Press Release - Joining Forces with Great Partners

We Love Collaboration

Since setting Rebel up in the spring of 2015, we’ve always celebrated and cherished the spirit of collaboration. What started out as a necessity, has become a core part of our ethos and our approach to the work that we do and how we run the business. 

In the early days, we formed strong partnerships with other agencies and a small network of freelancers, which allowed us to offer a really great product to our clients whilst we figured out exactly who we were and how to do the best work we possibly could. This meant we could be affordable, agile and really dynamic whilst always striving to offer brilliant service and unbound creativity to the people with whom we work. Four years later, and both of these objectives remain at the heart of everything we do.


Introducing Dare Hospitality

Over the past eighteen months, it’s been a pleasure to have worked on a number of projects with two genuinely great people who began their journey into the world of hospitality consultancy at the beginning of 2018. Barnaby Ingram and Dino Koletsas set up Dare Hospitality with a similar vision to create, develop and implement unique bar and restaurant experiences for operators around the world.

Considering our shared passion for all aspects of the hospitality industry, our ego and hierarchy-free approach to work, and the fact that apart from anything else, we all really get on, it was almost inevitable that conversations turned to how we may benefit from working together more closely.

A Great New Partnership

So it’s with great excitement that we can announce that The Rebel Agency and Dare Hospitality have now joined forces under the umbrella of The Rebel Group, and over the next couple of months we will be continuing to merge our operations, project management and administrative functions - the boring but essential bits. 

This means that we’re now perfectly placed to offer a brilliant set of products to our clients that now includes drinks development, bar consultancy, guest experience programmes and training; sitting alongside the strategy, concept development and branding products that Rebel has been delivering in house for the last four years.

Individually and collaboratively, we’ve completed over 30 successful projects for international hotel groups such as Marriott and Hilton, brilliant high street operators such as BrewDog and Rosa’s Thai Cafés and a host of independent operators such as recently opened Endo at The Rotunda and Ichibuns. Together, we’re looking forward to consolidating our experience and network of great people and growing a really great business.

Can We Help You?

The Rebel Group is all about helping ambitious hospitality business to innovate and win in their market, and we’re now better placed than ever to deliver truly original and commercially viable restaurants, bars, products and consultancy to businesses of all shapes and sizes both at home in London and around the world. 

So do let us know if there’s a project, opportunity or a seed of an idea that you want to talk to us about. We’d be delighted to hear from you.

-Lucy, Barny, Dino, Ed and all at Rebel
