Following our delightful visit to the world of French cheeses at Champagne + Fromage, Laura and I headed over to meet Helen and Teffy for a couple of mid-afternoon cocktails at Dirty Martini.
Situated on Covent Garden's bustling plazza, this New York style cocktail bar is intimate, buzzy and dimly lit.
The drinks menu boasts a great number of delicious cocktails - almost too many to choose from! But if for whatever reason none of them take your fancy, apparently your friendly bartender will knock you up whatever your heart desires!
Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday, I'm sure you'll agree.
As we sipped on our fancy martinis we discussed going out on the town later that night. I dropped Carolina at London Lux Guest Lists a line and before we could say "party!", we had a last minute table booked at The Kensington Roof Gardens. Sadly, Teffy couldn't make it along but Laura, Helen and I headed home to freshen up!
You may remember a previous post I've written on Roof Gardens. It's a very glamorous affair like many of the London clubs but what sets it aside is its large outside garden area which is fully heated in the cooler months.
Thanks to Lux we were treated like VIPs as soon as we arrived - no queuing, warmly greeted by our host and settled at our table. Half way through the evening we were even presented with a huge watering can full of a fruity cocktail!
The last minute nights out are so often the best!
No, I don't know what I'm doing in that last picture either!
Lux Guest List is one of London's premier nightclub and event organisers. They're great for getting you on a credible guest list (and you usually need to be on a guest list when clubbing in London), booking you a table or taking the stress out of arranging a birthday do. Highly recommended.
