Cafe de Paris
- Night Out
May 11, 2018
The opulent Café de Paris dates from 1924 and retains something of the glamour of the between-war world. It’s an extravagant space, almost too much in fact, with dripping chandeliers and glitz and gilt wherever the eye alights. There’s a big central DJ booth and a dance floor that’s invariably packed with people. The music is commercial – nothing too edgy or different, tunes the majority would recognize and respond to. The bar is well stocked and the drinks are decent but prices belie the West End location. It’s a fun, central venue, but it needs to be taken on its own terms; it’s not the coolest nor is it the most stylish spot in London, but it caters well to a particular audience. The clientele are dressed to the nines and out to have a good time and a good time is what they have. Big name acts often perform here too, which adds to the appeal.
