Alexan­dra Palace

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Magazine - - Seven Days -

No one looks good in orange, es­pe­cially not when co­or­di­nated with a painted face and a gin­ger afro. But the Dutch don’t care – so proud are they of their gar­ish na­tional colour they will hap­pily do head- to- toe tan­ger­ine. So pre­pare to be Tango’ed at Alexan­dra Palace, which Hol­land has com­man­deered as a gi­ant Heineken beer hall host­ing medal cer­e­monies for its ath­letes. There’ll be cafés and restaurants serv­ing Dutch del­i­ca­cies like, um... Edam and... chips drenched in may­on­naise. But you’ll need to be­friend a Dutchie, per­haps Lara Stone (right), pretty sharpish as you’ll only be al­lowed in if one of your party has a pass­port. ( hol­land­heineken house. nl)
