Soulshakers in 2016

We’re growing!

10927848_432319070268434_1238827263887904663_o

Each year we take on more events and get involved with more exciting projects than the last. In 2015 we had a really busy year, working with loads of festivals over the summer and sparking up a partnership with London Warehouse Events.

To hit the ground running in 2016, we’re looking to build a core team of bartenders & bar support. We’ve already got a great network of engaging and hard working staff on board but need more people like that to help us out with our event plan for 2016.

Red-Rooster-Ed-Haynes_-74

Not only will we be back at Tobacco Dock but our festival plans for 2016 are shaping up to be bigger than we could have expected. If you’ve got a positive mental attitude along with the energy to work in a fast pace and dynamic environment then we’d like to hear from you. Send your CV along with a bit about yourself to workwithsoulshakers@gmail.com

Cheers,

Soulshakers Team.

It would seem the throwback soft drink brand is having a revival of late and is now available for on trade. If you’re thinking of putting the iconic bottle behind your bar, why not take a look at some cocktails we came up with using the product.

Acid Future

Well that was fun!

ACIDFUTURE-19

When we found out that we’d be supplying the bars for Seth Troxler’s Acid Future at Tobacco Dock we were very happy. Even more so to hear Smokey Tails would be serving up food on the roof! Now that the site has been cleaned up and staff are back to health, it’s time we shared some images of the night!

This won’t be the last event we do with the folks at LEW. If you’d like to work at our event, be sure to get in touch at info@soulshakers.co.uk
