Get festive with with the best Christmas music
As Noddy Holder once screeched: it’s Christmas! You might have heard some Christmas songs enough times to make you want to perforate your eardrums with a candy cane, but many festive pop songs are great works of art. Here’s our countdown of the Top 50 Christmas songs, from ancient carols to the best Christmas Number Ones.
Playboy Club London
An exclusive club, casino and restaurant in Mayfair - from Hugh Hefner's iconic brand. Members can enjoy table games such as American roulette, three card poker, blackjack and punto banco in one very swanky setting, with Playboy Bunnies dealing the cards and serving the drinks. The dining room is a similarly swish affair. Its menu ranges from Mediterranean dips and Middle Eastern mezze to beef fillet carpaccio, oysters, caviar, wagyu steaks, Cotswold lamb cutlets and the 'Hef Burger' - a wagyu patty with truffle ketchup, skinny fries and a bespoke poker chip redeemable for a glass of champagne. Set menus are available, too. Non-members can visit Salvatore's Bar, a chic drinking spot from Salvatore Calabrese, one of the world's most famous bartenders. Expect a large collection of vintage Cognacs (some of which date back to the 18th century), classic cocktails, rare spirits and concoctions created by Salvatore himself. For those looking for a little aural titillation, Baroque offers live music and special events with the entertainment complemented by champagne towers, canapés, cocktails and gourmet food. This area is available for private hire, too.
