The Escapologist

The Brief

Imagine the underground headquarters of a mysterious Victorian society. Who were the characters behind the secrets?

In Collaboration with

Finch Interiors - Interior design

The clients came to us with a Covent Garden legend, a tale of a Victorian gangster who escaped on the way to the Old Bailey and disappeared into the tunnels under Covent Garden, never to be seen again.

We imagined what might have happened next and worked with Finch Interiors to create a Victorian basement clubhouse for the gangsters and puppet-masters of the time with mind-bending tricks and visions of controlling the future.

As well as creating a brand kit and we created a series of portraits of the men and women who brought this society together which bring the space to life.

"London's Coolest bars are usually found on a rooftop or underground. The Escapologist, a Covent Garden cocktail joint is one of the latter. But it's hardly a diminutive basement bar, with a 'grand hall' behind a secret door and a 'vault' even further underground."
