DISCO London

The opening of Disco (owned by nightclub entrepreneurs Duncan Stirling, above right with wife Zoe Stirling, and Charlie Gilkes, above left with finance Anneke Von Trotha Taylor) has certainly been one of my (Donna) Summer highlights. 

Expect glamorous Pan Am-esque stewardesses, choreographed dance routines and DJs spinning classic vinyl disco tracks from inside an oversized glittery disco ball...  And if that isn’t kitschy cool enough, cocktails will be served in miniature Michael Jackson heads by waitresses and waiters in Kylie-stylie gold hot pants!  

Since the doors closed on Manhattan's Studio 54, there has never been a more opportune excuse to invest in a white flared suit... You can Blame it on the Boogie.

Now everyone...

"She is D, desirable
She is I, irresistible
She is S, super sexy
She is C, such a cutie
She is O, oh, oh, ohhhhh"

Mr Foggs

The imaginative Duncan Stirling and Charlie Gilkes have yet again provided Londoners with an impressively extravagant bar.  Following in the footsteps of BartsMaggies andBunga Bunga, this dynamic duo have recently opened Mr Fogg’s, on Mayfair’s Bruton Lane.  The beautiful bar pays tribute to the adventures of the famously eccentric explorer Philieas J Fogg.  I visited this bar last week with girlfriends and was immediately transported whimsically into the 1870s, being met by an immaculately dressed porter who showed us to our table.  The entire room is brimful with trinkets from Mr Fogg’s travels; quirky artifacts, unusual antiques, portraits, leather luggage, birdcages, maps and an immense hot air balloon (in which he travelled for 80 days) taking centre stage. The drinks and menu are also themed with Victorian Absinthe cocktails served in antique punch bowls.  Extraordinarily unusual, utterly elegant and highly recommended.

Mr.Foggs (15 Bruton Lane, Mayfair, W1) open Monday-Saturday 5pm-1am.
