I am constantly in a state of stress at the moment. Not because of work or personal circumstances but because of the cray cray weather recently which results in simultaneously packing both sunglasses and umbrellas for every excursion, let alone the options surrounding outer wear. However the girls at River Island must have been twerking hard doing the sun dance because the weather was proper bo for the River Island x Pacha closing party at Madison.
I can see why River Island and Pacha would want to hold their Ibiza inspired party here. The selling point for those not familiar is the rooftop terrace overlooking a rather badass view of St Paul's cathedral which looks amazing on most normal days, let alone the glorious orange saturated sunset we saw that evening. #nofilter.
I've only been to Madison once for dinner so it was full of tables but the decks were cleared inside for people to hang out with sofas on the edges to enjoy that rather marvellous sky line view.
The complimentary cocktails were a mixture of fruity based flavours, from cherry (ode to pacha) to strawberry to passionfruit, all perfect for the great weather and vibe.
Madison is a gorgeous venue with fantastic service and delicious cocktails. It's lovely outside and inside. It's definitely a top place for cocktails (waaaaah awful pun) and I'd like to go again with friends...and if you really want to appreciate some stunning views of London, make sure you twerk the sun dance before you plan to head there because it is indescribably beautiful when the sun is out.
