Awards for Excellence: Cock-up in a Brewery

It was a case of mistaken venue for a US-based capital markets head invited to Euromoney’s Awards for Excellence dinner in July when he found himself at a "dodgy pub" down an alley in East London instead of The Brewery corporate venue in the City. The pub with a similar name is in the East End of London, the former stomping ground for the notorious Kray Twins, who ran an organized crime racket in the 1950s and ’60s and were responsible for the murder of "Jack the Hat" McVitie. "I realized pretty quick that I had got the wrong ‘Brewery’," the banker said. "It was not the sort of place you wanted to stand around in a tuxedo."
