Why choose Wildfire London?

It’s the big question. Choosing us means that you place the same value on your guests as we do. Choosing us, means we will use analytics, insight and market intelligence to create a compelling story for your venue – before designing a single thing.

By appointing Wildfire, our clients have realised the potential of their venue – from stadia and leisure venues to luxury retail and high street restaurants (even an illegal cocktail bar!) – for over a decade we have created unique, authentic, experiences – each one created solely with the guest in mind.

Whether it’s a new high street venture, existing venue or simply a tired stadium – Wildfire ensures the perfect blend of strategy, brand, experience and environment – singularly they can be effective. Together they are exemplary.

The Wildfire Way

Snappy-snaps. Getting our claws into some Osaka street food.

Why are we a bit different?

We blend customer experience with commercial viability. The spaces we create work in different ways depending on the occasion, but they all have one thing in common – they are built with the guest in mind. That way we ensure the guest keeps coming back and the numbers stand out!

TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD

How we aced it!

Wildfire are both excited and delighted to announce that our friends at Keith Prowse have been appointed as exclusive, AELTC official hospitality provider for The Championships, Wimbledon from 2019 for a period of 5 years! Working with Keith Prowse to serve up the winning bid in a highly competitive tender process – a range of unique guest journeys around zoned offers were developed, that integrated food & beverage development, guest experience naming conventions and brand – all of which were built on the overarching theme of ‘Tennis in an English Garden’. Game, Set and Match!

Why you shouldn't take our word for it

I have worked with Wildfire on numerous projects over the years, most recently, Twickenham Stadium. It is due to this relationship that led me to appoint them as our partner on the AELTC official hospitality provider for The Championships, Wimbledon tender. Working collaboratively, their skill set, knowledge and understanding of the guest experience and hospitality market truly gave us a competitive edge. If you are looking to work with a refreshingly friendly and creative bunch whom have an ability to deliver truly innovative work, look no further.

Andy Vinsen, Managing Director, Keith Prowse

Why — the big question?

Why? The only question we ask ourselves when developing a new concept for a client. Why? The benchmark we live and work by. Only when we can fully answer the why, do we believe we have a winning idea to progress through to delivery. Why would you work any other way?

Why wouldn't you

Home runs before our run home. Let’s go @hanshintigers_official

How did we convert an idea into reality?

Working with our partners, Keith Prowse and KSS architects, we are in the process of delivering five levels of unique hospitality totalling 23,000 sqm within in the new East Stand expansion at Twickenham Stadium. Building on the overarching concept of ‘The Home of Rugby’, each of the levels is named after parts or areas of a large, grand home.

Levels 1+2 will introduce The Gate Chop House, a new restaurant that honours the natural raw power of the pack players and the cattle within an atmospheric interior clad in dark timbers and blackened steel. Due for completion in August 2018, we are pretty sure The Gate Chop House won’t have to TRY hard to be a real winner (couldn’t resist that one)!

How are we relishing our burger challenge?

Long time friend of Wildfire, Bert Giancristofaro (phew, what a mouthful – a bit like the burgers! Sorry Bert) in Western Australia has asked us to work on evolving his recently acquired – Perth’s original and favourite – burger joints, Jus Burgers! It will be a long, on-going process with new brand, tone-of-voice and interiors to create and implement but we are sure we can serve up a flippin’ great result!

How did we help the zoo hide the animals?

Working with hospitality provider Levy Restaurants, we were tasked to create a new immersive restaurant at Bristol Zoo. On occasions it is better to use the clients own words so here is what they had to say; “Featuring sleek white-glazed brick and copper theming on the outside and immersive interactive features on the inside, the venue has augmented reality screens, wall murals and animal sounds which create the feeling of being amongst the animals. Interior designers took inspiration from nature and installed five themed zones, based on a range of animal habitats to enhance the visitor experience.” We didn’t monkey around with this one!

How did we come over all patriotic?

Working with our partners Instore, we helped to deliver a unique coffee shop concept at Boxpark Croydon. In 1941 Jack Bateman founded a company called Factory Canteens right here in Croydon with the simple intention of feeding workers in the factories to enhance their productivity whilst supporting the war effort. Fast forward to today, we have taken Jack’s original principles and ideas and brought them into the 21st century, still with a view to serving good, honest food to enhance people’s day! More outlets will be heading to a high street near you soon so keep calm and carry on!

Why haven’t you heard of us?

Wildfire are a fairly modest bunch who like to keep work under wraps. Most agencies like to gloat about the schemes they have delivered but when it comes to our partnerships, we respect client confidentiality. Many of our projects are long-term, large-scale ventures where we work closely with the client to develop best in field hospitality and experiences specifically designed to meet the demands of the modern guest. However, we can tell you we are working on a range of projects from small independent bars and restaurants to large sporting and public arenas throughout Europe and further afield. Not bad eh?

WE DON’T LIKE TO BRAG

Back to black. Always a pleasure to return to The Aman, Tokyo.

Why join the party?

It’s not all about work, work, work here at Wildfire. We design guest experiences after all so it is important that we get out and about to check on the latest bars, restaurants and entertainment venues wherever we happen to be. We like to stay on top of the latest trends as this is invaluable insight when delivering world-class environments and offerings that truly resonate with our clients and more importantly, their customers.

Work hard, play harder

How did we perfect our swing?

Topgolf is a golfing game from stateside that anyone can play (and win). Score points by hitting micro-chipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on an outfield. The closer you get your ball to the centre or ‘bullseye’ and the further the distance, the more points earned. Wildfire partnered with Topgolf to overhaul the overarching theme for the interior design of each of the venues restaurant and bars. We also had to inject new touchpoints to provide an Anglo/European feel. We think we holed this in one!

How did we get into illicit drinking?

London’s underground ‘speakeasy’ bars are increasingly becoming the city’s worst kept secrets so we thought we may as well talk about it. At the City’s prohibition-inspired bar The Bootlegger, there’s no tell-tale neon sign or oversized doorknocker – it’s hidden between a Nando’s and a dry cleaners. Don’t be perturbed by the lack of signage. Head down the unexpected stairwell and you’ll find a basement bar whose exposed brick walls are adorned with archive photographs, dimly lit by copper pendant lamps. If you want to try it out for yourself, head here; 51° 30’ 43” | 0° 5’ 0.2”

Why You shouldn't take our word for it

Working in partnership with Wildfire London helped us to realise our vision for The Bootlegger. Their strategic thinking, creativity and commercial acumen made our limited budget go a long way, making a real difference in delivering a truly exciting guest experience in a somewhat saturated market. Without their passion and drive the bar would not be where it is today – established on the London cocktail scene.

Sodexo Prestige are preferred lead caterer for the world renowned Ascot racecourse. As part of this exclusive partnership, they have acess to their own personal box within The Grandstand.
