South Place Hotel is aiming to seduce you this February. If Valentine’s Day wasn’t enough (yes we are already thinking about it, no you can’t ignore it) then they are also unveiling their latest exhibition from international artist Dara Vandor and it’s got seduction written all over it.

Aptly named Lingerie Draw/er the exhibition (which is pen on canvas) will feature sensuous portraits of lingerie, camisoles, frills, lace, feathers and corsets but, and here is the unusual part, all without female models. What emerge are ambiguous pictures which explore both personal and social fantasies.  And on 5th February they’re inviting you down to the launch in their private members’ society space, Le Chiffre and The Secret Garden, to sip on Champagne, peruse the exhibition and then head downstairs for canapés and a live lingerie show. This isn’t your average Thursday night.

The exhibition runs until the 16th February alongside their Valentine’s package which starts on the 12th February until the 22nd February. Rooms come complete with chilled Champagne, sea salt caramel truffles, signed prints of Dara’s work and the beds are strewn with rose petals. Talking about beds they feature Josephine Home bed linen and cashmere-wrapped mattresses – yes you did read that correctly, cashmere-wrapped mattresses, we’ll just let that sink in. And pillow menus, which we’re guessing means you choose your own pillow, you can also order the Bare Essentials intimacy kit from Koibito –we’ll leave that up to your imagine but it does feature a feather – cheeky. Your stay finishes with breakfast in bed to set you up for the day ahead or replenish your energy after the night before…
