That will be £28 please. ka-ching

Hilarious!  £28 for a glass of non-vintage champagne?  I can’t imagine how long the newly opened Red Room will last or the clientele they are expecting to attract.  Silly might be the only prerequisite for membership of this deeply un-sexy space.  I suppose the logical explanation is that the club is attached to Les Ambassadeurs Club and they are expecting to claw back the winnings of high rollers in their casino.

I can’t think of anywhere else in the world where the price of a glass of champagne is so ridiculously high.  Oh, apart from the Billionaire Club in Sardinia where I was knocked off my Choos by the price of a cocktail at €50.  Admittedly, it was an incredibly delicious, sublimely good berry Caipirinha…

And as with all things, its hard to shake a bad first impression.  We vote with our feet and my 39’s won’t be back.  Not unless they invite me in as Style Director and give me an open cheque book.  It could be super cool, sexy, sassy… but sadly misses the mark in too many ways to count.  Apart from counting to 28 that is.
