We went down to the opening of the Cointreau Privé club on Piccadilly last night to soak up some glamour (and cocktails) and watch Dita Von Teese work her magic. After hours of CointreauTeese and Cointreaupolitan cocktails, the crowd was suitably excited to see the lady herself, who took to the stage in a sparkling little number with red fans a’waving, before having a delicate splash around in her infamous life-sized cocktail glass. The decadent speakeasy is popping up for three weeks only (November 30-December 17) mixing many an orange-liqueur based cocktail and featuring nightly performances by cabaret and burlesque starlets. Be warned, the drinks are pretty damn strong – we are feeling a tad too cointreauversial today…Sonya Barber
