The french superclub the place for celeb spotting
The French import is fresh out of Cannes, and it’s every bit the glam and glitzy establishment that you’d expect. At 14,000 sq ft, and set over three floors, we’re looking at a club that’s roughly the equivalent size of three basketball courts. There are eight elevated VIP areas, with 55 tables collectively and mega views out across the dancefloor, while the main bar, measuring a whopping 15 metres in length, sprawls across the ground level. And when it doesn’t have a musical mega-act at the helm, the tunes are a mix of current R&B peppered with a load of old classics.
