    Mahiki Outdoor

    Gorilla Events launched Mahiki Outdoor at our flagship event at Henley Royal Regatta. Mahiki Henley successfully created an on brand representation of the famous tiki nightclub brand in an outdoor environment.
    This huge challenge and required meticulous planning, sourcing and importing of materials, props and furniture. Our in house team designed and created the worlds biggest tiki bar with a 3000 capacity venue complete with a super VIP enclosure.
    Gorilla worked alongside Mahiki’s team to curate a drinks menu that was transferable to a
    festival setting and required us to implement a volume cocktail operation capable of delivering perfect poured signature cocktails.

    BBC Proms in the Park

    In 2017 Gorilla added the BBC & Festival Republic to our client list with the BBC Proms in the Park & Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park contract.

    Our belief that large scale volume events can still be delivered with style and high production value alongside a premium quality serve set us apart from the industry competition.

    Taking over all the public catering and bars for the 50,000 sell out show we created a sleeker bar set up with craft and premium bar offerings,smart and stylish environments  tailored to the event and guest areas.


    Frontier Lager Container Bar

    Westside Drinks a division of Fuller’s Brewery approached Gorilla to design a container bar for their flagship brand, Frontier Craft Lager and manage the logistics and operation across a number of high profile and exciting new UK festivals.
    This portable bar solution needed to create maximum impact and stand out from the crowd. Utilising the shell of a 20ft side opening shipping container, our designers were tasked with creating a bar capable of serving thousands of customers at a very fast rate, whilst maintaining an on-brand high end industrial aesthetic, unique to Frontier.


    Wembley Park

    In 2016 Gorilla Events launched a food and drink revolution at Wembley Stadium. Taking on the challenge of stadium catering for the first time Gorilla worked with Sourced Market to eradicate the ubiquitous low quality highly priced trailer bar and food outlets that can so often been seen and accepted at large stadium events.

    With a superb line up of street food traders and some incredible craft producers we designed a new landscape for the stadium event day catering, and introduced premium offers across the site including our own container bars, and mass serve pop up bars and food outlets.

    Taste of London: VIP & Hospitality

    In 2016 Gorilla Events were brought in by Taste Festivals organisers, IMG, to dress the VIP & Corporate Hospitality areas at Taste of London. Formed of two large structures, IMG were keen to move away from the stuffy corporate style hospitality offers that have become the norm at other events. We were asked to introduce a fresh, fun and vibrant aesthetic, with premium indoor and outdoor furniture options.

    Drawing on the trends in tropical back in 2016, we pulled together a palm-inspired oasis for both the VIP & Hospitality tents.

    In 2017 we returned to the event to work again on the same areas and Gorilla continue to work with IMG on a number of projects throughout the year.



    Gorilla teamed up with Richard Turner (Hawksmoor) and his team behind Meatopia in 2014. The event is a celebration of all things meat related with over 50 of Londons best meateries sending in their top chefs and signature meat dish to contend for the top seller spot.

    Since our first outing Gorilla have been on hand to deliver all the bars across the site and work with various agencies to service impressiveactivations for Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels, Sailor Jerry, Buffalo Trace, McGuigans Wine, Casillero del Diablo and Beefsteak Wine. Not to mention our friends at Fullers Brewery with their Westside Drinks craft range including Frontier craft lager and Sierra Nevada.


    Sushi Samba and Duck & Waffle: Taste of London

    Gorilla Events were approached by Samba Brands Management to design and produce a venue to house Sushi Samba and Duck & Waffle at Taste of London 2015.
    The brief was to take their iconic restaurants out of the Heron Tower and on to the road, recreating many of the design features. On site we had two days for installation, and with many of the elements pre-fabricated in the studio we were able to transform the simple marquee into a “home from home” for Duck & Waffle and Sushi Samba. In 2016 we returned to Taste of London and utilising some of the existing set and a brand
    new BBQ area, we produced the restaurant stand for these two iconic venues.


    Polo in the Park

    Gorilla have worked with Polo in the Park since 2011. Returning for our 7th year in 2017, Gorilla design, produce and operate all bars across the site including the 7000 capacity Mahiki Coconut bar with pitch side raised VIP deck and our bespoke built Lanson Champagne Bar & Garden.
    In 2015 we launched the Grazing Paddock Food Court, bringing a range of London’s best restaurants and street food traders to this thirsty and hungry crowd. Taking up the challenge in 2016 we saw sublime food from Mark HIX, Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Restaurant, Smokestak and Bubbledogs to name but a few.


    Goodwood Revival

    In 2016 Gorilla Events added the world famous Goodwood Revival to its portfolio.
    We designed and built 10 vintage 1940’s shop units and curated a roster of street food traders to deliver and outstanding addition to this incredible well dressed event in their Over the Road area.
    As well as managing the 8 food outlets Gorilla also operated our own in house Victorian Pub and a Goodwood Organic Bacon Roll & Coffee shop.
