Design and communications consultancy Fishburn Hedges took advantage of its imminent move to a new base in Kingsway, central London, by hosting an Oriental-themed party at its offices off Trafalgar Square. Featuring a Raffles Long Bar and Singapore Sling cocktails served by juggling TGI Friday waiters, last week’s event also included a fortune teller and tattooist, based in the strangely named Opium Den. According to Fishburn Hedges creative director Carl Ison, many revellers were ‘blissfully unaware’ they were actually in the group’s offices, instead believing it was an exclusive club. ‘Fortunately, we didn’t have to fully clear up the mess afterwards because we are moving in a week,’ says Ison.
