Amex Premium

We have worked with American Express in London for over ten years to help satisfy a variety of objectives ranging from merchant acquisition and perception of coverage to sponsorship platforms and access.

The latter requires our delivery of exclusive dining experiences for Amex cardmembers – both in the UK and, increasingly, those visiting from abroad. The relationship continues to develop as we work closely with Amex to increase the supply of dining experiences whilst maintaining the highest standards of execution.

 

Platinum Cardmembers

A Tale of Two Cities

For Amex Platinum cardmembers, we created a super-premium gastro-tourism experience which allows guests to experience two European cities in one weekend and enjoy the very best gastronomy in those cities, staying in 5* hotels.

The first itineraries were three-day experiences in London and Paris where guests purchased all-inclusive tickets.
This included: stays at 5* Hyatt Hotels in London and Paris, Business Premier on Eurostar in a private carriage, Michelin-Starred Gourmet Odyssey in London, dinner in London with a celebrated chef, private tour of The Louvre, dinner prepared by Jerome Bocuse, exclusive tour of the Caves du Louvre wine cellars and lunch at Ducasse sur Seine – the legendary chef’s riverboat dining experience.

Dining and art series

We also host a number of events specifically for Platinum Cardmembers throughout the year. This year, as part of our Dining and art series, we arranged a specially curated tasting menu at the Royal Academy of Arts, hosted by José Pizarro. Guests enjoyed a 10 course tapas menu including drinks, tickets to Francis Bacon’s exhibition and an exclusive talk from the curator.

We also put on exclusive events during our Chef’s Table series, London Restaurant Festival Summer and Autumn Edition and London in Luxury, specifically for Platinum Cardmembers. This summer, we look forward to hosting Cardmembers at Wilderness Festival, guests can enjoy a curated experience with access to world-class music, luxury glamping and lakeside tranquility. As well as two all-inclusive weekends exploring the hidden gastronomic gems of Somerset and Kent.

Centurion Members

For Centurion Members, we curate exclusive events during existing event programmes and series such as London Restaurant Festival Summer and Autumn Edition and Chef’s Table which they have exclusive access to. For example in London Restaurant Festival, we created a Tasting Menu series for Centurion Members showcasing premium ingredients such as white truffle, and a bespoke range of chef experiences called ‘In The Kitchen’.

We also create events throughout the year for Centurion Members that explore dining in combination with art, travel and culture. We have hosted exclusive small-scale events featuring the best Michelin-starred chefs across the country, including Sat Bains and Glynn Purnell. Already this year we have curated a weekend-long experience where guests test drive Ferraris and Lamborghinis and explore the thrills of Silverstone, together with fine dining and Oxfordshire’s finest five-star hotel, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. This event was so popular we created a second experience that will take place later this year, to meet demand.

This summer, we will be hosting mini-break trips to vineyards in France and a celebrity chef-hosted tour in the gastronomic capital of Spain, San Sebastian, for wine and food lovers looking for a luxury travel experience. We will also be taking Centurion Members to Royal Ascot, the highlight of the British summer season with dining in a private box, and invite-only Royal Enclosure badges.
