Elba’s new joint The Parrot, done in collaboration with twin brothers Lee and Nicky Caulfield, is nestled in the Palm Court at London’s Waldorf Hilton and will function as a 60-seat bar and live music venue.
As you can probably tell from lookin’, the bar is very, very tropical-themed, to the extent that the small-plate food offered up by the venue is served up on ‘repurposed seashells’, according to The Spirits Business.
Thanks to a partnership with Aston Martin, the bar purports to be “the first bar in London to offer its own chauffeur-driven car“, with a (you guessed it) Aston Martin ferrying customers to and from the bar. The chauffeur service also allows customers to pre-order food and drinks on their way over.
If propping yourself up on a bar that Idris Elba has also touched isn’t enough of a draw for you, the bar has also said that Elba will be doing surprise DJ sets at the venue from time to time. Yes indeed, he is a DJ.
