Aqua Spirit – London Review

Aqua Spirit

Home to an interesting concept sure to leave you wondering why you haven’t been before being, Agua Spirit in London.

It has twin terraces (Aqua Kyoto and Aqua Nueva) that serve classic cocktails along with a selection of signature Japanese and Spanish ones, taking inspiration from the flavors of the restaurants – which are located inside.

Inside they serve great food and offer reservations. However, the outside terrace is a first come first serve basis and only runs in full swing during summer and spring. In the off-seasons guests are welcome to take their drinks outside, but be advised London is cold so bring a few extra layers if that’s going to be you.

The decor inside is black and gold, and give you a somewhat Manhattan feel. With the DJ’s spinning top 40 all night to keep the energy up, you almost feel like you’re being transported to Manhattan while drinking a Spanish/Japanese cocktail. It is quite the scene.

Everyone here dresses smart causal meaning if you think you could wear it on Suits, you can wear it here. They allow “smart shorts” which we’re not sure what that means, but think it means dress shorts… on the days it’s extremely warm. Sportswear is not permitted.

You won’t be asked to wait in a line here, or be charged a cover, but you will be screened at the front to make sure you fit the vibe they’re going for here. Speaking of the vibe, they go for a sophisticated atmosphere geared toward a mature crowd, 28-40ish, that likes to go have a drink after a long week at work or hang out with friends to catch up.

During the terrace season, the outside is packed with great vibes, great drinks, and great vibes. Everyone here seems like they just want to do their own thing but are open to meeting new people if conversation strikes.

Mr.Nokturnal approves.

Cirque Le Soir – London Review

Cirque Le Soir

Cirque le Soir is a worldwide club brand that has made its success off being one of the most unique nightlife experiences. If you’re in London and want to have either a very good night or a very bad night, take a gamble and go to their Cirque le Soir.

This place is pure madness and if you’re ready to party with the circus then you’re about to have the time of your life. If not, definitely avoid this place at all costs. With a mix of fire eaters, aerial performers, burlesque performances, circus acts and more, this place will deliver loveable chaos.

They’re extremely hard at the door, and if you don’t meet their standards, you’re not getting in. You will need to have an ID, be dressed up in your most fashionable wear, and ready to spend a lot of money because this club is one of the most expensive in London. 

Lots of women here dress in designer outfits head to toe, but if that’s not you, then any little black dress will do. Just be sure to accessorize properly, and you shouldn’t have a problem. Gents need to be looking sharp, a nice collared shirt, dress pants, and the shoes you only wear to weddings – anything less and you will be outside wishing you could get in.

The staff, for the most part, is a hit or miss. You’ll either love them or hate them. If you don’t look, smell or act like a millionaire, they won’t be too keen on helping you out or even being nice to you. This venue attracts a shallow crowd, but it is also good for connections and socializing.. you never know who can stumble upon here.

Overall, they have a unique experience you can’t get anywhere else, but with so many other friendly and less posh clubs around London town, it isn’t on our top 10.

MUSIC

The music is more on the top 40, EDM style with a little bit of a hip-hop influence creating a rave feel. Being here is like being on LSD watching a circus act on YouTube except you’re there and people are bumping into you, spilling their drinks, and not using their manners.

BOTTLE SERVICE

Bottle service here is definitely on the higher end, looking around 1,000 euro for a table. Drinks at the bar are also expensive, and the cover charge is 20 euro per person with or without guestlist. If you’re looking to get in without a hassle, our suggestion is to get to know a person on the inside, it is always beneficial. The club suggests an 11 pm arrival because they’re usually packed every weekend.
