    VIBE

    Cool boho chic décor with a grand country chateau flavor. The space is full of creams and grays on the ground floor, bathed in very warm lighting with a funky design aesthetic. The marble bar and its gorgeous, oversized flower arrangements serve as the room's centerpiece; there is a small separate dining section on the dais in the back. The clubbing area downstairs is darker and a bit more opulent, with the later nights tending to get packed with sweaty dancers.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Sexy, hot dress or cool top with stylish heels for a night on the town

    GO HERE WITH

    A fun group of friends up for nocturnal adventures

    CROWD

    Late 20- to 40-somethings who like upscale clubbing in trendy destinations. These are the people dialed into the London scene.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Swanky scene with pretty people, good tunes, and fun ambiance. The cocktails are also well made, upping the festivity quotient.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The service itself: not the most congenial staff, but what club/lounge really has phenomenal service??

    GOOD TO KNOW

    There’s a gallery that’s for hire attached to the club/lounge, a favorite of the corporate and fashion event sets.
