Very fun Sunday night!!!
We decided to end our Sunday Funday in London at a club. I had done some research prior to our trip and decided on Whisky Mist. I got us on the guest list which got us right in the door (still paid cover).
The place is smaller than I expected, but still a good size. The music was predominantly old school and new American music, but was mixed quite well. The crowd was a nice range of young to old and people from all over the world. The bartenders were awesome and very attentive. The bathroom was clean! Also, it was quite easy to get a cab when leaving...I had heard it might be difficult.
We only stayed for a few hours as we had had quite a full Sunday Funday. However, I could definitely see spending an entire evening here if your energy level allows it.
I would definitely recommend Whisky Mist to anyone looking for a club experience while in London.
I celebrated my 24th birthday here and so got free entry and drinks in the VIP section was looked after well. The entertainment was exceptional with scantily clad dancers girating etc. the drinks were flowing and the music was good, the dance floor was quite small and there was not a lot of space in general. But had a good night, would go there again.
Whisky Mist is located in the Hilton Hotel and is the ultimate if you are looking for an uber glam evening out! It is co-owned by Mahiki and so attracts the same sort of crowd - Prince Harry has been known to party here so if you are looking for an extra touch of class, this is the place!
The decor is wonderful and like no other I have seen in London. The tables accommodate far more people than the usual clubs which makes it perfect for a big group. The mirrored ceiling is cool and the DJ's play everything from R&B to Pop to Dance.
The club is slightly on the smaller side although there is a VIP section which the staff are extremely strict about guest lists so no chance of blagging your way in here! It is also expensive if you spend the whole night here but the atmosphere and venue definitely makes up for it if you don't need to buy too may drinks.
Definitely a place to get your ultimate glad-rags on!
*NEVER* had a bad night here!
Music is *always* beyond fabulous.
Great above-the-bar classy crowd.
Oh, and the door staff verges on *courteous* - how's that for a high-end club shocker? No wonder I didn't know how *in * it was the first time I came here... ha.
£15 for a whiskey sour? You must be having a giraffe!
The poor soul who offered to buy a round (for 3) nearly sh*t a brick when the total came to £45!
In fairness, they do have a HUGE selection of whiskeys and barstaff that really know what they're talking about - including back stories to secret ingredients!
I get the impression the main selling point of this place is its perceived 'exclusivity' (i.e. rip off) meaning that the royals can go there without the rest of us 'riff-raff' turning up. Whatever, if that's your sort of thing, I'd rather go somewhere with normal people and normal drink prices (good music wouldn't go amiss as well!)
I am not sure what people are talking about when they call this place "posh" or with a decor that is amazing....we had a large private group and while we had fun and definitely made the most of it I would have had no idea that this was a hot club where royals party if I hadn't been told. Music was OK, but I have been to much better clubs elsewhere.
Full disclosure: For the most part, I loathe clubs, their politics and often times the type of people that frequent them. I will however, on special occasion break down and revel with the best of 'em...
After having crashed a former co-worker's holiday party, a group of us decided to try our luck at Whiskey Mist. I'd been informed beforehand by my friend that his name was on the list. Having previously tried my hand with club politics in Los Angeles and New York, I knew this didn't really mean much unless you had some of the fairer sex accompanying yourselves. Fortunately we did have a few, more beautiful, friends with us, and we didn't have an issue getting in. Surprisingly it was packed inside, especially for a random Wednesday night. I'm a bit more used to enormous lines outside and relatively few people inside, so this was a somewhat refreshing tactic, although it might not necessarily make for the most refreshing experience. But I have to give Whiskey Mist some credit as the experience was as anticipated: the coat check was not complimentary, the drinks were pricey, the music was decent and the crowd was quite intoxicated, and quite young from the dimly-lit-and-pulsating-strobe-light looks of it. My friend did point out some famous socce... I mean "football" player that walked past and up some stairs, to a private area no doubt. Apologies, but I don't follow the sport enough to have recognized him.
However, with all my ranting, I really did have a good time. But with the company I had, I probably could have had just as much fun anywhere else. Overall though, if you're looking for a club experience, then Whiskey Mist should definitely live up to your expectations.
Where to begin. Music not particularly inspiring, gimmicky champagne with sparklers. Trying too hard. In a word, meh.
I must have gone on an off night. I saw plastic-drag-queen-looking women dancing on tables in the VIP with fat bespoke suit wearing old geezers ogling them. The dance floor was packed and the music was good though. The place was hyped up by two in our group before I got there so when I saw how tiny it was, and the so called classy crowd, I was left with a "it this it?" feeling. I stayed long enough to finish half of my beer. I'd go back only coz I'm a "it's not where you're at but who you're with" type of guy and I'm sure I'll be dragged in there again.
Nice bar, brill selection of drinks especially wines, cocktail and whiskeys. Vip room decor is alluring and sexy like most of the atmosphere.
Nice bar, and parties, I've been there for the Vip room st tropez party and it was very nice, and fantastic. The best nights in this club are on tuesday
Watering hole for some of the lesser spotted Eurotrash - tiny dance area - way too self aware to ever be truly cool.
Posh crowd, relaxed atmosphere, good music.
My friends and I got to stay in the VIP area and got free drinks (Greygoose + mixers) throughout the night! Definitely attracts a well-off crowd. Make sure you dress nicely, and no ties for guys (I don't know why).
I recently moved to London from NYC and was sure the night life here would not live up to the big apple until I was introduced to Whisky Mist by a friend. I absolutely love this club, it is exactly what I am looking for when I go out. Beautiful decor, fun vibes, great crowd, and quality drinks. The tables are spacious and the music is always fantastic! Seriously never had a bad experience here, I always leave wanting more! Definitely make a reservation before you go, as it is quite exclusive and not so easy to get in. Dress your best and be prepared to have an amazing time! xx
went to the ever famous Whisky Mist Sunday this past weekend. going at the early hour of 10:30-11:00pm, there was absolutely no queue and we got in with no trouble at all, the normal £20 cover. the venue is small but nice. nothing stands out per se, just the trendy, dark and classy vibe. the crowd was fairly young, the girls seemed to be more 20's than 30's and dressed in standard mayfair small/sequiny/black dresses. there's a bit more of a dance area than maddox (which is more like dancing in little aisles between the tables) but it's by no means large.. like, you really don't have to worry about losing sight of your friend here. the music.. only okay! i prefer top40s but it was mostly house which i get bored of pretty easily. overall, had a decent night here, and would possibly go back if i really need to go clubbing (is that a thing?) on a Sunday evening.
One of the classiest clubs that I have been to in the world. Fantastic crowd. Great service whether we have a table or just chilling out. Became mates with a couple of the bouncers, which is a first at any venue, anywhere. Good on Friday's post after-work drinks from midnight, but best night is Sunday.
