This Kings Road nightclub run by Patrice Gouty, founding partner of Chinawhite, is popular with celebrities and young royals - it helps if your parents have a house nearby. At Raffles you could find yourself partying alongside Paris Hilton or Prince William both of whom no doubt appreciate the exclusivity - it's members only - and the strong cocktails. Raffles which gets its name from the 19th century colonial mogul Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles has existed since 1967 but came under Gouty's management in 2007. There's a small dance floor (and a 225-person capacity) and comfy sofas so you can relax or get up and dance, depending on how the night progresses. If you're lucky you may get to see one of the many celebrity clients - Paris Hilton, Rosamund Pike, Keira Knightley, Gemma Arterton, David Walliams and Jenson Button have all partied here - just remember to act like they don't exist.
