Blue Marlin at Novikov Mayfair

Ibiza comes to London

Like me are you suffering from the Winter blues? Escape rainy dull London for bit and grab a glimpse of summer at Blue Marlin Ibiza at Novikov, Mayfair – a socialite and foodie dream.

On Saturday night we visited Novikov for their first Blue Marlin Ibiza Pop YOU Up of 2016. I haven’t been to Ibiza (yet!) to this was a great taster and it left me yearning to book a holiday there.

We began the evening in style with a glass of Moet each as we got to ready to experience Ibiza in the heart of Mayfair. From 6pm we were entertained by Symone JBS who has an absolutely stunning voice. Symone JBS has collaborated with the likes of Kerri Chandler, Richy Ahmed and Two Rhodes.

We then enjoyed a few vodkas as special guest DJ Shaun Reeves got behind the decks. DJ Shaun Reeves was joined by glamorous DJ duo and deep tech house progressive producers So:Serious, the Blue Marlin residents whose high energy performance belies their name. (Timings: Exhibition: 7pm; Symone JBS: 8pm; DJs: 9pm; Finish: 3am.)

The musical line-up was paired with an exhibition of work (graffiti, neon art, stencil and photography) by contemporary artist Benjamin Joseph, a major influencer on the urban art scene. Joseph’s one-off pieces for each event will be on sale, with a contribution going to charity.

During the evening we were also able to enjoy a taste of both restaurants located at Novikov. We enjoyed Asian and Italian treats includng Dim Sum; Sushi and amazing Wagyu Tacos from the Novikov Asian menu and Mozzarella along with a delicious salami selection from the Novikov Italian menu. These delectable dishes were followed by a wonderful dessert selection.

Pfftt forget that New Year diet.

Novikov is the perfect venue for a stylish night out. On arrival it all feels very exclusive yet once we gave us names, received our wristbands and took to our seats, we indulged in the chilled out Ibiza vibe. I felt way too comfortable that I didn’t even leave my seat to dance and burn off all that food…

The next event is on 6 February at Novikov, you can see more here. If you look around, you may spot a few famous faces like we did.
