While many London clubs may boast banging sound systems, five separate bars or dance floors that light up on beat, The Last Days of Decadence lays claim to pure, unadulterated wish-we-had-thought-of-that style. Imbued with an edge of the burlesque, opulence and glamour, this venue breathes a breath of fresh air into London’s sometimes stuffy East London clubbing quarter.
A bit hard to find—given the lack of signage—once inside your search is well rewarded. The decadence in design, as the name implies, is abundant without going overboard. With a focus on art deco and 1920s aesthetics, you might feel out of place without a flapper dress or pork pie hat, that is, until you get a few drinks deep—which, we might add, are expertly mixed. The club features an extensive cocktail menu with reinvented classics.
