Let's Meet at - The Wapping Project

Reviewed by Andy Lulham, consultant, Paul Ridley Associates.

You can, metaphorically and literally, put the client on a pedestal at The Wapping Project.

The building was once the hydraulic pumping station that generated Wapping's electricity - its turbines, driven by water from the surrounding docks. Now, it is home to an arts centre and a restaurant, which lights up the area with a smart, slick, appealing menu for marauding carnivores, vegetarians and vegans - and News International bon viveurs.

And then there's the plinth - a raised platform with eight tables where Plinth People can observe everyone else, while everyone else observes them. High-flyers love the plinth, surrounded as it is by the Victorian machinery that once hummed and whirred as it lit up Wapping's streets and homes.

Starters include cured venison, juniper, poached quince and frisee. For your main, try roast breast of pheasant, green beans, Brussels, chestnut puree and cotechino - or pan-fried sea bream, cauliflower, raisins, pine nuts and black olive tapenade.

The wines, like The Wapping Project director and founder Jules Wright, are all Australian. I recommend Tin Cows.

Downstairs, there might be a fashion show, an art exhibition or a movie playing. If you want to stage a unique PR event, this really is an electric venue.
