The Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, WC2B 4DD
Idris Elba has gone club tropicana and we’re into it. The actor and DJ has just added The Parrot to his repertoire with brothers Lee and Nicky Caulfield: his latest project is a 60-seater cocktail bar and live music venue set in the Waldorf Hilton. Cocktails are of course tropical themed, with a range of small plates from chef Karl Richardson also available to order. Meanwhile the Yamaha London Stage within the bar will host nightly entertainment and stints from the professional house band, as well as unannounced secret shows. Oh and don’t forget the chauffeur-driven Aston Martin available for transport to and from the venue. As far as wildcards go, this is a fun one.
