Mayfair / Knightsbridge, London –
Like most of Mayfair’s subterranean clubs, Jalouse has a discreet entrance that can be hard to find – but unlike some of the area’s more raucous venues, the scene inside Jalouse is both stunning and intimate.
The space’s décor and look was designed to channel and embody art, and the thoughtful artistry of the interior is indeed apparent. Everything about Jalouse has a sense of flow, from the sleek black surfaces that curve into one another and the fluorescent purple arches that light the bar, to the magnificent expanse of crystals that hover over the dance floor, and finally to an ever-changing LED chandelier.
The effect is luxurious and chic, and though the venue isn’t large, the space is well thought out with tiers of tables surrounding the dance floor and providing a wonderful perch from which the glitzy denizens of the city’s social set can watch the action as they sip champagne.
The spectacular DJs are known for getting the crowd on its feet, so visitors should expect to join the regulars on the dance floor.
As a membership club, Jalouse is sumptuous yet refined and attracts a young and well-to-do crowd that knows how to party – and perhaps it is that combination of atmosphere and clientele that led the London Club and Bar Awards to grant it the title of Best New Club in 2009.
Young, glamorous, and well-heeled city dwellers and the occasional celebrity, mid-20s to mid-30s.
Mix of Euro pop, electronic, jazzed-up classic rock, and dance hits as well as Latin house nights.
