Retro rooms: a place to party


Retro rooms! We’re just loving that not only can we make do and mend with retro fabrics and crafts, but we can also relax and chill out with a vintage vibe too. We’ve just come across two cool vintage-inspired party venues which have made it onto our to do lists. Everyone back to theirs…

First up is a very British afternoon tea with a rock and roll twist, at Leicester Square’s W Hotel. The cakes for afternoon tea are presented on vintage vinyl cake stands (we heart!) and inspired by legends in rock royalty who have passed through the doors of the hotel over the decades. How about retro Battenburg, reinvented with a rock twist as Purple Haze? Get into the groove. If you’re in London or planning a trip to the big smoke, you can reserve a place for Rock Tea at The W Hotel. Perfect for a party or special get together with friends.

And what about this cool place? All the best parties end up in the kitchen anyway, and this kitsch kitchen is just like your granny’s place. Cool.

The Big Chill Bar, Bristol

A room to rent out for parties, this authentic 70s fitted kitchen / diner is yours to hire. Vintage 45s are included. This tucked away secret room is at The Big Chill Bar in Bristol, but we think the idea should catch on elsewhere… Visit the Big Chill Bar to find out how to book.
