The RetreatThe former Whitbread Brewery has a long history of entertaining Londoners (262 years to be precise). Now they reopen their historic doors for an exclusive 17 day festival, offering members access to six luxury escapes and a chance to enjoy the excitement of the Olympic season in true British style.  This pop up entertainment venue aims to provide city dwellers and visitors with a haven of tranquillity, in which they can party, relax and enjoy what looks set to be London's most hectic summer to date. The Retreat will feature six areas, all specially designed to fulfil whatever whim or desire may take your fancy - Get swept away from the urban grind in the peaceful park area. Feast on hearty British grub in the old school style diner. Indulge in a little sofa time in the vintage cinema (complete with popcorn, classic British movies and a state of the art supersized screen). Take stock of it all in the comfort of the Country Club, where traditional outdoor pursuits are enhanced by modern technologies. And as the cocktail hour quickly approaches, head to the nightclub for afterhours partying and live DJ sets. Finally, restore a little serenity in the Backstage Theatre, an all encompassing pampering station with on site artists and beauty professionals. The fortnight long celebrations come with a bill of live music, performances and all the latest drama from the Olympic Games, which will be projected onto large screens throughout the venue. With easy access to the East London Olympic site, it's an extremely desirable place to indulge in a little play time, and the perfect place to do business in comfort. But expect to dig deep if you want a taste of this particular high life, tickets cost a cool 2,500 pounds, although they are transferable between multiple members, making this ideal for organisations looking for a luxury London hideout to use over the busy period.
