The Big Idea: Art Deco sophistication meets 90’s disco culture
2 & 8 Club is situated in the heart of glamorous Mayfair, in the basement of Morton’s Private Members Club at 28 Berkeley Square. The partnership between Jake Parkinson and Carlo Carello (former Boujis nightclub owners) offer up a private member’s club for the rich, famous and royal crowd. The basement nightclub’s name is Cockney rhyming slang for ‘in a state’ and that’s the modus operandi of this club – to get you partying until the small hours.
Art deco bespoke mirrored frames on the walls display a series of black and white photographs from the infamous fashion photographer Norman Parkinson (Jake’s Grandfather) and the overall black and gold decor is sophisticated and luxurious. The well advertised
“stiletto- proof” banquettes doing nothing more than encouraging debauched behaviour.
