice alternative to take a break away from the constant temptation of booze. So whether that’s a Monday night…

My advice for young entrepreneurs

My advice for young entrepreneurs

I was at Virgin for a very long time and have done a lot of innovation work, so I often get asked what my advice is for young entrepreneurs. It’s really tempting to say, “Just go for it!” But you do have to do your homework first because it’s so easy to lose money so…

What was the most stressful moment of the pop-up?

What was the most stressful moment of the pop-up?

Our experience of setting up Redemption at Fairly Square was a journey to say the least! And I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t stressful at times. JD, our manager, started mid-December last year so we had just 2 weeks to organise everything – slightly pressurised! Setting up Redemption at Fairly Square happened over…

What we’ve learnt from starting a pop-up

What we’ve learnt from starting a pop-up

We’ve been searching for properties the whole time we’ve been doing residencies, that’s taken us nearly through to 2 years – can you believe it! During that time I think we’ve made an offer on something like 6 properties. Some of them looked like they were going to come through and then we lost them…

What is a pop-up?

What is a pop-up?

Here at Redemption, we tend to throw the phrase ‘pop-up’ around with reckless abandon, but a lot of people still aren’t sure what it actually means. A leasehold is something that you own for several years, you trade under that leasehold, you have rights to that space and you have a contract with your landlord.…

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 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.
