Jazz and gin

Matthew Steeples reports on the latest initiative from The Rib Room

 

Last week my friends and I enjoyed an evening of live music at The Rib Room at Knightsbridge’s Jumeirah Carlton Tower.

Each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9.30pm various artists perform in the buzzy bar of this fine establishment and amongst them is the jazz singer Emma Topolski.

 

Topolski is the daughter of the actress Susan Gilmore and her rowing commentator husband Daniel Topolski. A collection of the works of her grandfather, Feliks Topolski RA (1907 – 1989), a Polish born British expressionist painter best known for a 600ft mural depicting events and people of the 20th century, hangs in The Rib Room.

 

The Rib Room is well known for their excellent burgers and we began the evening with one of these and concluded with some of their excellent gin cocktails. Here, indeed, is an ideal way to lift your spirits in the company of friends on a rainy winter’s day.
