The quintisentially British luxury of the Connaught hotel has been given a classic update in the form of it’s sensational new bar, designed by internationally renowned designer, David Collins. Collins, famous for his work at The Blue Bar and The Landau, has gracefully updated what was once the American Bar as part of the Connaught’s recent £70 million refurbishment.

Everybody is going crazy about Mumbai’s Blue Frog, opened earlier this year. It’s a 1,000-square-meter complex that includes a club, restaurant, lounge, sound stage, recording studio and sound lab, all encased within the massive walls of an old warehouse in Mumbai’s mill district. The Blue Frog Club interior may remind you of those delirious nights at the end-of-summer Exhibition with its midway games, roller coasters and dizzy-making rides. Or you may suddenly start channeling Queen Amidala, addressing the StarWarsian Senate from her floating pod. Luckily, Blue Frog does its dizzying job in a way that is totally stylish – not a tacky thing or overdone costume in sight. And everyone’s table is definitely on level ground, although it does not appear so first.

Probably the only club in Moscow that paid so much attention not only to the interior but also to the design of the facade. At night, the walls are living their lives and teach the audience a variety of visual surprises. Right over your head acrobats are spinning, so the party begins before the entrance to the club. The show doesn’t stop for a moment.It’s the place to be in Moscow!

Numero bar was built on a very narrow and long strip of land in the Jardins area, in São Paulo.A walkway runs from the street through a hallway/tunnel fully covered in mirrors, leading to the main hall.At the Numero bar entrance, the ceiling is extremely low and the view of the hall – cascaded – is unimpeded. Progressing towards the back, the height gradually increases: descending levels feature comfortable lounging areas, under a ceiling that extends on a continually rising surface.
The low and indirect lighting throughout Numero bar lends the ambience a pleasant and cozy atmosphere, perfect for a relaxing drink at the end of the day, accompanied by friends and to the sound of good music.A room reserved for private functions takes up the lower floor of Numero bar and, contrary to the main hall, features a low ceiling all along, with couches placed in the central axis of the room, built-in overhead lighting throughout, and walls completely covered by antique posters or poster fragments.

Red lights dim, music throbs and the lithesome black torso of Brian Scott Bagley, dressed in a white-fringed miniskirt and outrageously high heels, shimmies across the stage. It’s cabaret time at Le Renard.The nightclub (12 rue du Renard; 33-1-4271-8627; is a reinvention, the product of the efforts of Rasmus Michau, a celebrity Paris night-life staple, who renovated an intimate fin-de-siècle burlesque theater and reopened it as Le Renard in November. The décor is a mish-mash of gothic, Art Deco and contemporary styles, with plenty of glitz thrown in. You can sip a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar, stay on for dinner, and next thing you know, around midnight, you may find the irrepressible Mr. Scott Bagley, the resident artistic director, impresario and star attraction, dancing around your plate.“We produce simple, good-quality, seasonal, traditional French food,” Mr. Michau said, “sole meunière tartare, foie-gras poelle, homemade French fries, côte de boeuf — always with a twist.” Expect an average evening to cost about 70 euros (about $90) per person.But be warned: this is not the place for an intimate tête-à-tête.“I am trying to create a crazy energy,” said Mr. Scott Bagley, whose style could be described as a cross between debonair and deliciously hammy, in a pause between wardrobe changes. “It’s Josephine Baker meets the Cotton Club, with a dash of Folies Bergère, 1980s jazz and dancing thrown in.”Le Renard is open Tuesday to Saturday, 8:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.

If you’re looking for Tzigan, X doesn’t mark the spot, a feather does. Down the stairs at 55 Gansevoort you’ll find the lowest level of Villa Pacri’s dining and nightlife complex. Named after a community of Eastern European gypsies and inspired by the Cartier Trinity ring, Tzigan is a three room lounge with each room covered in gold, sliver or bronze.Designed by French architect Cyril Duran-Behar and with a capacity of 150, the fireplace in the copper area and the marble bar add to the warmth and intimacy of the venue.The coolest thing about Tzigan is that it offers its most VIP clients the opportunity to partake in a carafe program. If you are lucky enough to be selected, you may rent a shelved box to keep your favorite luxury spirits (Cognacs, Scotch and other rare brandies) stored onsite in crystal carafes made by Baccarat, Lalique or Cristallerie Royale de Champagne.Pascal Ramette, Stephan Courseau, Maxime Paul-Mercier, Remi Laba and Aymeric Clemente have created a unique venue in the Meatpacking District and I am very interested to see what mark they make on the nightlife industry.

Named Bar 228 after the hotel’s address on 228 rue de Rivoli, this place has become “the rendez-vous” of Parisians. The cosy atmosphere of Bar 228 has the warmth of British clubs, perhaps due to the many british guests that visited hotel Le Meurice in its early years. Totally reinterpreted by Philippe Starck in December 2007, the warm and hushed decor remains faithful to its origins with wooden bar stools and leather chairs. The atmosphere is subtly warmed by the crackling glow of tobacco shades and highlighted by the sparkle of rare crystal decanters, to be filled at leisure. An exceptional moment to share…Like the festive night scene at Château de Fontainebleau portrayed in the three restored Lavalley paintings hanging on its walls, the Bar 228 offers guests an ideal respite, complete decadent cocktails and lavish décor. The evening sky gives the bar a cozy-but-rich feeling. This setting combined with a selection of over 50 whiskies and malts will keep guests warm throughout the year.300 drink references are available at Bar 228, among them 17 exclusive creations, such as the Cocktail Starcky or The 228.Perfect for a quick lunch, while still elegantly presented. Parisians say it serves the best club sandwiches in Paris! Or try the “Croque Meurice”, which is the “deluxe” version of the traditional croque-monsieur. Bon appétit…Every evening, enjoy two jazz musicians who thrill the soul of Le Meurice, from 7 p.m. to midnight.The pianist is accompagnied by a bass guitarist, a guitarist or a drummer.Open everyday from noon to 2 a.m.

“For the design of Delicatessen, nemaworkshop explored the concept of urban identity, namely the vibrant SoHo neighborhood and more specifically the NY newsstand. Typically overlooked because of its ubiquity, the newsstand serves as an atypical yet appropriate model. They are open, in-and-out thoroughfares which foster a unique breed of social energy. In order to capture this energy, the main dining space opens up to the bustling street corner with large retractable steel-and-glass garage doors. Traditional boundaries between street and restaurant evaporate, allowing the main dining space to be loosely defined and astonishingly inviting. Underneath the bar stands a collection of clear soda pop bottles while behind the bar the wall is clad in leather subway tiles.”

Therefore appears a bar, restaurant, large lounge area with comfortable couches and all extra activities.The project is totally detached from convention of sport centers that we know. Nearly fanatical consistency of colors makes My Squash a modern, light in the perception and surprising place. The undeniable advantages of the interior are characteristic lighting made by Puff-Buff Studio as well as white resin floors that gives it a unique atmosphere. Kreacja Przestrzeni Studio designs private and commercial spaces with natural aesthetic sensitivity and desire to ensure that the space around us is pleasant, modern, fresh and surprising – and such is My Squash club.

A multilevel, multifunctional Philippe Starck–designed fun house—it’s really two restaurants, a basement dance club, and a throbbing scene around the black etched-glass bar. If you’ve seen any of the latest Starck oeuvre, you know what to expect: walls scrawled with apocalyptic graffiti, a design museum’s worth of mix ’n’ match chairs, cryptic unisex bathrooms, and a general sense of dislocation produced by one too many cultural references. More successful than the upstairs dining room is the casual neo-Gothic Petit café. Here, the jeunesse dorée share bowls of mussels in skillfully spiced Thai coconut curry; one of the creamiest pumpkin risottos this side of Mantua; and hamburguesas featuring a succulent chicken patty in a saffrony almond sauce—the chef’s sly take on a folksy Castilian chicken dish called gallina en pepitoria.
Clearly, with Gilbert Yeung at the helm, this isn’t your average billiards club. Nor is it your standard club. A cross between a lounge-billiards hall with the capabilities of turning into a full fledged club, Tazmania Ballroom is just another glam spot to be seen and be seen.

Soho House Berlin is a private membersâ€™ club with 40 bedrooms. Located in Berlin Mitte, the late-Bauhaus structure is a listed building with a distinct symmetrical faÃ§ade and notable history.Originally opened in 1928 as a department store, the property was seized by the wartime government before being occupied by the post-war, Communist regime until 1956. It was then used to house the Communist Party archives and the Central Committeeâ€™s Historical Institution. After German reunification the building was legally returned to the descendents of its original owners, but has remained derelict until now.The club is Soho House Groupâ€™s largest to date and will also feature a Cecconiâ€™s restaurant at ground level, opening in Autumn 2010.

Greenhouse – John B, the man behind West Chelsea staples Home and Guest House, went green for his third venture, Greenhouse. The spot has club-goers sitting on couches made from recyclable material all under LED lighting. Add to that toilets that flush efficiently, waterless urinals, table service that comes with fresh juices and offers 360 Vodka in eusable bottle, and you got yourself an LEED-approved nightclub experience. Of course the eco-feel continues in the dÃ©cor, which features walls made of sustainable bamboo and covered in real leaves, moss, and green circles, along with glass beads hung from the ceiling to evoke, we assume, raindrops (Rainforest CafÃ©, anyone?). Given its relatively small space the club promotes some skin-to-skin action, and the music will satisfy those with a penchant for the expected mix of Top 40, house, and hip-hop.
