On Friday night we welcomed younger members from clubs across London to our 1950s Havana Nights Inter-Club Ball.
Guests followed in the footsteps of some of the biggest names of the 50s such as Kennedy, Brando and Bardot, by strutting their stuff on the red carpet. Our Chevrolet Bel Air, which was one of the most popular cars in Cuba, was waiting for them to take a beautiful photo with. Some guests were even lucky enough to sit behind the wheel and get a feel for this classic car.
The younger members were then ushered into our Princess Alexandra Hall which had been transformed from a regular concert hall into a Cuban club retreat. With the barrel bar serving cocktails on one side, our secluded and enchanting seating area on the other and our live Cuban band it was easy to forget the club was in the heart of London, not Havana.
The three-course meal was a culinary delight with traditional dishes straight from the heart of this tropical island. At the end of the meal guests were interrupted with a tantalising display of salsa dancing, which they were then invited to join in with.
Dancing their way down the Gibbs staircase and back into the Cuban-inspired Princess Alexandra Hall, they continued their evening of cocktails and jiving late into the night. Check out some photos from the evening below and see the full album here.
