All sorts of shiny new things

Hello and Happy New Year!

We hope you don’t need to seek too much redemption after the holiday season – but we’re always here if you do…

In fact, we’re super excited to announce that we have opened our second site in Shoreditch! So even more of you beautiful people can seek redemption (We’re at 320 Old Street, London, EC1V 9DR if you want to come and find us.)

With a greater number of people to redeem, we’ve raised our game with an exciting and nutritious January detox menu from Andrea.

New dishes include: a kelp noodle & lemongrass laksa with shitake mushrooms, spring onions, red chilli, ginger and coconut water; roasted pumpkin coated in cashew & gamasio with avocado, lemon, garlic and detox powerhouse horseradish guacamole; and an amazing new raw dish – beetroot linguine with kale & almond pesto with wild rocket and lemon flaxseed oil.

On top of that we’re working with Cancer Research UK’s Dryathlon campaign to give people plenty of ideas for alcohol-free cocktails if they are taking January off booze, and we are also delivering to central London via the Michelin-star restaurant delivery service, supper.

We’re delighted to have featured in the news over the past week or so, too – both the Metro and The Observer have shone a light on Redemption, and we’ve had lots of love on social media too! It looks like 2016 is getting off to a healthy and happy start! Phew! We look forward to seeing you soon :)

Redemption Bar is arguably London’s healthiest restaurant, serving up vegan, sugar-free, and wheat-free food with an alcohol-free bar. Our two restaurants in Notting Hill and Shoreditch are being described by many as the best vegan restaurants in London. Our motto is ‘spoil yourself without spoiling yourself’, and our ethos is rooted firmly in caring for the planet, its animals, and ourselves. Come and visit London’s top alcohol-free, vegan bar – or order in via the luxury delivery service SUPPER if you live in central London.

What’s the secret to success?

How can you become successful? In this week’s vlog, Catherine reveals the secret to success; namely that there isn’t one. She highlights the importance of recognising failure as a natural side effect of success, and why we should embrace and learn from it. Take a watch for yourself:

We do love a good old behind the scenes video, so if you’re anything like us, you’ll love this week’s FridayGram: Catherine gives you an exclusive tour of Redemption Bar Notting Hill, disco ball and all – take a look below!

Hello and Happy Friday! It’s been a great week here at Redemption as the leftover sparkle from Notting Hill Carnival dies down. We’ve been reflecting on how far we’ve come in the few weeks we’ve been open, and how we overcame the various obstacles thrown in our path. We’re very proud of where we are now but it certainly hasn’t been easy! Watch the video below where Catherine releases the Redemption blooper reel:

Thanks for watching!

With Easter finally upon us, it’s a time for reflection. It feels particularly apt after almost two years of trading.

Lots of successes to celebrate, lots of bruises to heal and lots of lessons learned.

The response to Redemption from the public and the media has been amazing. We’ve had love from great organizations like Cancer Research, Southbank Centre and Virgin.

The single biggest challenge has been finding a site to trade in – but we’ve managed to pull off 3 residencies whilst bidding for about 6 sites, all of them lost, one way or another.

We have something looking very promising and it would have been amazing to have been able to announce it now, but we just don’t want to jinx it!

We’ll be using this Easter to have a little break, to mark the end of the beginning for Redemption (and to celebrate of course!)

So here’s to a rebirth and new beginnings.
