TRIED & TESTED: SUPPERCLUB

May 3, 2010


Most striking feature:

Lounge. In a world where everyone uses the word ‘lounge’ to promote their beds and the lazy way of going out, there was a first. And that one goes to the Supperclub. Started in Amsterdam, where I visit some After Fashion Week party’s, followed by Singapore, Istanbul, San Fransisco and the recently opened one in London. Nowhere in the world are the beds so large, is the service so extremely good and the entertainment so, uhm, bizarre. Like the man with the didgeridoo I saw in 2004 on the Supperclub Cruise.
