VIRGIN PIONEERS FIRST POP-UP RESTAURANT AT AIRPORT

This summer Virgin Atlantic teamed up with one of London’s most talked about restaurants, to offer the first ever pop-up at an airport. Ceviche is a Peruvian restaurant based in Frith Street, Soho and has fast become one of the most critically acclaimed restaurants in London.

The pop-up was offered to Upper Class customers travelling through Virgin Atlantic’s Heathrow Clubhouse from 12th to the 18th August and was positioned in the exclusive Loft area of the award winning lounge.

This Ceviche pop-up is a first at Heathrow and served delicious, healthy Peruvian dishes including Drunk Scallops (king scallops, serviced with pomegranate, Pisco and coriander oil) and Ensalada de Quiona.

“Our aim at Virgin Atlantic is to constantly surprise our customers when they travel with us," said Mark Murphy, our Clubhouse Food and Beverage Executive. "Ceviche is famous as one of the most exciting new cuisines around and we are so pleased to be partnering with them to open the first ever pop-up restaurant in our Clubhouse at Heathrow. It’s our aim to offer Upper Class customers  an ever-changing experience and this will give them the chance to enjoy the tastes of Lima with the buzz of Soho before they fly.”

“At Ceviche we love doing things people have never done before. Innovation is key in what we do and above all it’s fun to do new stuff," said Ceviche's founder Martin Morales. "We love serving Peruvian food, dishes and cocktails and so we are excited by our collaboration with Virgin Atlantic. There has never been a pop-up at an airport and we think the combination of our world-class food with Virgin Atlantic’s world-class Clubhouse is perfect. It’s only on for a week so it’s a real one off treat for us all.”

Aside from nibbling, visitors to the lounge can enjoy a stylish haircut in the salon, choose from a range of Dr Hauschka treatments in the spa; enjoy a game of pool in the Den, or enjoy a delicious cocktail at the 14 metre long bar.
