Soul Saturdays @ Tuatara

Russell Cowie has what can only be described as a natural gift for throwing parties and hosting events. He became so successful at it whilst studying at Durham University he set up his own events company. Now I don’t know about you but there were a lot of things I was doing at University in my free time and setting up a business was not one of them.
Sadly Russ has given it all up to knuckle down at law school but luckily for us he decided to celebrate the success of his first year and finishing his exams with a rooftop summer party at Tuatara, Kings Road.  The first time I saw Russ he was drumming the dance floor of Roof Gardens into a frenzy of excitement with his partner in crime, DJ Dan Browne (as posted here) and so we had very high hopes for this event.
The party, ‘Soul Sessions’, was due to run all afternoon with a variety of DJ’s performing different sets to suit all tastes. Up first was reggae and hip hop lover Dan Bean who pulled out some absolute classics including an epic mix of TLC, ‘scrubs’. He was followed by our personal favourite Dan Browne who hit the decks and instantly had the girls swooning as he played his usual cutting edge remixes whilst looking suitably cool in his Rayban wayfarers and hoodie despite the 25 degree heat.
Before long the outdoor terrace was heaving with attractive girls and boys guzzling the ever flowing supply of Belvedere and unwinding on the Moroccan day beds. As the sun shone, the terrace was more reminiscent of a summer scene in St Tropez as opposed to SW3 and it wasn’t long before girls were on up on the raised roof dancing like they were at Ibiza Rocks.

We partied all day until a combination of dehydration, sore feet and groggy afternoon drinking caught up with us and we decided it was time to re-enter the Saturday afternoon shopping reality of the KR, making the rooftop madness seem dream like. Thank you Russell and please organize it again before its dark, cold and December.
