Idris Elba, Never-Ending Cocktails And Live Music: Tanqueray's Dreamy Gin Palace

Idris Elba in the sharpest suit, live piano, a mixologist who was in Skyfall (actual Skyfall!) and cocktails on tap - is there anywhere more dreamy than the Tanqueray Gin Palace?

Last night at the Covent Garden pop-up opening party, brand ambassador Idris got proceedings off to a heady beginning by insisting everyone did a shot before music started and Tanqueray punch-drinking didn't stop.

Jade Parfitt caught up with Olivia Inge, while Olivia Grant chatted with boyfriend Diego Bivero-Volpe and Jasmine Guinness giggled with Camilla Rutherford.

Hugo Taylor was clean shaven and completely unaware his ex Millie Mackintosh had just got engaged to Professor Green ("I hadn't heard that, amazing that they are engaged!") and Rosario Dawson breezed in to catch up with pal Idris who, she said, "always asks about my mum".

After much cocktail knocking-back and a few more "lightening" shots (that's old fashioned for a gin shot, FYI), everyone was having such a good time that Olivia Inge got behind the piano to give everyone a song. Tanqueray Gin Palace - dreamiest. Bar. EVER.
