Models In The Mist / Hg2 MUST-PARTY

While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea (or indeed, cocktail), there’s no denying that Whisky Mist is a force to be reckoned with on London‘s famously fickle club scene. After all, it’s been a favourite with the trash/fash pack for quite some time. Aimed at Champagne-quaffing celebrities and queue-jumping rich kids, the branch at the Hilton on Park Lane has become something of an institution; just Google Image it, and you’ll see pages of ‘slebs stumbling out in all kinds of embarrassing, crotch-exposing, paparazzi-paying positions. It makes sense, then, that owner and all-round club kingpin Nick House is opening two new branches; one at Harrods this spring, the other in Beirut. As if the Lebanese capital needed anymore proof that it’s fast becoming one of the world’s most self-consciously cool places to party, Whisky Mist Beirut further cements its reputation. Opening towards the end of April in the recently-refurbished Phoenicia – read more about its makeover here – the new outpost will be able to hold 350 revellers beneath a ceiling embedded with LED lights, a dance floor flanked by plush leather banquettes and a VIP area dressed with black velvet and mirrors (in which image-conscious guests can check themselves out, presumably). While there will be a number of cocktails for clubbers to charge to their daddies’ credit cards, we rather like the sound of the Royal Monarch Quaiche; designed for up to eight people, it arrives in a showy silver chalice and contains Glenmorangie 1981, Japanese Matcha Single Estate, sidr honey, Sicilian lemon juice and Cristal Champagne. Love it or hate it, there’s no stopping its arrival.
