Well this is a random one… Idris Elba is opening a bar inside The Waldorf Hilton along with Lee and Nicky Caulfield. Didn’t see that one coming!
The Parrot will be a 60-seat cocktail bar and live music venue, and the trio are promising a “whole host of A-list surprises” including unannounced secret shows and a branded Aston Martin, so guests can be ferried to and from the bar in style. No word on how much that journey will cost but it’ll be more than an Uber for sure. There’ll be a house band, joined by talent from the West End, performing covers nightly and you can soak all that up with tropical cocktails and small plates created by The Waldorf’s Executive Chef, Karl Richardson. We don’t know yet what’s going to be in these drinks or in the food but it’s gonna be “premium” …whatever that means.
It’s five o’ clock somewhere so have a cocktail at one of our fave bars.
Opens October 2018
The Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, London, WC2B 4DD
