Mayfair’s Park Chinois opulent & luxurious Chinese restaurant’s new immersive show harks back to the glorious era of glamour with elegance and extravagance.
The lavish nightclub ballroom is adorned with pampered princesses and modern-day knights, seated upon padded and quilted, the courtiers of Mayfair drift and swoon and ones senses are caressed both emotionally and via the succulent textures and tastes on offer.

Park Chinois in Mayfair, London, is a stunning bar & club featuring live entertainment and music 7 days a week serving luxury Chinese cuisine
From the moment I entered Park Chinois I knew this was for me, as a man who managed a famous Burlesque Star and looked after one of the country’s top Bellydancers I have a love or even the riskier of you might say a fetish for sensuality and seduction that fills our hearts with a frisson of excitement and lets life’s hum drum drift by.
The entrance in my opinion is unique, as with the doors open you are greeted by the richness not only of the beautifully presented staff but the black fireplace with rich flames, which is something heart-warming and reminded me of a lavish Victorian drawing room.
I was ushered downstairs via a curved staircase lined by smiling staff in modern day vintage and a flit of a feather duster could remind one of the ooh la la’s from the Moulin Rouge in Paris.
Into the bar area where you can see the performance area and tables beyond which reminds one of being in a nightclub.
If you are looking for fashion tips I would be pointing you in the direction of …Clutch Bag think maybe patent red, with a touch of opulent gold and a frivolous and flirtatious tassel …. in fact, I was with a lovely lady of Chinese descent recently who was wearing red tassel earrings and this would have sat perfectly….
The song and dance routines worked well from salsa and swing to 60’s groove and were treated to a lovely rendition from Bob Fosse’s ” The Rich Man’s Frug ” – The Aloof
The restaurant upstairs I must return to as this is really special and had something wonderfully secret about it….
with the feeling you needed to be in the know ….
With hints to the classy opium and illicit goings on from Shanghai in its heady days think red velvet, fantasy glamour but in a most proper way and one could definitely say suitably lavish.
The cuisine in my opinion was just right, from stalwart favourites such as crispy aromatic duck to a selection of Chinese food that was just super tasty but not overtly strange or trying to re-invent the wheel and with the quality of a supremely high standard.
When you go upstairs you will notice the room is filled full of a large amount of super glamorous Asians which I think speaks highly for the standard of food and service and indeed authenticity.
I left a happy bunny and there is no arm twisting going on.
Dress up go in with a smile and let the supremely elegant hostesses, bus boys, waiters and maître d’s swoon, pamper and glide around so you can relax and unwind.
Definitely a wonderfully opulent and relaxing evening in Mayfair.
