Cast your minds back to Patrick Bateman’s dilemma of never being able to get the ultimate reservation. Sitting at NYC’s top table with a dish of sea urchin ceviche was something to kill for. If you find yourself seeking perfection in your nightlife social scene (hopefully not as our American Psycho friend did), you will be happy to know that the crew from Boujis are set to open a Dorsia – not fictional, but real – in South Kensington on May 25th.
Fraser Carruthers (of Boujis) will open doors to the London party scene who can drink the night away in stylish settings – a £2.4 million refit by Interior Designer George Rose, thank you very much – sipping cocktails chosen by leading mixologists Thomas Gillgren (Sketch) and Fredrik Olsson (Kosmopol).
Contemporary art provided by Whisper Art Gallery will deck the walls of the three venue club. Three? Well, Dorsia couldn’t call itself Dorsia if it didn’t have a private members’ club…
London used to know Dorsia as the Hudson Club – a classic Georgian town house famous for hedonism of days gone by (Jimi Hendrix played his first UK gig there, Tom Jones celebrated his first number 1 and a young Reggie Dwight (aka Elton) played the keyboard). Now refitted to both preserve heritage and flourish in contemporary, Dorsia’s private members club is appropriately in the basement whilst the bar upstairs is open to both members and the public. Though they might not actually serve sea urchin ceviche, the standalone restaurant @ Dorsia is headed up by culinary guru, Alexander Baillieu. Serving up a menu of “Modern European dishes”, Dorsia is next on the hitlist of London restaurants.
Excited about the opening? We are.
