La Fée at the Café Royal
George Rowley and Mariona Gonzalez
Last Wednesday evening the Café Royal hosted a VIP opening in the fabulous Pompadour suite, (a gilded room of chandeliers and mirrors linked to a pillared terrace overlooking Regent Street). A famous haunt of Oscar Wilde and Absinthe, now being frequented by the likes of Stephen Fry, Alexander Armstrong and philosopher Alain de Botton. Drinks being served were predominantly classic and modern La Fée cocktails and Taittinger champagne.
