The phrase “Jack of all trades” doesn’t seem to have a more appropriate definition at the moment than the man himself, Idris Elba.
The actor/director/producer/rapper/tune spinner and all around don is soon to add ‘bar owner’ to his rap sheet, with the Briton set to open a cocktail bar in London this month.
Contrary to what you might expect from Elba, the bar known as “The Parrot” will be housed in one of London’s premier establishments, the Waldorf Hilton Hotel, with a heavy-hitting cocktail list to match that’s sure to dazzle both aficionados and their wallets.
According to their Instagram, The Parrot has also partnered with British luxury automaker Aston Martin to offer chauffeur-driven transfers for their most discerning customers in a four-door Rapide.
The joint will host a five-piece live house band with rotating singers, and we can only assume Elba himself will grace the decks on the odd occasion as he’s done so previously at popular venues around the world.
Stay tuned to their social media for updates.
