Nicky Haslam

A detour last night to The Pheasantry in London’s Kings Road. Once a somewhat decadent bar in the 80s, now part Pizza Express restaurant and home to an intimate basement jazz club. The reason a charming evening with Nicky Haslam, supernova interior designer, to hear his take on classic Cole Porter and the 30s and 40s chanteuse, Lee Wiley. Accompanied by the renowned pianist, Tom Wakeley, Nicky exudes wit, charm and wonderful renditions of songs a great many people under 50 have rarely heard. He possesses that rare skill of drawing you into his stories without looking like his trying. Highly recommended.
