Park Chinois is luxury at its bling-bling finest. When we wanna feel like we're dining in some sultry noir movie, then this 1930s Shanghai-inspired joint is where we head. With speakeasy vibes, opulent velvet curtains, more gold than Mr T's safe deposit box, this Mayfair hotspot is giving off serious sex appeal.
It's about forsaking the vodka in favour of the champagne; it's about nostalgic romance and dinner dance aesthetic; it's about old school values versus new money. Travel to a land where contemporary Chinese meets French Rococo meets 1930's New York. And at 15,200 square feet with the ability to accommodate up to 350, it is glorious and epic.
The first floor features a singer and pianist, while Club Chinois downstairs showcases a seven-piece band and vocalist, dancers and performers wild enough to distract you from that legendary plate of black cod. BarChick's still salivating over the Peking duck, caviar, soft shell crab, Angus beef short ribs and the like; it's everything that decadence strives to be and beyond. But don't drain all the battery on your phone snapping your food/videoing the live music - you’re gonna want to save some for those toilet selfies. It doesn't get sexier than gold swan neck taps.
