There’s more to Sloane Square than just being the home of Peter Jones and the end of the Kings Road. For the last five years it’s hidden one of London’s most notorious and innovative venues: Tonteria. Hosting the likes of Rihanna, Leonardo Di Caprio and HRH Princes William and Harry, it’s been five years of tequila, frozen margaritas and parties. Now, to celebrate their birthday they’ve only gone and got themselves a new birthday suit.
Relaunching next week, with what we imagine will be a night of debauchery, the legendary haunt is going for a new, mysterious look inspired by the derelict and overgrown walls of the Tulum jungle. The main floor and booths will centre around a decadent giant ‘Day of the Dead’ skull made from LED lights which will be home to the DJ booth. And next to that will be the catwalk performance platform, (because if you’ve been to Tonteria before you’ll know they love their skin-baring, outlandish performances), which will host everything from international acts to body bearing calisthenics. There is also going to be a renewed focus on service and a big VIP area for when you’re feeling super luxe. Regulars, don’t worry the shots train will still be – they couldn’t get lose that.
Living up to its name, (Tonteria means foolishness in Spanish) you can expect a night of cocktails, revelry and mischievous behaviour.
Tonteria: Relaunches 12th October, 7-12 Sloane Square, Belgravia, SW1W 8EG www.tonteria.co.uk
