Piers Adam


Described by the Sunday Times as “the man who redefined how Londoners eat, drink and dance”, Piers Adam has over 30 years’ experience in the leisure sector.

Piers began his entrepreneurial career while at Oxford, where he set up the May Day Ball. From here, he went on to found some of London’s most famous nightclubs: SW1, Hanover Grand and Kabaret. These were followed by the equally popular restaurant and bar, Kartouche.

Following his entrepreneurial success, Piers acted as a consultant for Starwood Capital to advise on the launch of the W Hotel; the first outside of the United States. This led him on to successfully create an array of globally recognised franchises: Mahiki, Whisky Mist and The Punchbowl Pub with Guy Ritchie.

More recently, Piers took over the Craigellachie Hotel in the heart of Speyside, Scotland, where he launched Ciroc Vodka and Copper Dog Whisky.
