Over the past few weeks, there have been many Leisure & Hospitality award ceremonies, showcasing and awarding outstanding concepts across the country and in some cases, the world.
The Imbiba Leisure EIS Fund has been investing and growing Leisure & Hospitality concepts for the past 5 years. Amongst these concepts, are award winners.
The former bank turned bar and events space, Six Storeys on Soho has had a very a good few weeks. This Camm & Hooper venture, housed in a tall (thus the name) 18th Century townhouse overlooking Soho Square, won a bronze award for ‘Best New or Refurbished Venue’ at the London Venue Awards.
Following their bronze win, the decadently decorated drinking and dining venue picked up the gold award for ‘Best Private Dining Venue’ at the HireSpace awards. To top it off, the Camm and Hooper group were awarded ‘Best Venue Portfolio Marketing’ at the Hirespace awards too.
Also riding high after a busy award-filled few weeks is No. 29 Power Station West. The riverside bar and restaurant located in Battersea Power Station scooped two awards at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards. Outshining the competition, they were awarded ‘Best Pub’ and ‘Best Overall UK Bar’.
Taking the top spot in both, this Darwin and Wallace-owned neighbourhood bar has shown its offering is just as impressive as its location.
