Birmingham is known for their thriving nightlife with something to suit anyone: from down and dirty in the East-End to making friends with the royals in Chelsea, London has it covered. Cabaret diner spectacle Paris
Club de Fromage at the Islington School is well known in student circles for offering a cheap-by-London-standards night away. As indicated by the name, per night put in here is all about the cheese. Resident DISC JOCKEY Skinny Jim spins ‘love to hate’ classics from other brands Tiffany and Fresh Kids on the Wedge whilst punters in extravagant dress vie for line up jumps. Club de Fromage has recently made the leap into rock with ‘Hairbrush Heroes’; a new night to be placed on the next Friday of every month at the Jazz Cafe in Camden where the music plan will encompass everything from Dad Rock favourite Generic Springsteen to hair material kings Whitesnake.
Cafe de Paris (Coventry Street, W1D 6BL) is an completely more decadent affair; this opulent venue, decorated in gold and red purple velvet, takes a cue from twenties Berlin cabaret night clubs and regularly plays sponsor to burlesque nights from the ‘Wam Bam Club’ as well as hosting a number of fashion related events for companies such as Boujois and Toni and Guy. Superstars such as Dane Bowers and Sam Cooke also have made recent appearances.
If the idea of a good time runs to interacting with rather more A-list stars then Boujis (43 Thurloe Street London ) is the ultimate vacation spot. Names such as Royal prince Harry and Lindsey Lohan have been spotted drinking cocktails and dancing to superstar DJs such as Joey Negro in this super exclusive hangout – the particular young and beautiful need submit an application for this venue though as the door policy is infamously brutal.
For an international, slightly underground feel, mind to Favela Chic; a bar/restaurant/club that loves to blur the boundaries and has much coveted free entry between 6pm and 1am. This casual place treads the line between Shoreditch cool, Sao Paolo exoticism and Parisian fashionable serving drinks and food to a cosmopolitan audience. Highlights include Carnival nighttime with Caipirinhas made from premium Cachaca and ‘Viva le France’: a French themed night that seeks to make French rock and roll relevant again.
