NightLife: Idris Elba to Open Cocktail Bar in London

The Waldorf Hilton has opened the new cocktail bar and live music venue The Parrot, it is a 67-seater bar and a collaboration between Hilton, Idris Elba, and twin brothers Lee and Nicky Caulfield.

The bar will host unannounced secret shows, including regular DJ sets from Elba, and is the first London bar to have branded Aston Martin as it’s  own chauffeur-driven service.

An impressive drinks list include Parakeet – Maker’s Mark bourbon, Wray and Nephew rum, banana essence and white Peruvian pepper- small plated dishes to be dished out “repurposed seashells” include Wagyu beef with pickled enoki, wasabi and pineapple, and poached lobster with mango, chilli coconut and lime.
