What with London being recognised worldwide as one of the most charismatic, most historically resonant and, dare one say it, most romantic cities on earth, it’s always a primary vacation choice for a Valentine’s Day getaway (especially for Premier Club scheme members, of course). Not least given the fact that there’s simply always so much going on in the UK capital worth checking out, whatever the month or time of year you might choose to visit.
In which case then, should you choose an excellent, comfortable and affordable accommodation – like, say, the Park Grand Paddington Court – for a night or two’s stay in the capital around the 14th February, what would be a fitting way to spend a night out on the tiles of London Town? Well, how about a trip to the nearby Camden for a tribute to one of the greatest female balladeers of all-time…?
‘A Night of Whitney’ sees a full live band descend on Camden’s Jazz Café for an evening of classic hits from the late sould diva’s back catalogue, all in the name of the celebrating the life and career of the remarkable talent.
Having already completed three previously sold-out shows, the show delivers a bravura take on the music of the world’s most awarded female act in history. And that’s far from all, of course, because from record-breaking chart-toppers like I Will Always Love You (from the soundtrack to the box-office blockbuster that was The Bodyguard) to tunes that helped to make her a white-hot, bright-young-thing household-name in the 1980s, like I Wanna Dance With Somebody, this show’s one not to be missed for delivering song after song; every one of them delivered in a bravura performance.
Since opening its doors back in 1990, the Jazz Café’s welcomed some of the most respected artists to entertain audiences in the capital, such as Amy Winehouse, D’Angelo, Roy Ayers, Bobby Womack and so many, many more. And now, following a fantastic refurbishment, the venue reopened in late May of last year; boasting not just a new look, but also a technical upgrade and a revamped food and drink menu, ensuring the place has been revitalised and, frankly, for every patron who steps through the front door, feels like an exciting, electric brand-new venue.
And yet, of course, located in the heart of Camden, the Jazz Café’s built up over the decades one of the most respected, strongest reputations in the entire capital for high-quality music nights-out and great cuisine – whether for Londoners themselves or those visiting, having made their stay’s base the likes of the Park Grand Lancaster Gate hotel. Its capacity of just 440 offers genuine intimacy as an entertainment venue, enduring it’s simply the ideal setting for a terrific evening’s enjoyment. Indeed, weekend club nights transform this place from a day-time dinner establishment into a hotbed of outstanding live music.
