It’s a chilly night in London town and it’s a bank holiday the day after so a night of entertainment and glamour with friends is exactly what the doctor ordered.
I grew up as a fan of the golden era of glamour, so mix this up with thoughts of the swinging sixties and you are there.
Personally I was really pleased to see their return to London, for not only the reasons mentioned but the club, lounge, jazz scene is not so familiar in London and so feel this is a great addition. Sat in the heart of Mayfair it fits in well.
Past club clientele has included Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Joan Collins, George Best, Jack Nicholson, John Cleese and Roger Moore and so Gentlemans Butler! fits in well.
Certainly Lenny Beige is perfectly at home. I keep on conjuring up thoughts of the “Lenny Beige Fan Club” screaming or maybe swooning in a….. sorry I better stop as I can feel a whole film script being written ….
I love the terms lounge lizard, rogue, cad and playboy which for me conjure up an era of charm, style and some gentle mischief.
An evening with Lenny for me brought all these as he is certainly a very gifted performer, has a great wit, a sharp mind with an absolutely cracking band and enjoys one of the highest leg kicks from a man I can remember seeing. For some reason, though they look totally different I am reminded of the American comedian Jackie Mason.
Sat in the Baroque club with a friend, two beautiful friends, listening to fantastic, jazzy/bluesy standards all wrapped up in a Sacha Baron Cohen, Matt Lucas, David Walliams and Robbie Williams stylie, as he has worked with all of them and sipping a Margarita feels very good.
As a tv producer I was impressed by the clubs lighting and particularly their sound system, which can often be a let-down but worked very well.
After the show the DJ continues, so no hesitation in recommending
