Dolce Vita; life of heedless pleasure and luxury
It’s important to have a ladies night at least once a month. Location is always a great dilemma when choosing where to go. I have selected a few places that I personally love. There is a romance of life when you find something exquisite. When you share good food with good people in a beautiful setting it is the definition of La Dolce Vita.
The salmon and Rice dish is incredible, the lobster salad is phenomenal and there is fantastic Saki. The ground floor turns into a lounge after 11 playing great music by a DJ whilst you eat. You can never go wrong with Nobu.
Novikov is a great fusion restaurant that offers 2 types of cuisine, Italian and Asian. There is an amazing bar and lounge downstairs in the basement. The ambience of the restaurant is different and aspects of it are like an old Russian Market.
China Tang at The Dorchester
My favorite restaurant in London for its ornate decor and most incredible tasting Chinese cuisine. Owned by David Tang, this by far outshines any Chinese cuisine restaurant in London. It also has an eclectic ambience and great service. Perfect for a ladies night, if you have more than 10 guests they also have great private dining with connectable iPod for a more personalized dining experience.
Annabel’s, Berkeley Square
Annabels is great for Dinner and Dance. Featuring an Underground dining experience complete with a 70’s style dance floor.
There is a DJ and live band most nights. The menu and food at Annabels hasn’t changed in 50 years. The steak Diane is an interesting dish as they cook and flambé in front of you at your table. Created and named after his wife, Lady Annabel, Mark Birley created Annabel’s to recreate their home. They liked to entertain their guests for a nightcap after going out because there was lack of. They would gamble, play poker and socialize with high society. Annabels has not changed its formula and it hasn’t had to.
Annabels recently made a documentary documenting the formula for its 50 years success, ‘A String of Naked Lightbulbs’.

The Arts Club, Dover Street
The arts club established is 1863 by Charles Dickens and is a meeting place for men and women involved in the creative arts either professionally or as patrons.
Arts Club has 3 restaurants, 2 cocktails bars and a live band. It recently opened a japenese restaurant on the top floor. Great music and Great vibes.
