Baroque reviews



By E.

Housed within The Playboy Club and formerly known as The Cotton Tail Lounge, a complete renovation executed by Gerry Calabrese - Hoxton Pony owner and son of the cocktail maestro Salvatore Calabrese - sees the opening of Baroque. Expect lavish interiors, old school glamour and a very expensive champagne list.

The Venue
Easily reached from Hyde Park Corner, brushing shoulders with The Metropolitan Hotel, The Four Seasons and The Hilton, Baroque certainly has an enviable post code. The entrance to The Playboy Club boasts a large reception area and just to the right is a door leading through to Baroque. Huge vases with plumes of black and white feathers instantly set the tone and to the left, red velvet curtains pull back to reveal a raised platform, which acts as a stage for the many live performances here. Above, the ceiling is swathed in ethereal white drapes and, appropriately, baroque artwork intermittently covers the walls, as do antique mirrors curated by CID Interiors.

Guests may sit at small round tables with a lamp in the middle - covered in floor-length white tablecloths, it feels a little ‘Godfather’ like - whilst there are some red velvet booths encrusted with crystals for larger groups. The DJ booth is a dramatic centerpiece and looks remarkably like a huge, decorative gold sleigh. The whole look is an extravagant mix of golds and reds and feels part of a different era.

The Atmosphere
If the idea of The Playboy Club conjures up notions of sleaziness, think again. The Playboy Bunnies are glamorous and their hair and make-up is perfect, but these girls ooze old-school splendour, too. The crowd, made up of couples and mixed groups, is a spread of well-heeled spenders and trendy Hoxton folk, a firm nod to Gerry Calabrese’s former club following.

The Music
There are live music performances on a regular basis from both the in-house band and special guests too. The sizeable DJ booth has already seen the likes of Mark Ronson take to the decks, and with both resident and guest DJs, the music is an eclectic mix.

The Drink
Champagne seems to be the order of the day here. Champagne towers made out of coupes modelled on Marie Antoinette’s breasts (seriously) may be pre-ordered by guests and then filled with a vintage champagne of your choice. However, a vintage tipple will certainly set you back, with a Magnum Salon 1964 going for £25,000, while a Jeraboam V.C Brut 1945 is a mere £12,700! It may be ludicrously priced, but this is a vintage art form and Baroque boasts one of the most extensive vintage champagne lists in Europe. An exclusive new cocktail list see more affordable Martinis served in signature coupette glasses and guests can order platters of oysters, caviar and fruits de mer to enjoy alongside in true hedonistic style.

The Last Word
Baroque is decadent to the very core, launching a whole new concept in luxury. Enjoyable and entertaining, but largely one for the big spenders - Hugh Heffner would definitely approve.
