When we heard that Sophie Ellis-Bexter was performing at the launch party at The Lalit London Hotel and the dress code was glam, we knew that this was going to be a great event not to be missed!

Among the celebrities glamming up the red carpet were Ashley James, Ella Eyre, Jack Guinness , Alice Chater, Roxy Horner, Amy Jackson, to name but a few.

LaLit London Launch

Here’s us arriving at this marvellous five star luxury boutique in Tooley Street close to Tower Bridge wearing Rohmir coat and Coast dress http://photos.hollywood.com/photo/lalit-london-launch-30811613/  Brrr…it was cold that night!

Inside, the architects had done a great job converting this famous school into a superb hotel but still keeping some the “school” themes into the facilities that gives the gracious décor a sense of fun too!


Fashion labels we spotted included Prada, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Ted Baker and some very high Bollywood styles! Only the stellar actor Steven Berkoff (above) dressed down – but then he exudes do much charisma anyway!

The main restaurant, Baluchi at The Great Hall, had been cleared of tables and Pommery champagne flowed throughout the evening and delicious Indian snacks including white crab, salmon, chicken, speciality breads and vegetarian choices were served.  The cuisine is very much contemporary Indian made from high quality organic ingredients!


Looking up there’s the Gallery that offers a spectacular view of the Great Hall, wonderful chandeliers and serves afternoon Tea.

012-1The hotel sports some great bespoke Indian art. So no surprise that we were entertained by some wonderful Indian musicians!


And then next up was Sophie Ellis-Bexter performing a terrific set. So great to see her up close and personal!


Finely crafted cocktails!


A couple of Pina Coladas went down a treat in the Headmasters room!

So we look forward to visiting Lalit again soon!
