Forman’s Fish Island teamed up with the Mayfair hangout to create a pop-up beach bar version of the club at its Forman’s Fish Island Riviera hospitality venue for the 17 days of the Olympics.

Maddox Club was founded by nightclub proprietor Fred Moss – founder of China White and Movida – in 2007.

Moss will recreate the atmosphere of the club at Fish Island Riviera, a riverside location opposite the stadium complete with beach volleyball court, palm trees, cocktails and food.

He said: "A sporting event the Olympics may well be, but it’s also the world’s biggest society and social event. London has to show that its hospitality can be the best of the best. At Maddox Club we’ve created something very special and we will be bringing that magic to Fish Island Riviera where I know our clientele will want to party during London 2012."  

Lance Forman of Forman’s Fish Island added: "Our partnership with Maddox Club confirms Fish Island as the VIP side of the Olympics. We’ve already hosted 80 per cent of the VIP parties in the run up to the Games and we expect to be hosting athletes celebrating their successes with medals on display, celebrities and media stars throughout the event itself."

He continues: "As we are only a 3 minute walk from the Stadium, with car drop off, pre-booked parking and water transport, this is the Green Room at Games Time. If guests want to experience the fun of the Olympics, soak up the atmosphere and watch the fireworks, they can do all this at Fish Island Riviera and don’t even need a ticket to the sports"  

Maddox Club at Forman’s Fish Island Riviera will be open from the 27 July – 12 August from 11.30am until 2.00am.
