Stephen Fry is Paramount
60s retro and futurism in one roof top bar
Location: Tottenham Court Road, NW1
Description: Renowned English interior designer Tom Dixon is behind 'Paramount', one of London's hottest venues located on top of city landmark Centre Point tower.
The bar's aesthetic is a blend 60s retro and futurism, articulated through the use of hard-edged materials like concrete and stone to create a kind of space-ship meets super-club. The star of course, is the spectacular view, which is only enhanced by Dixon's clean, modern interior.
Anyone hoping to pay a visit to Paramount better get to work on their 'applications' for membership, a process which, rather frightfully, mirrors a job application.
Aspiring members must be 'assessed' by a panel including English actor Stephen Fry.
