Ciroc Vodka at London Riviera

This month, Cîroc at London Riviera brought a taste of Miami beachside and the chic French Riviera to the Southbank by Tower Bridge. The yellow carpet was rolled out, and a little slice of entropic-escapism was fashioned. The space had the trappings of being on a castaway island (minus the ordeal of surviving a plane crash) reminiscent of a boutique festival right at the epicentre of the city, becoming the must-see luxury hang-out to enjoy breath-taking sunset views of the Thames.

There are few other places that offer this esoteric, extrasensory opportunity to experience the sibylline. Decked out with palm trees, luxurious day-beds, giant pineapples and pink flamingos (plastic ones), Cîroc at London Riviera is a fabulously frivolous after-work rendezvous, a classy first date location, or just a place to hide from the wife.

Guests enjoyed live entertainment from Bluey Robinson, DJ sets from Ooh La La & Laura Whitmore as well as being treated to a selection of vibrant beach-style Cîroc Pineapple Vodka cocktails including Cîroc Summer Punch, Pina Colada, Cîroc Pineapple & Sage Fizz and Cîroc Pineapple & Ginger Cooler. A sizzling seasonal menu inspired by the delectably fresh flavours of Eastern Mediterranean street food was served by celebrity chef John Quilter and executive chef Tom Kime (CERU Restaurant). I spent the majority of the night camped by the CERU food tent scavenging through the canapés like a raccoon in a dumpster.

The drinks were wonderfully presented in hollowed out pineapples and were enjoyed by VIP guests in attendance such as Paloma Faith, Oliver Cheshire, Conor Maynard and more. CÎROC Ultra-Premium Vodka, a unique signature, delivering a distinctive flavour with an exceptionally fresh, citrus taste. Fresh off the back of sponsoring the exclusive boutique Drifters festival on the mystical Island of Osea, the brand Ciroc is now becoming synonymous with luxury whilst complimenting a lifestyle that reflects sophistication and responsible drinking.
