Managing to combine Hollywood gangster chic with a 1940s sultriness, the Oscar Club lounge bar and restaurant oozes pure, but relaxed, glamour. A palette of cream and brown is lent a note of colour by table top red carnations. walls are adorned with framed black and whites of Oscar winners and UV-lit fish tanks and yet still manages somehow to look understated. The party vibe is chilled here, though when there isn’t live jazz going on, music courtesy of MTV Dance keeps the atmosphere upbeat. The private room is an homage to Pacino’s gangster flicks and, appropriately enough, their weekly Mafia game (see Play) is among the most popular in town. It’s like a generous measure of LA Confidential and The Godfather with a sprinkling of Fabulous Baker Boys and, while Michelle Pfeiffer may not be draped seductively across this white baby grand piano, it’s likely you may find her framed somewhere on the wall.
