One evening, Alex Claridge (The Wilderness) was listening to an 80s playlist after a long shift. He took out a pen, and a slip of paper, and began writing an 80’s themed menu. Fast-forward two years, some investment and a few Bret Easton Ellis novels, and Nocturnal Animals was born.
A collaborative effort with architects, investors, chefs, designers and and a whole host of tradesmen from all walks of life, Nocturnal Animals became one of the most hotly talked about projects of 2018. So we knew we’d have to build something insanely beautiful – or we’d get trolled on Instagram.

What We Did
An alternative universe in which the 1980s never ended.
Each space with a different identity.
As well as being able to work with design elements that were only acceptable in the 1980s, we also managed to build-in a few very millennial concepts, including a bespoke gantry and bartenders table, as well as an LED corridor (that subsequently clogged your social media feed).
