Drama Park Lane is the club setting trends on the London club scene. Located on the site next to the Hilton Hotel near Green Park, it used to be known as Whisky Mist, but now Drama Club is a nightlife experience for innovators, rule-breakers, and dreamers. If you miss Whisky Mist, you may not find the same feel at Drama Club London, but you will definitely appreciate the features they have retained. Founded by the creators of Cirque Le Soir London,
, with the energy of Nick House,
who founded the original Whiskey Mist and Mahiki, Drama London is an amazing place that will never cease to surprise you. Stop by for one of the most unique experiences you will ever have at a club in London.
Designed for London's elite party goers, Drama nightclub should be at the very top of your list if you love fun and adventure and want to party in style. A place that calls itself a “chaotic utopia of hedonism” cannot be anything but a pure delight, after all. It invites fun and games, plenty of drinking, and wild dancing all night long. You will be expected to dress with class. Women ought to wear their little black dress or equivalent, trendy high heels, and immaculate hair and make up. Men ought to dress smart casual. The customers are on the red carpet at Drama, so you better look the
You won't find just anyone on the floor at Drama London. With a capacity for three hundred attendees, it is highly selective when it comes to just who gets on their dance floor, and only the elite of London's clubbers gets in. The guest list is the only way of beating the strict queue and getting inside without having to worry. Don't be like the rest: be a VIP guest. Queuing at the door is not at all the way to go. Instead, book yourself a table to enjoy the full VIP luxury experience. Champagne will be served in neon supermarket trolleys, there is a wall made of Japanese lucky cat
figurines known as Maneki-Neko, the wallpaper is scented with the flavour of bananas, and inflatable fun can be found in several corners of the room.
To make you feel even more like you are in a celebrity's home, the whole place is designed like a pop art experiment, full of stunning art, bold colours, and amazing FUNKTION 1 sound systems that keep the music pumping all night long. Wherever you are you will be able to enjoy every single
beat from the expert DJ all night long. The tunes? Don't say we didn't warn you: They are modern, twisted, eclectic, wild. Every bone in your body will be begging to dance. If you don't like loud, modern, obnoxious music, then this might not be the place for you. But if you love it, then you will be the life of the party.
The best place is definitely its famous Gold Room
. If Drama makes you feel like a VIP, the Gold Room will leave you feeling like pure royalty. The room offers a truly personal catering service, with staff waiting on you hand and foot, drink after drink, and endless fun.
Keep an eye on the
prices, because the drinks are so delicious you will be spending a lot.
THE DRESS CODE AT DRAMA
Dress codes can be confusing, so let us help you with our detailed, visual guides!
What is recommended:
The recommended look is the best one not just to get you in, but to make you feel at home.
Generally at Drama the men wear smart casual clothes at least, ideally more smart or black tie optional. Button down shirts are the most common choice, but feel free to explore a bit with colours and textures rather than stick to plain white and linen. Blue jeans, black jeans, and suit trousers are all popular choices. Men's jewellery can be worn if subtle.
Generally the women wear chic and sexy clothes. Around half of all the women will be in dresses, and the other half will be in sexy two piece outfits, such as a top and a miniskirt, a crop top and leggings or jeans, etc. Almost every woman will be in trendy high heels. Jewellery is quite subtle, and make up is graceful, usually with a bold lip or a bold eye but not both. Most women will have their hair loose.
What is allowed:
The allowed clothes are the full range of what will get you through the door.
Black tie optional for men includes:
-three or two piece suit
-button down shirts with full sleeves (if you keep your jacket on you can get away with short sleeves)
-black polished leather (or faux leather) shoes
Black tie optional for women includes:
-long cocktail dresses in jewel colours
-little black dress
-high heels 2-6"
What is a grey area:
The grey area are clothes that might be allowed some days/events and not others, or that are at the discretion of door staff. In short, if you happen to be in the area, wearing these clothes and want to check the club out, then maybe see if you can. You might get lucky. But if you are actually planning a night here? Avoid these and go for something closer to the dress code.
Although in principle this venue is black tie, they actually have some allowance for a range of clothes, as long as the event is right.
Jeans are a grey area. Although they are definitely not black tie, they are often accepted if they are part of an otherwise smart look.
Black tie optional doesn't actually mean the tie is optional. Normally, you have to wear a tie, the "optional" just means you don't have to wear a tuxedo. But at this venue, a smart look without a tie is often acceptable.
A dress that is a bit short or low cut for a black tie optional event might be allowed if it is otherwise very smart. Think of a short cocktail dress with a covered bust line, or a long dress with a deep scoop: not perfect, but definitely acceptable.
Flats are normally not allowed for women, but the door staff might make an exception if your look is otherwise neat and smart.
What is forbidden:
These clothes will get you turned away at the door, even if you are on the guest list, have a table with bottle service reserved, and it's your birthday. Sorry.
No t-shirts. Just no. Not even polos.
No informal shoes. Sandals, running shoes, timberlands, hiking boots, knee-high boots, flip flops, converses, etc, are all out. Smart shoes only.
No sportswear. Nothing that looks like sportswear. Not even "fashion" sportswear, and definitely nothing actively sporty.
No puffy jackets. They might be a great trend for the winter, but take them off at the door and check them into the cloakroom.
No oversized or saggy clothes. Nothing that sags. Nothing that doesn't look fitted. Your clothes don't need to be tailored to your body, but you don't want people to not even be able to tell what your body shape is underneath.
No hats. Again, check them into the cloakroom or don't bring them.
