Host-with-the-most Mr Cecil Russell George Uff Esq now presides over some 1930s-style Shanghai shindigs in Southwark, promising guests a ‘transformative experience’ along the way. This themed warehouse, party spot and events space plays to London’s current fascination with all things ‘vintage’, and pre-booking is advised for soirées that kick off at 6pm: a £20 cover charge includes live jazz, dancing and cabaret at weekends, when your best period cheongsam, tuxedo or military uniform is de rigueur. By contrast, midweek ‘camomile reclining sessions’ have an ‘informal’ dress code and entry is free. A concise cocktail list offers French concession (Portobello Road gin, watermelon, green tea syrup and basil) and Paris of the East (Belenkaya vodka, Tio Pepe, passion fruit, apple, lemon, wine and aloe vera), while pick-me-up ‘shrubs’ are available if your Charleston feet begin to flag.
