Opening on Monday is Aristocrat, a discerning nightclub for those in the know. And those in the know are said to be international jet-setters, fashion icons and the art elite. Taking its place on Swallow Street, debauch cocktail fuelled nights are the order of the day, (well, night if we’re being pedantic) and will only be for a select 100 at any one time.
As the name implies, they want you to feel like you’re in the house of the most honourable aristocrats. Modern street art sits next to noble baroque-era backdrops. Golden skulls will punctuate the walls, whilst ornate contemporary chandeliers hang from the bespoke copper ceilings. Sixteen bottle-serviced tables and banquettes for ten revellers will line the dancefloor, whilst the bar will be stocked with London’s finest spirits and most lavish Champagnes.
There is no guest list, instead you have to get past the severe door lord, so you better start pulling in those favours now to get in with the right crowd or learn how to impress. If you are already sought after, then you might find yourself the owner of a limited edition key-fob that will automatically grant you access to Aristocrat… It’s like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket all over again.
Aristocrat: Opens 24th October, 9 Swallow Street, Mayfair, W1B 4DE, www.aristocratldn.com
