This summer, like every other before it, thousands of teenagers and young adults alike are going abroad in groups to places such as Ayia Napa, Magaluf and Zante to celebrate the Summer holidays. They are all drawn in by the promise of huge parties and raves, the usually overwhelming presence of alcohol, sun, sea and the opportunity of meeting some pretty (sunburnt) girls and guys.
London has some of the best luxury guestlist clubs.
Whilst these holidays can provide many people with great excitement as for many it is their first holiday without being accompanied by their parents. It is still, however, a mystery to me why so many people choose to go abroad to stay in squalid conditions so they can go to overcrowded, hot and sweaty clubs, particularly when some of the worlds greatest luxury clubs are located in central London. Most likely, the prices. Clubs such as Movida, Whisky Mist, Chinawhite and Rose are all very exclusive ‘members only’ luxury clubs that attract the most beautiful and wealthy people. These clubs operate on a business model whereby wealthy clientele book tables in advance, agreeing to pay a minimum spend requirement for their area. Usually a table can accomodate around 5 guests.
Unknown to many, luxury clubs like these are are more accessible to the public who aren’t used to spending over £500 on a bottle of champagne or vodka. More and more people are beginning to use the guestlist services that are provided by various promotion companies, for example, anyone could apply online to be on a guestlist, however not all can gain access. Others tend to try and make friends with club promoters, these are people who work for promotions companies and the very few good ones are able to offer free entry and often some complimentary drinks for their guests.
All in all, it is possible for both guys and girls to have an incredible night at some amazing high-end clubs in London – well known to be the world’s high end club capital, whether at an astronomical expense (commonly associated with table bookings) or for a cost that rivals most of the lower end clubs (by joining a guestlist). Its possible for people from all backgrounds to experience the height of londons luxury that often attracts celebrities from around the world such as Jay-Z and Kanye West. It’s all about who you know!
