And just like that, Idris Elba has become an even bigger legend.
Adding to his list of talents and ventures – including acting, DJing and producing – our main man Idris is launching a cocktail bar in London, alongside twin brothers Lee and Nicky Caulfield. And the good news is you won’t have to wait much longer, as it opens this coming Friday, November 9.
It’s a pretty good week for Elba as – surprise to nobody – he’s just been named Sexiest Man Alive by American celebrity magazine People. Solid choice, I’d say.
Housed within the iconic Waldorf Hilton hotel, the bar, named The Parrot, is full of surprises. Seating just 60 guests, it will be an intimate affair with gorgeous interiors, tropical vibes and regular secret live shows. There’ll also be a hidden cocktail menu and a chauffeur-driven car for those of you after the true A-List experience.
Alongside an innovative menu of tropical cocktails, there’ll also be a selection of vibrant and tasty small plates, each created by The Waldorf’s Executive Chef, Karl Richardson.
There’ll also be a stage within the bar hosting live entertainment every night, including a house band performing covers of all our favourite songs. Oh and, every now and again, The Parrot will surprise us with totally unannounced shows, from West End and film stars to the next big thing.
The Parrot opens on Friday, November 9. You’ll find it within the Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, WC2B 4DD.
