BonBonniere Sushi and Hip Hop Party, Marylebone
It could be the world’s most glamorous sweet shop, and probably the only one that serves a cocktail in a Swarovski encrusted Fabergé Egg with a diamond necklace on the side. Launched late last year, BonBonniere is Joe Fournier’s (of Whisky Mist, The Rose Club and Streaky Gin) latest gift to London’s most elite bon vivants.
We were lucky enough to get a chance to experience this incredibly opulent venue at the launch of their new weekly Sushi + Hip Hop Party, where delicious sushi and super-premium cocktails were served up alongside the freshest hip hop beats.
The exclusive invitation-only party, hosted by JPR Media, was packed to the brim with London’s most beautiful people from the fashion world, including models from Storm, Premier and Nevs. The queue outside the club, which snaked all the way up Orchard Street, was like some kind of glittering runway of revellers dressed to kill, rocking everything from Burberry to Stella McCartney – with plenty of flashes of red Louboutin soles.
When we finally made it inside, we couldn’t pry our eyes away from the sumptuous decor and attention to detail of the interiors. Designed by the same team behind the The Armani Hotel, the walls of BonBonniere glisten with mini Fabergé Eggs, and the DJ plays out to the crowd from a huge, glittering Fabergé Egg. This is a place that knows no bounds.
The drink seen to be sipping was Tonino Lamborghini Vodka, a new super-premium vodka launched by the son of the famous car manufacturer, Ferruccio Lamborghini. As with his other luxury Italian products, the vodka is of superb quality and looks effortlessly chic in its elegantly designed bottle. As a lover of a good vodka martini, I was impressed by its smoothness and slight peppery palate.
BonBonniere certainly knows how to throw a party, but judging by its creator’s previous smashes in the nightlife industry, how could we expect anything less? It’s all about the sushi and hip hop – and if you love being amongst beautiful people, enjoying exquisite drinks in sublime surroundings, then BonBonniere should be your new haven. But with a guest list that regularly features huge names like Nicole Scherzinger, Paris Hilton and Jordan Dunn, that’s only if you can get in.
