Café de Paris doesn‘t need to strive to recreate the grandeur of the Roaring Twenties. It is it. Having opened on Piccadilly in 1924 and attracted a multitude of royalty and society alike it has maintained its inherently opulent character ever since with details like crushed velvet, theatrical ruche drapes and chichi chandeliers. However, these days its miles away from the pomp and circumstance that characterised its early era. Far from being pretentious, Cafe de Paris is above all a good night out where you can let loose in a louche and beautiful room. Its grand mezzanine-ensconced dancefloor lends itself to performances and has often attracted the likes of luminaries visiting London - from Blondie to Prince to P Diddy. The VIP area offers plush red beds to get recumbent on, a great vantage point from which to view the dancefloor. The music tracks toward the commercial yet avoids any overly pungent fromage. For a taste of the Parisian heyday without the haute-couture pressure, Cafe de Paris is a prime suspect, worthy of your investigation.
