And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Summer in the City - The Lovin' Spoonful

The Beatles. The Beach Boys. Jimi Hendrix. Eric Clapton. Other than all being musical legends, what else do these icons have in common? They've all performed at the rocking nightclub, Scotch of St James. Today the Scotch of St James is a legendary party venue, known for its stylish clientele and as one of the most exciting spaces for summer parties in London.

Restored in 2014, it's become popular for music, fashion and arts events of all kinds. Part of the attraction of the venue is the unrivalled location: it's in the heart of Mayfair but enclosed in its own pretty enclave, Mason's Yard, making for an entirely exclusive feel.

Inside, the atmosphere is prestigious and elegant with classic cocktails served at the impressive bar, but still with the historic charm to foster the creative events taking place. In February, Scotch of St James was home to a successful London Fashion Week event for Maybelline New York, featuring a truly VIP guest list, from Victoria's Secret models to musicians.

That's not the only event that would be suited to the Scotch's historic grounds. It's also a popular choice for Christmas parties, cocktail-and-canapé receptions, pop-ups and various other functions – not to mention it's a perfect venue for what it was originally used for: music. Live gigs, DJ sets and ticketed performance events of all kinds will find a natural home right here, for obvious reasons.
