Opium was a beautiful and an undeniable nightclub. Descending the dim steps from Dean Street into a faint haze of incense, one's first impression is of something very special.
Exotic and opulent in equal measure, the main room is divided up by intricate wooden screens, with a bar, a distinct area for eating and room for dancing towards the back. The secret, though, is in the way the whole space works together rather than feeling like separate parts.
