Danc­ing on at Annabel’s

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

NIGHT owls of a cer­tain age will feel nos­tal­gic at the news that Annabel’s, the Berke­ley Square, W1, night­club founded in 1963 by Mark Bir­ley and named af­ter his wife, is mov­ing. How­ever, it’s only go­ing to be two doors away (at No 46) from the orig­i­nal, which was fre­quented by the likes of Frank Si­na­tra, Elizabeth Tay­lor, The Queen, Ella Fitzger­ald and the Rolling Stones, and will be much big­ger, spread over four floors, with 24-hour din­ing, a cigar sa­lon, terrace restau­rant, spa and basement night­club.

The re­design, in Ro­coco style, is be­ing over­seen by the Martin Brud­nizki De­sign Stu­dio, re­spon­si­ble for The Ivy. Rules re­main the same: gen­tle­men must keep their jack­ets on, mo­bile de­vices should be left in the cloak­room and leather, suede and cow­boy boots are frowned upon. To en­quire about mem­ber­ship, tele­phone 020–7629 2350.
