TURNING 26 @ THE ROOF GARDENS, KENSINGTON

I'm not usually one for a big Birthday night out - most of the time I much prefer my home comforts and a takeaway. However I've had, without a doubt, the best few months of my life this year and wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate that with all of my favourite people in one place.

And so, for my 26th birthday, I rallied us all together for a special night at The Roof Gardens in Kensington, London.

And yes, it's as downright posh as it sounds.

Based on High Street, Kensington the club, bar and restaurant boast stunning views of London from 6 stories high. Dress to impress is their motto and so my friends and I got suited and booted in preparation for what promised to be quite the epic birthday night. In all fairness, I was totally crapping myself - I mean, I'll pop out for a few drinks every now and then but nothing quite as incredibly beautiful and classy as this.

On entry we shuffled ourselves in to a lift which took us up to the top floor where music was blaring.
It felt far more intense than a usual DJ set and we weren't wrong - turning the corner a live drummer sat next to the DJ playing along to the set...Guys, it was ridiculously good.

We were seated in our VIP area and soon enough the drinks were flowing, quite literally, out of watering cans. The club itself was breath-taking – I’ve never experienced anything quite like it. I found myself taking a step back away from my friends, to appreciate that we were all here, in this incredible club, drinking out of bloody WATERING CANS with actual FLAMINGOS outside - I mean COME ON.

WHAT I WORE: Dress: Missguided. Shoes: Topshop. Bag: Topshop. Lipstick: Estee Lauder
Inside the club were different areas and dance floors as well as a huge amount of outdoor space with champagne bars, seating areas and a casual massive BBQ, you know, in case you got a bit peckish from dancing along to the epic live music.

They've just got it so right. 

Partying isn't really my scene and I had visions that this place could be pretty pretentious and uppity, but I couldn't have been more wrong. There was such a happy atmosphere, everyone did their own thing and the VIP areas meant you could spend all your time with the people you'd chosen to come out with. The dance floor was a hot, sweaty, happy mess and the staff couldn't have been more attentive.
The music was epic, albeit I couldn't tell you exactly what was played, there were definitely a few chart toppers and golden oldies thrown in to the mix.

The club also put on regular day-sessions where the gardens are open to view in all their glory, bringing the club from the inside, out! It's quite the celebrity hotspot, too. So you can expect to see a few famous faces if you end up paying it a visit.

Basically, if you're looking for a seriously special night out, then this is 100% the place to be.

I had the best time - It was a really special treat to celebrate my birthday in such a glamorous way and I think the pictures go to show what an amazing time we had :-)

I absolutely adore Roof Gardens, it's my go-to club, I just love everything about it! I haven't been for a few weeks now so I'm going back next Friday with a big group of friends and am SO excited! I had my birthday there this year and they messed it all up massively, but they were super nice and tried to make up for it with a 'second' birthday night for a few of us.
