The Cocktail Club

To ensure the highest quality start up for The Cocktail Club, River and Bear was carefully selected to turn simple ideas into big things and produce the best launch for their brand new venue in Cardiff City Centre. The Cocktail Club have ventured over from London and want to take over Wales with their expansion. Of course we have helped this happen, kicking it off with a bang, and a brilliant launch night, which was just the start. Our marketing and PR expertise have excelled this and have created a very successful launch for the venue.

Underdog Cardiff

Following on from a very successful collaboration with Kong’s, the curators of The Underdog, they returned for our help with the launch of their brand-new lounge bar in Cardiff. In just a short space of time we fired out a press release, delivered special invitations and gathered an exclusive list of influencers and local press to come together for a fantastic night of beers, cocktails and pizza! This was all in the very pleasant setting of neon lights, pool tables and kitsch basement décor, of course accompanied by great music.

Busaba

After running 9 successful Thai restaurants in London, Busaba decided to open its first Welsh establishment in Cardiff’s Brewery Quarter in late 2021. Our PR team has been working incredibly hard to spread the message of Busaba’s arrival to Cardiff, from handing out vouchers at two freshers’ fairs to street activation on Caroline Street giving out delicious prawn crackers and drinks vouchers.  At the same time, we have been helping to organise an incredible launch, with a VIP list of local influencers, press and local celebrities who all received hand-delivered invitations from our team, including a green Thai curry and distributed a press release to local and national media outlets.

Kongs Bar

Following the success of their Bristol site, Kongs looked to convert an old nightclub on St Mary’s Street into their first Welsh venue. 
 
Our web development team built their website whilst our marketing, PR and events team assisted their launch from start to finish. Their amazing ‘build your own’ arcade game template invitation was the perfect touch for inviting their guests. Known for their free-to-play table tennis tables, a Kongs branded ping pong ball and brand sponsored goodie bag was the fun and perfect take home for the launch party guests.
