Last night I was invited to the launch of a fantastic new club called Barbarella on the Fulham Road. Following a £2million refit, Barbarella has relaunched into a stylish restaurant, bar and club. Picture dark panelled walls, eclectic pictures and waitresses dresses in pin-up style outfits, designed by Pearl Lowe. 

As we arrived, we were ushered down the covered walkway into the subterranean entrance, and met by trays of champagne, canap├ęs and some very beautiful people, strutting their stuff in the most elegant of surroundings. Unlike lots of clubs and bars, this one oozes sophistication, it almost feels like a sumptuous living room in a beautiful townhouse, rather than cold, uber-modern design. The mirrored dancefloor is pretty special, especially if you want to check out your dance moves (Mr. G had to be physically restrained). 

The cocktail menu is fabulous, a really great mix of classics and new drinks, and the food that I tried was delicious. Despite lashing rain (and Mr. G arriving in a plastic poncho, it was grim), we had a fabulous night, celeb spotting and pretending to be young again! I know I'll be heading back to Barbarella just as soon as I can book a babysitter.
