Paper is no longer open. Bonbonniere has reopened in its former venue.
The return of Paper, one of the top celebrity clubs of the Naughties, is definitely a boost for West End nightlife.
Keira Knightley celebrated her 21st birthday at the venue and guests also included Sienna Miller, Jay Z, Natalie Portman and P Diddy.
The club was located in the basement of Café Royal in Piccadilly but closed when the building was converted into a hotel in 2009.
Celebrity favourite Paper reborn after eight years away It reopened at a site in Wardour Street formerly occupied by Peter Stringfellow’s Angels club, following a £1 million refurbishment.
“I’ve had all of our celebrity clientele back in touch wanting to know when we are opening and we can’t wait to see them all again, but as far as we are concerned everyone who comes through our doors gets treated like a star. The return of Paper nightclub to London has been a long time coming and it’s going to be one hell of a party.”
Mr Farquharson has signed a five-year lease on the 10,000 sq ft site which includes a ground-floor cocktail bar called Dirty Harry’s, a VIP room and a selfie booth.
