Lollipop (with Seb Lyall)

We first became aware of Seb and his company, when they transformed a caravan into immersive cocktail experience, ABQ – based on the ground-breaking TV series Breaking Bad. Since then Forbes have declared how his company, Lollipop “have successfully cracked the code of immersive cocktail experiences”, Seb’s been interviewed on CNN, and (via a Bletchley Park inspired bar) launched London’s first naked restaurant (Bunyadi). So what next? How about an immersive fun house, where all you need for one night, is under one roof! Hear some of Seb’s incredible insights into business, entrepreneurship and the true meaning of that much lauded term ‘immersive’. 00:30 Recap on last week with Skuna Boats 02:00 Long Road Festival 05:30 This week on the podcast 07:05 Seb Lyall enters the studio 07:33 The worlds first naked restaurant, the press achieved and a concept countering “beach body ready” 10:45 Recruiting for a naked restaurant 12:20 How the company has pivoted to more permanent venues and restaurants 13:15 ABQ - the immersive Breaking Bad inspired experience 15:10 How to create interest in a bar with no name, that doesn’t exist 16:25 The tweet that changed London 19:50 The Bletchley inspired bar and how the menu is the game 23:45 Why Lollipop 24:25 The biggest problem they face - staffing 27:25 Immersive food and beverage 28:30 How the IP works when producing tv inspired content 32:40 The Grid (Escape Room) 34:20 Having a de facto place to go for experiences 36:17 A basic formula for an opportunity in business 37:50 Immersive fun houses 41:20 Finding venues 43:45 Difficulties of expansion 47:22 Why Seb does it 48:50 Lollipop social media 51:10 Recap on Seb 52:18 The Doggo style market 54:52 Shout About Social Media You can reach the guests here  Instagram: @SebLyall @ABQLondon @TheBletchley @theGridLDN @ABQParis @journeyLDN Website: https://www.WeAreLollipop.co.uk Mentions Skuna Boats Long Road Festival Jake Morell Seb Lyall Forbes The Worlds End (Chelsea) Moonshine Saloon Alcotraz Grid LDN Breaking Bad Saul Jessie Pinkman Walterwhite ABQ Give us a Shout on #ShoutAbout Instagram:          ShoutAboutLondon Facebook:            ShoutAboutLDN Twitter:                ShoutAboutLDN Instagram:           ShoutaboutStuart Please subscribe and rate us!
