Exciting things await for ICBRKR… namely, our imminent launch in one of the most cultural, vibrant, and international cities in the world: London. In true ICBRKR fashion, we invited a handful of our most extraordinary connections to dinner in an exclusive London location, The Water House Project. There, they could experience the ICBRKR magic first-hand, and prepare to help us grow our local community.

Relive the highlights from our memorable Friday evening in East London below, and keep an eye out for our official London kickoff, soon to come.

1. We dined in a hidden tile-shop with a Michelin star-rated chef

The Water House Project is located in Bethnal Green, East London, in a cozy tile design studio called Bert & May. By day, the shop sells tiles. By night, Michelin star-rated chef, Gabriel Waterhouse, transforms the venue into an intimate supper club, where he serves a delectable 8-course meal, with wine pairings. Over lime-cured sea trout, pheasant pastilla, and pine needle ice cream served on a frozen rock, our group took over one of the 4 wooden farm tables, and filled the intimate, convivial space with our conversation.

2. Our guests came from all over the world...

A true testament to the beauty of London, our guests came from all over the world to converge at our ICBRKR table: England, Scotland, the U.S., Germany, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Martinique, Colombia… you name it. We spoke English, French, Spanish, and bonded over both common roots and differences.

3. ...and from a wide variety of backgrounds

Beyond coming from across the globe, our ICBRKRs also represented a wide variety of different industries, including music, finance, lifestyle, tech, and even matchmaking! The best part was seeing people move around the table throughout the night to make sure they connected with as many guests as possible.

4. We introduced ICBRKR, and connected on the spot

Since ICBRKR is still new to London, we got to introduce the app to our guests, bond over the best profile pic to choose, and connect using ICBRKR’s geo-location and barcode scanner features.

5. Some of us continued onwards to an after-party where one of our guests was DJ’ing

After connecting all these like-minded souls, several guests continued on to an event nearby where one of our ICBRKRs was DJ’ing. He invited everyone on the spot. Ergo, the bonding power of ICBRKR.
