Annabel's 'a string of naked lightbulbs'

No comments:

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the premier of Annabel's 'A String of Naked Lightbulbs'. 

Annabel's is a private member's club in the heart of Mayfair.

Ridley Scott Associates approached the club to create a documentary covering its history, in celebration of it's 50th Birthday

The film, includes interviews with a handful of its most exclusive frequenters.  

The premier was held at the Curzon, Mayfair. A cinema that is renowned for screenings that appeal to  those with a real passion for film. 

We arrived on the purple carpet at 6:30 for popcorn and champagne before the screening at 7. 

After a couple of glasses of champagne, whilst everyone chatted and sipped elegantly on the bubbles, we were called into the palatial Screen 1 where the showing was about to commence. 

Plied with copious amounts of ice cream and popcorn we were then ready to take our seats and get an exclusive look into this renowned and elusive London basement.  

With contributors including Anna Wintour, Kate Moss and Goldie Hawn the docu-film takes you into the life and soul of Annabel's, a place where the rich, elite and famous could feel safe and dance the night away far from the prying eyes of journalists or paparazzi. 

The film shows the walls covered in art that founder Mark Birley collected throughout his lifetime, along with vaults lit up with strings upon strings of naked light bulbs. 

Alongside the decadently covered walls you can get a glimpse of the dance floor and a snapshot of Annabel's throughout its life. With clippings of royalty and the elite pasted onto worn pages of a diary, these shots moulded around the interviews really gave the audience a fascinating insight into the club. 

A really fantastic show allowing you to step through the doors of Annabel's, leaving you wanting to let your hair down in London's most famous basement.

A little slice of Annabel's in its hey day.
