Cafe de Paris, London, UK

BULLDOG Gin were the headline drink sponsor at the 10th annual COOL Venue Awards, held at the stunning Cafe de Paris in London's Piccadilly. The event saw 36 venues take home awards for everything from COOLest Museum (our friends at the Science Museum) and COOLest Sporting Venue (our friends from Silverstone) to COOLest for Galas (our good friends at The Roof Gardens) and COOLest Historic Venue (more friends of ours from Somerset House)!

The night started off with our team serving 800 BULLDOG Gin cocktails from a 1.5m mobile bar we installed into the reception hall. The COOLest Cocktail consisted of BULLDOG Gin, creme de cassis and Fever Tree Aromatic Tonic garnished with fresh mint and blackberries.

As the reception drinks ended and the awards ceremony began our team quickly broke down the bar, making way for the events step and repeat board. Our bar team then descended into the BULLDOG VIP Room at the back of the club. Complete with branded bar panels, plenty of branded vinyls on the walls and even a back room with beds ...

The party went late into the night with nominees and winners alike enjoying the many entertainment acts, BULLDOG G&T's and cocktails on offer, photo booths and our favourite, a vintage games room complete with Nintendo N64 and a Sega Mega Drive!
