Where to go and what to do to celebrate Haloween 2018 on Sloane Street…

Alessandro Ristori & The Portofinos

To celebrate Halloween, Sumosan Twiga London in flying in cult Italian singer and showman Alessandro Ristori & The Portofinos from his usual haunt, Le Bar Americain in Monte Carlo, where he has long been serenading the jet set, film stars and musicians at the iconic Hôtel de Paris.

Ristori, a favourite of Sumosan Twiga London’s co-founder Flavio Briatore, will take to the stage in the second-floor restaurant and cocktail bar of the glamorous three-floor venue on Sloane Street, on both the 29th and 30th October, transporting diners to La Dolce Vita with his quintessentially Italian show style.

For dinner, expect Venetian-inspired Italian classics from Monte Carlo’s famed Twiga restaurant, as well as an innovative Japanese menu, synonymous with the Sumosan brand in London, Moscow and Dubai at the hands of Executive Chef Claudio Cardoso. Ristori will play a set inspired by cult movie “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” together with Italian music of the sixties and seventies, American’s finest crooners of the fifties and a dash of British Rock Pop.

The restaurant will be open for dinner from 6.30 pm to 2.00 am, and the downstairs nightclub will be open on the night of the 30th October for those who fancy a little “Monster Mash” on the dance floor.

Chelsea residents and visitors should head to the Artisan du Chocolat boutique for a Halloween party featuring the chocolatier’s terrifically spooky exclusive Halloween collection. There’s a chocolate skull decorated with rose vines, a gold ceramic skull filled with little chocolate balls, a pumpkin and dedicated seasonally flavours. Definitely more treat than trick.
