The definitive guide to London dining & events

...To Eat Drink Dance

Date: 24.09.10 Category:

“As the winter months loom and the rain starts to fall, why travel from bar to restaurant to club when you can have 3-in-1?”

Julia Roberts’ character may use the three step plan of Eat Pray Love to find happiness and balance in her life, but for those with slightly less time and slightly more indulgent values, there is a simpler (slightly more short-term) recipe for happy times: Eat Drink Dance.

Nightclubs and bars that serve good quality food allowing you to seamlessly move from dinner to dancing without relocating are always a popular choice.

In Notting Hill, supperclub London remains an intriguing spot where diners recline, eat, digest and dance all in the same space. The Brompton Club in South Ken is also a popular location for an International and socialite crowd to get stuck in. More central is Maddox, which maintains an understated-cool reputation, Cuckoo with a very decadent dining room and China White, which has now been in its new location for nearly a year.

The Luxx Club is the newest of the bunch and with its boutique feel and catwalk dance floor, is the club of the moment. Further East, Brazilian themed Favela Chic serves authentic Brazilian food and plays great beats for a fun-loving, fashionable but care-free crowd.

Circus is great for food with live entertainment, and the bar afterwards encourages dancing from the willing. Likewise the music from the bar at Nozomi on Beauchamp Place infiltrates through to the restaurant, encouraging the international crowd to tap their chopsticks to the beat.

Or on the other end of the scale, for complete hedonistic escapism and misbehaviour, Austrian-themed Tiroler Hut in Notting Hill doesn’t necessarily cater for dancing, but fans of this quirky restaurant tend not to be able to help themselves in this relaxed, no-frills, marginally crazy little hideaway.
