LIFE'S A BEACH: THE LAUNCH OF 
MYKI SAND BAR AT ARCHER STREET, SOHO

"The place to be in summer is London, second only to being anywhere but London." So says the fashionably jaded Londoner who "ohmahgad, I just can't" with yet another pep talk that includes that well-loved but hackneyed Samuel Johnson quote because - enthusiasm is for tourists and kids, but cynicism is for champions don'cha know? Thank goodness then, that I consider myself a serial underachiever in the area of apathetic affectation: because despite spouting gems like "Paris is sooo played out. Cheers, American Francophiles and your la vie en rose-tinted glasses..." I actually do enjoy getting excited about new happenings in this fair city.

Have Uber, will travel (incidentally, when I first started blogging my carriage was Addison Lee and black cabs - has it been that long?) - so the prospect of 'Europe's glamourous beach clubs' being only a £15 ride from Shoreditch to Soho was too curious to pass up.

Tuesday evening saw the launch of Myki Sand Bar in beloved Soho hot spot Archer Street. For Summer 2016, this pop up in the basement of this polo-themed bar recreates Mediterranean chic with Greek islands-inspired white and blue interiors, tropical palms, and of course sand - capturing the primitive luxury of the European beach club scene.

Life's a beach, and so is Soho it seems...

Even more so than the live performance of summer tunes by the fabulous Archer Street team, the bespoke cocktail menu curated by Cîroc starring the exclusive new Cîroc Pink Grapefruit, the infectiously enthusiastic bartenders who work the tumblers with all the agility and flair of that guy you always see tearing up the dance floor, the beautiful people, the island-chic decor, and the sheer novelty factor of treading gingerly across sand to get to our Santorini-inspired coves - the highlights of my evening were a much-needed catchup with blogger friends Honey and Suze plus making new acquaintances. Although said 'how do you dos' may have been mostly one-sided, namely me filling the girls in on the wild sexcapades of newly-single and ready to mingle-me. I imagine that sort of 'live as though you'll die tomorrow' hedonism is the very sort of young and wild spirit encouraged at Myki Sand Bar. When in Europe, eh?
