01 ProjectsHow we helped© 2022
Multi-sensory experience of sight, aroma, sound, touch and taste
Event to explore each of the 5 basic core tastes “Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Salty and Umami” to showcase creative, luscious, playful and experimental cocktails. The Brand ambassadors were welcomed in groups of 5 and were taken on a tour through five sections to experience five tastes, each represented by one cocktail.
This event was a sensorial experience sponsored by Mount Gay and Remy Cointreau for drink brand ambassadors from around the world for One Night Only.
Being a Hospitality Consultancy Agency, we understand that every venue requirement is different, so we work with a number of high-profile bar consultants to help us match the right minds to every project.

03 ProjectsThe Plan© 2022
We arranged the bar into 5 areas – one for each taste were we presented the cocktail and provided the story with the taster. Each area was provided with lighting and props for photos to be taken by the press (and Instagram opportunities) and 4 bartenders serving at the same time.
A Dj played ambient sounds to create a sense of desire and exploration.
We welcomed attendees on the frontage of Three Six Six – team members were there with clipboards to welcome, tick off and organise them into groups of 3-5, ready to be taken inside at intervals of 5-10 min. We had a palate cleanser cocktail upon arrival to ease the wait. The group then moved into the first area, then on to the next, and so forth.
Attendees left the venue via the main front entrance to emphasise the experience.
Each area was embodied by a character – each member represented a different human feeling: classy, elegant, sexy, fun, interesting, unique, clever and quirky.
