We’re finally out of what feels like the longest month of the year and heading (slowly) towards Spring! Dry Jan is over (hurrah!) and we’ve got tonnes to look forward to as well as a new Nobu Café, Super Bowl and Benares Bottomless Lunch! Here’s The Luxe List February.
New Opening – Coyote Ugly Piccadilly Circus
High octane cowboy themed bar brand Coyote Ugly is opening its second venue in the heart of the capital in the Spring. Previously a souvenir shop under the Zedwell Hotel on Shaftsbury Ave, the 3am licence should allow for plenty of drinks and dancing on the bar in the trademark style of the 90’s hit movie.
Super Bowl LVII at The American Bar at The Stafford London
There couldn’t be a more apt place to watch this years Super Bowl than at The American Bar at The Stafford London. With sports and Rihanna fans alike desperate to get in on the action, there’ll be special themed beers and cocktails on the night as well as multiple screens so you don’t miss a thing. With table bookings from 10.30pm, earlier guests will get to indulge in the US theme food which will include chipotle chilli dogs, mac and cheese bites and sticky buffalo wings.
