crEATe - A celebration of fresh local talent, a collection of creatives working alongside each other to showcase a love for Food Art & Music.
A Night of interactive culinary madness and live art paired with music to set the scene for an event of extraordinary nature.
Inspired by a career in hospitality, music and design, three years ago Rob Hallas somehow fell into his biggest passion - cooking. His main influences have always been weird and wonderful creatives such as Salvador Dali and Heston Blumenthal. He intends this new venture to be a small insight into his experiences over the years and bring all of my passions to life for five hours of creative wonderfulness. Then arrived Bastards Bistro, which came about after gaining experience working everywhere from nightclubs to festivals to street food to fine dining restaurants and was a result of Rob wanted to collate all his skills and experiences and create a brand that could cover all bases and be accessible to everybody.
Fast forward to May 2021, Rob and long time friend Rob Chadwck come together to combine the music with food and offer a 360 take on their experience including visuals to embody and crEATe an all encompassing atmosphere. The ethos for the brand is “Food Cooked with Booze, Served with Booze – Eat like a pig, Drink like a Bastard.” The original idea for the pop up event was to serve a dish paired with a drink using the same alcoholic ingredient. For example, one of the courses would be Oyster with Tequila Butter served with a Margarita. The menu and concept are designed to be fun and a bit of a fuck you to fine dining. Think “fancy food” to be accessible to somebody that would normally just go out and be happy having steak and chips. We will also be combining a playlist for each event, normally consisting of music you would not expect to hear when eating at a “fine dining” experience.
