Owen and Engine: More Mash than Bang(ers)

As a marketer, I often wonder how it is a place seeps into your subconscious.  “I’ve heard great things” turns into you recommending to other people, which inevitably turns into a reservation. The ambiance tries very hard to mimic an iconic London pub experience, with some success, though, given the price point- one would expect …
