Edmund Weil

Speakeasy Entertainment
Managing Director
After stints in communications and education, Edmund came to the world of hospitality via the Soho House group. In 2010 Edmund and his wife Rosie realised a long-standing dream by opening iconic speakeasy Nightjar, and 5 years later unveiled his second venture, Oriole in London’s Smithfield. Their bars are known for their delicious and visually stunning drinks, with exotic and hard-to source ingredients, and their original and collectable cocktail menus. Edmund's bars are renowned in the industry for a particularly low staff turnover and he has nurtured the careers of a number of world renowned bartenders, including Marian Beke (who now owns his own bar The Gibson in London), Luca Cinalli (Bar Manager at Oriole), Martina Breznanova (Bar Manager Nightjar), and Gabriele Manfredi.
