Forget the will he won’t he be James Bond talk, because this story is actually true and it’s happening soon. Idris Elba is adding another string to his bow so that he’ll now be actor/director/DJ/cocktail bar owner.

That’s right the Luther star and director of Yardie is teaming up with twins Lee and Nicky Caulfield to open The Parrot at The Waldorf Hilton. Whilst we don’t know all the details yet, we can tell you that it’s going to be an intimate set up with space for just 60, cocktails will be tropical themed, there’ll be a live band every evening and there are rumours of hidden menus and secret performances. Oh, and they’ve announced that they will be the first bar in London to offer its own chauffeur-driven car. Well, if it’s opened by a VIP then we all get VIP treatment, too right?

Expected to open in the next few weeks, it’s not long to wait now… now just how to get onto the guest list for what will no doubt be one incredible launch party.

The Parrot is set to open in October 2018 at The Waldorf Hilton Aldwych, WC2B 4DD
