I am fresh off the plane from London and playing catch up.
We had a very late evening with friends living in London. They were kind enough to take us to their club which was a true feast for the eyes. It was one of the most exquisite and over the top interiors I have ever witnessed. Of course, photography is strictly forbidden but I did some digging and found these images to give you a peek at the pretties.
“For any expat traversing the London nightlife scene, Loulou’s may be the equivalent of walking Downing Street and believing that you can somehow talk your way inside. Loulou’s is located inside Robin Birley’s 5 Hertford Street membership club — within a rougey maisonette along Mayfair’s Shepherd’s Market. Interiors were done-up in a modern day Mad Ludwig’s townhouse with node sof African Queen and Truman Capote lent by designer Rifat Ozbek who orchestrates a series of lounges, drawing room, Loulou’s nightclub and signature restaurant that’s currently London it-club to be.
With 5 Hertford Street in Mayfair Robin Birley has updated the classic London club for a new generation. This brand new London members’ club opened on the 11th of July 2012 in Shepherd Market in an amazing Bordeaux-coloured 23,000 sqft 18th century townhouse.” VIA

We didn’t see this chap there but we did spot his first wife!
