Mode, Notting Hill
What is better than having a big launch party? Having two huge launch parties of course! And that’s exactly what Notting Hill’s newest restaurant and nightclub Mode have done for the last two weekends on the trot.
Previously the Notting Hill Supper Club, Mode is an exquisite dining experience by day, and by night the tables are moved away revealing a large dance floor for people to groove until 3am every Friday and Saturday. Also on Thursdays Mode Live showcases live world music acts anchored by a headline act.
The first launch on Friday 4th April saw the trendy venue host a celebrity guest list plus a surprise DJ set from Brit Award winners Rudimental. We attended the second launch last Friday (11th April), and although it wasn’t a red carpet affair (apart from ImALondoner.com’s appearance of course :p), it was certainly one hell of a shindig.
Walking through to our booth the first thing that grabs the attention is a huge church organ behind the DJ booth (possibly for an impromptu hallelujah session), a replica Spitfire plane hanging from the ceiling and all around the venue there’s artwork by Obey Giant and Andrew Cross. The night promised “a surprise appearance from one of the biggest House DJs in the world” and certainly delivered with Groove Armada taking to the stage at 1am for an incredible two hour set.
The mid to late twenty something crowd were in raptures from start to finish made all the better with an effective air conditioning system, non-pretentious revellers and not a single sighting of champagne bottles being paraded around with an elaborate firework display!
Notting Hill isn’t short of places to party into the early hours, but very few offer a genuine clubbing experience in such comfortable surroundings.
Opening Hours: Wed 6pm – 11pm, Thurs 6pm – 1am, Fri/Sat 6pm – 3am
