Tradicional presents The After Supper Club at MC Motors

Tequila brand Tradicional are taking over MC Motors in conjunction with The Art of Dining and Background Bars to host The After Supper Club, treatment featuring an adventurous 5 course Mexican inspired menu and of course plenty of tequila!

The After Supper Club is not about food as art, but food and drink as the route to great times with friends. The menu promises to tantalise and intrigue with 5 courses of unusual and adventurous Mexican inspired fare. Guests should expect share and tear Yucatan grilled fish tacos, be surprised when a chili is not all it seems, and see the classic Mexican drink Horchata turned on its head to make an unusual dessert. As with all the Art of Dining past experiences, the full menu is a closely guarded secret and will not be disclosed until the event itself, keeping guests guessing.

They have also partnered with Background Bars to bring you an exciting Tradicional Tasting Flight consisting of 4 different Tradicional serves and a sample of the After Supper Club menu all in the same beautiful surroundings of MC Motors.

The Art of Dining comprises of a chef (Ellen Parr) and an artist & set designer (Alice Hodge). Parr spent her formative years working at Moro and Rochelle’s Canteen before traveling around South East Asia researching cooking methods, techniques and flavors. Hodge who trained as an artist and teacher currently works with theatre companies designing sets and making props, and creating distinctive room and table designs for weddings and parties.

The restaurant is spread over 7 dates 4th, 5th 6th and 10th 11th 12th 13th of October and tickets are priced at £45 for the Supper Club and £15 for the tasting flight menu. To purchase and more info head over to the Tradicional website.

“Girl Interrupted” GQ March 2012

Heres some pics from the March 2012 edition of GQ featuring Keira Knightley and shot at MC Motors and Ruby House by Norman Jean Roy.

Introducing…. Ruby’s our new Dalston Basement Bar!

Set underneath the cinema sign at 76 Stoke Newington Road Ruby’s is an intimate subterranean drinking den serving expertly mixed cocktails and quality alternatives in a unique and atmospheric setting. Set up by Tom Gibson in the former kitchen of Ruby House 3, a Chinese takeaway, the room was stripped back and adorned with a Mayfair bar and some delicate interior alterations.

Drinks are made using top quality ingredients with all alcohol being premium and all juices and syrups freshly made on site. We place great emphasis on the small touches that make a difference so all our Blackberry Mojito’s are served in 1940’s milk bottles, all our beer mats are vintage and unique and service will always be performed with a smile. Ruby’s aims to fuse the atmosphere of an old fashioned bar with modern day standards of quality and service.

We have a small carefully crafted cocktail menu which include 7 Ruby’s classics and 7 seasonal ones plus a selection of alternatives including Redchurch Ale, Brooklyn lager, Breton cider, fine wines plus a whole array of others.

Vogue UK “Our fave east London hideaway.”

Grazia “Best London Cocktail Bar Winner 2013”

Design My Night “Best New Bar 2012”

Metro “The Savoy or The Ritz it’s certainly not but Ruby’s is a class act in it’s own lovely lo-fi way.”

Evening Standard/Barchick “The sign says ‘Nothing to See Here”. Not true, there is plenty.”

Time Out “Our new fave hidden Dalston spot, just don’t tell everyone about it!”

Vogue Espana “Few things are closer to the definition of cool.”

View London “Ruby’s is definitely a venue to prove the cynics wrong, possessing the genuine feel of a hidden gem, rather than a try-hard hipster concept bar.”

Holocaust Memorial Day 2012

To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day on the 27th January we were pleased to donate The House Next Door for the filming of the promotional video made by the charity Speak Up, Speak Out. Featuring the likes of poet Benjamin Zephaniah, singer Beverly Knight and choristers The London Gay Men’s Chorus the viral explores the theme of communication and power of speech.

“Holocaust Memorial Day provides an opportunity for everyone to learn lessons from the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides and apply them to the present day to create a safer, better future. On HMD we share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the UK today.” hmd.org.uk

Support their cause and sign their pledge to acknowledge the past by challenging the language of hatred around us.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Empire Magazine recently released a ultimate movie celebration special to coincide with the release of the final instalment of the Harry Potter series. Tastefully shot by Sarah Dunn at both MC Motors and The House Next Door the series includes all the major players of the iconic films including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Robbie Coltrane and Timothy Spall.



(This one wasn’t taken at any of our locations but we couldn’t do a Harry Potter series without including Rupert Gint!)

Popstar to Operastar TV Advert

Here’s the new commercial for popular entertainment series “Popstar to Operastar” recently recorded at MC Motors. Featuring Katherine Jenkins, Rollando Villlazon and an airborne Myleene Klass the ad was skilfully curated by the ITV creative team.

Fortunately nobody was injured during its recording!

GB Olympics Hopefuls

MC Motors recently played host to a photo shoot for The Sunday Times Style Magazine featuring a selection of Britain’s highly rated 2012 Olympics team. With the Olympics taking place just a (fairly large!) discus throw away in Stratford it seemed fitting that the talented Olympians should come down to be glammed up (or down rather!) for the day. Simon Emmett took the snaps to publicise the collaboration between Adidas and Stella McCartney to design the Team GB Collection which will be in stores from May 16th.


Beijing silver medallist Philips Idowu returned back to his Hackney routes for the shoot. The highly rated triple jumper stands out from the crowd with his brightly coloured hair and facial piercings and will be one of the hot favourites in London next year.


Track and Field specialist Jessica Ennis will be another one to carry the weight of Britain’s Olympic expectations next year. After being unfortunately ruled out of the Beijing games at the last minute Ennis went on to win gold at the 2009 World championships in Berlin after leading throughout and finishing an unprecedented 200 points ahead of her nearest competitor.


Tom Daley has been earmarked as a 2012 hopeful ever since the London games were announced in 2005 and given his public profile it is hard to believe that he has just celebrated his 17th birthday. After winning 2 golds at the 2010 Commonwealth Games Daley will definitely be providing the biggest cheer at the London Aquatics Centre.


110 metre hurdler William Sharman is a man of many talents being able to play the cornet, is a classically trained pianist, has an economics degree and was once the time keeper on Gladiators. “I always thought I needed to set myself up first or I’ll end up a nobody,” he says, “and you don’t want to be a nobody in Corby.”


22 year old Lizzie Armitstead is only one of two female cyclists who mix the track and long distance disciplines. A gold medallist at the 2009 Track World Championships Lizzie will be part of a strong looking British cycling squad.


Triathlete Hollie Avil was the European and world junior triathlon champion in 2007 and the youngest ever athlete to podium at successive debut World Cup races.
