ALCOTRAZ BAR: Alcotraz, a bar that’s based on Alcatraz Prison and where you’re put in real cells and wear prison-issue orange jumpsuits. Why put yourself through that and face the stern-eyed scrutiny of the tough-looking American warden and prison guard? Well Alcotraz Bar on Brick Lane will answer this question in one wild and weird immersive experience.

MCQUEEN: An award-winning cocktail bar in Shoreditch named after super cool 1960s and 70s American movie icon Steve McQueen, it’s going to be just as super cool, right? Pretty much. Well actually not just a bar – a grill restaurant and boutique nightclub as well with gold framed black and white photos of the King of Cool never far away.

DEAD & FAMOUS, NO41 CLUB: What’s Hot London? attended the Dead Famous & Glamorous Resurrection Soiree on the weekend organised by Elite Parties at the N.41 Club in Kensington to pay homage to Hollywood greats such as Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo as well as rock’s iconic geniuses who left before their time but with an unmatchable legacy.

KENSINGTON ROOF GARDENS: With a flock of pink flamingo’s prancing about in its beautiful Iberian-themed gardens and running streams, this Grade II listed nightspot and restaurant had set the tone for luxury and celebrity cool since the 1930s but owners Virgin say it will now permanently close. Virgin Limited Action took over the lease in 1981 and made it a must-visit for rock stars and royalty, hosting parties, club nights, awards ceremonies and all manner of glam get-togethers.

VENETIAN MASQUERADE BALL: The Late Night Cocktail Club’s Venetian Masquerade Ball at Kensington Roof Gardens on Saturday night featured acrobats, contortionists, stilt walkers, fire and glow dancers as well as a live saxophonist freestyling to the DJ set. Oh and of course cocktails.

ROYAL MASQUERADE BALL: The Libertine is a luxury club in Fitzrovia visited by A-listers such as Drake, Usain Bolt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton. But you’d be amazed they even found it! Tucked away just off Oxford Street, you could almost miss it.

ICE BAR: It’s so cold in there that you are given a thermal cape to wear. Also cocktails with ice in the average bar cannot compare to a bar where the actual glass is made of ice and you are given gloves to stop you freezing to death while trying to hold it!
