VIP Black Room_2

Told you Londoners do know how to party. And they do know how to throw a good party too. Earlier I went to the launch party of the latest fashions from high-end Parisian lingerie brand, Chantal Thomass.  The French-inspired themed night titled ‘My Mistress Lives in Paris.’ was held at the regally famous private members club, Raffles on King’s Road in the heart of Chelsea. The evening was invite only, and attendees were couriered invitations printed on red and black French fans.  The club was also celebrating the launch of their newly launched VIP Black Room above the club, with access given to guests that evening via secret password only.

Founder and director of JPR Media Group, the super cool and down-to-earth Jessica Patterson (middle) was there to make sure all her guests were well looked after and having a great night.




The entire club was transformed into a French boudoir, while red lipped models, clothed in the latest collection of Chantal Thomass, coquettishly sauntered across the dance floor mingling amongst guests. With the live DJ playing some really cool music lists, everyone was enjoying themselves. Among the guests was British Actor, Henry Cavill (!!!) , known for playing titular superhero Superman in the 2013 reboot film Man of Steel, and Made in Chelsea star, Jamie Laing, and Raffles senior partner, Jake Parkinson-Smith. I had the pleasure to meet Jake, his genuine care for his guests and sophistication made the night even better. In such an exclusive club, every guests want to feel as welcomed as possible, and Jake was there the whole time to make sure his guests are having a great time!

The night went on until late, I left early since it’s still a Thursday… but since Raffles Chelsea holds a late license secret that has provided a private, hedonistic home for Royalty, Politicians and Celebrities alike to relax unobserved.  It is the only club in Chelsea open from Tuesday to Saturday until 5am, and definitely it is the best place to party! (for your information, most clubs and pubs in London close by 2am…unlike Hong Kong I know…)

Told you Londoners do know how to party and party properly. Even a sexy high-end lingerie launch can be curated into a really posh and fun party night.
