September this year will see the launch of Vendome nightclub in Mayfair, located on the site that was formerly Pangaea.
Following the success of the award winning Vendome, Walton Street, which won best new bar at the London club and bar awards 2008 consultant Freddie Frampton embarked on a design mission with the legendary and truly original interiors guru Paul Daly to resurrect the dance floor.
Vendome has been created to induce patrons back on to the dance floor and revive the atmosphere of the clubs of old with people from all walks of life partying with abandon under one roof. The look and feel of the space will reflect this carefree attitude, a combination of seventies retro disco, redolent of scenes from the movie Xanadu with bespoke design elements which are distinctly futuristic. Daly has employed an array of bold and colourful furnishings to blast the minimalism of the last decade away.
The focal point of Vendome will be the raised revolving DJ booth in the centre of the club surrounded by a fully circular dance floor- a feature that will cost over a quarter of a million pounds.
By sharp contrast to the futuristic/ 70’s look and feel of the main club the entrance is distinctly “ Renaissance” with peach tinged bevelled mirrored walls and an ornate 16th Century reception desk. The stairs leading to the club are complete with faux snakeskin banisters ….decadence at its height.
The drinks list will again reflect the 1970’s retro /futuristic vibe with some old classic favourites and some molecular mixology.
Vendome has been created to entice us all back to the dancefloor and ultimately have a wild time.
