Restaurants & Bars

”It’s our life, our history, our legacy...”

Jason Atherton started out working alongside great chefs including Pierre Koffmann, Marco Pierre White, Nico Ladenis and Ferran Adria at el Bulli, before joining the Gordon Ramsay Holdings in 2001 and launching ‘Maze’, first in London and then another five globally.

Jason left Gordon Ramsay Holdings in 2010 to launch his own restaurant company, Jason Atherton Ltd. His flagship restaurant ‘Pollen Street Social’ opened in April 2011 in Mayfair and was awarded a Michelin star within just six months of opening, alongside 5 AA Rosettes and no.3 in The Good Food Guide’s best UK restaurants.

Since then, Jason’s ‘The Social Company’ has grown into a globally renowned restaurant group, with a portfolio of restaurants which include the Michelin-starred Social Eating House and City Social, as well as Hai Cenato, Social Wine and Tapas and Berners Tavern – named ‘the defining restaurant of the decade’,

Alongside his London restaurants, Jason has also opened critically-acclaimed restaurants in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, Doha, St Moritz and his Michelin-starred restaurant, The Clocktower, in New York.

Jason has written four cookbooks, appeared on several TV programmes, and is a brand ambassador for a number of brands including BMW, Moët & Chandon and Audemars Piguet Savoir Faire.

Jason and his wife Irha support numerous charities, including Hospitality Action, the MSY Charitable Foundation and the David Nichols Spinal Injury Foundation.

“My ethos is to do better tomorrow than I did today. If you can do that every day you can’t help but succeed” Jason Atherton.

Commercial Opportunities

The Social Company provides consultancy services to businesses within the hospitality sector, as well as providing services to upmarket contract caterers and private dining and corporate hospitality events. We also project manage and run new restaurants in association with hoteliers and entrepreneurs.

Social Company restaurants and bars are not clones of one another. Each one has its own identity and characteristics. There’s no set template. We work with interior designers and architects restaurant by restaurant, bar by bar. There’s no single ownership structure. Sometimes, we set up in partnership with hoteliers and other businesses, sometimes on our own.

COMMERCIAL PARTNERSHIPS
The model is a joint-venture project; there’s a synergy between us and our partners and a shared commitment to creating something great – with its own unique identity, recognisable by its values rather than its corporate brand. When we help a hotelier or other business open a venue we ‘second’ a team of key personnel to the project.  Importantly, Jason takes a direct role in quality control – we’re in the project for the long haul. For commercial project enquiries please email here

BRAND PARTNERSHIPS
Jason is a brand ambassador for a number of brands including BMW, Moët & Chandon and Audemars Piguet Savoir Faire, and is always open to discussing new partnerships. For brand partnership enquiries please email here

EXTERNAL CATERING
The Social Company are happy to travel to any location to recreate our restaurant offerings or a create a bespoke offering to suit your requirements. Whether you’d like us to cater for a dinner party at home, or you’re popping up at an exclusive location, we can work with your requirements to create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. For outside catering enquiries please email here
