Bonbonniere London Celebrates First Anniversary In Style with 50 Cent

Bonbonniere London Celebrates First Anniversary In Style with 50 Cent

Disco Inferno as 50 Cent hosts luxury Mayfair nightclub Bonbonniere’s 1st-year anniversary celebrations. Henry McIntosh was there to enjoy it. Oxford Street is no stranger to models, but generally those models are confined to posters within shop windows. Last week, hundreds of models descended on Oxford Street’s tributary Orchard Street. Not for a strike of the model’s union, but the first anniversary of luxury Mayfair nightspot Bonbonniere. The club, which is located opposite Selfridges, organised for the horde of models to take position and cause a roadblock across Orchard Street right around to the back of the famous department store. Causing quite a stir, the model stunt added a glamorous touch prior to the main event; a sold-out evening at Bonbonniere hosted by 50 Cent. The Candy Shop rapper was an apt choice for a club whose name roughly translates as ‘candy jar’ and revellers enjoyed partying with the rap royalty as champagne sparklers lit the Fabergé Egg-inspired interior of the club. The club’s owner, Joe Fournier, is also renowned for his antics at the Mykonnos Bonbonniere where he has hosted an array of A-list clientele from Paris Hilton and Nicole Scherzinger to Jamie Foxx and the Victoria’s Secret models. Bonbonniere is no stranger to such celebrity endorsements and appearances, and it’s fast becoming affiliated with a range of personalities in its three global venues. With another club to his name in New York, Fournier labels himself a ‘nightclub entrepreneur.’ He’s a rather good one too, having already drawn comparisons with Virgin magnate, Richard Branson. Unsurprisingly, London’s own incarnation of the club has quickly become a favoured nightspot for the capital’s rich and famous akin to its siblings. Idris Elba, Jourdan Dunn and Snoop Dogg, are but a few notable names who have previously attended. Appearances from A-Listers looks likely to be a trend that’s set to continue, especially after Bonbonniere won “Best New Nightclub” at the 2015 London Club and Bar awards. With a growing repute within the capital, Bonbonniere is well worth a visit. Bonbonniere London – Where and How? Bonbonniere London is located at 23 Orchard St, London W1H 6HL.

After big name acts like U2 and Foo Fighters pulled concert dates in the wake of the Paris attacks, Prince has followed suit.

The iconic singer canceled the remainder of his Prince Spotlight: Piano & A Microphone tour, which included 16 cities in Europe at the end of the month.

He broke the news on his timeline, tweeting a link to his French production company that prompted the message, “Due to the tragic events in Paris, the tour promoter has decided to postpone the upcoming European tour until further notice.”

The cancellations come after the horrific shootings that took place at the concert venue Le Bataclan in Paris on Friday night (Nov. 13) during an Eagles of Death Metal show. Over 100 lives were reportedly taken in the tragedy.

Liberally interspersing their excited tweets with hashtags like #hiphop #oldskool, Chip Shop Brixton are preparing to open up on the corner of Coldharbour Lane and Atlantic Road in Brixton.

The building – once home to the Black Cultural Archives and more recently Shaza Fried Chicken – has been given an impressive makeover by UK graffiti artist @Titlegraffiti, with several black cultural icons adorning theshutters and walls.

[Carlton Warren belts out The Message, Brixton, May 2004]

Run by the people from the Brixton Village Grill, we have to say that we’re not entirely sure how their message of “Old Skool Hip-Hop.. Positive Vibez Only” fits in with the concept of a chip shop, but we’ll certainly look forward to checking it out.

They’ve posted up some of their menu options on Twitter, and these include a ’10oz sirloin and chargrilled lobster’, ‘chargrilled tuna finished with an olive, caper and tomato relish’ and a ‘800g grilled red snapper, hand cut chips, rice, mixed salad, chilli lemon butter and dill sauce.’

That all sounds rather nice but does seem a world away (and most likely more expensive) than our favourite traditional chippie, the magnificent Jimmy’s Plaice some 300 metres down Coldharbour Lane.

Despite the business not being open yet, it has somehow managed to pick up 8 five star reviews on their Facebook which is quite an achievement.

UK ANTI GOVERNMENT RIOTS – Riots Erupt in London Over Re-Election of David Cameron

UK ANTI GOVERNMENT RIOTS – Riots Erupt in London Over Re-Election of David Cameron

maxresdefault (3)

Protests have erupted in central London against the re-election of Britain’s Conservative prime minister David Cameron, with demonstrators throwing bottles, cans and smoke bombs at riot police.

Scuffles broke out when the demonstrators, blaring hooters, banging pots and chanting obscenities, confronted lines of police outside the gate leading to the prime minister’s Downing Street residence. At one point a bicycle was hurled at police.

Police arrested five people, and four police officers and one member of police staff were injured policing this protest, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

This remarkable footage is 12 minutes long and gives a unique insight into what was actually happening on the streets of London today.
