The pursuit of...London nightlife

Last Friday I went to Gilgamesh in London's Camden.  I haven't been 'clubbing' in a long time so it was nice to get out and about.

I wore a gorgeous sequinned dress from TopShop that was reduced in the sale from £68 to £30 (bargain!). It has a really lovely, soft, velvety texture and is completely covered in black sequins. It felt lovely to wear and it went brilliantly with my metallic silver shoes from Zara (see The pursuit of...Shoes, Sparkle and Festive Fun).

I have been looking for a pastel powder-blue coat for absolute ages!! and I found this beautiful one (below) in TK Maxx recently.  I have got so many compliments from complete strangers every time I have worn it and it was another brilliant bargain too.  It is from a company called Covent Garden which I have never heard of before and it is my new favourite coat!  It went fabulously with my outfit and gave it that wintery ice blue look perfect for the season.

It was my first time to Gilgamesh. I have been to Shaka Zulu before which is the club right next door to it. We were in the VIP Babylon Suite which is very decadent with wooden carvings and little table booths shrouded with red voile.
Escalators from the cobbled street entrance took us up to where the famous pan-Asian restaurant is located and we walked through this enchanting little area to the suite.
I had a great time dancing to old school R&B classics and even a little bit of Calypso at the end (I felt like I was at NottingHill Carnival!).

Resting my tired feet after dancing the night away!

Camden is such a great place in London for nightlife and for really getting that unique London vibe.
It has many great clubs to choose from including: Koko, Proud (I went to Proud Cabaret last year for dinner and a show and that was an interesting experience!), Jazz CafĂ© and Shaka Zulu.
Just beware of those pesky cobbled stones and heels ladies!!

Till next time,

Love, Ivy George x
