After a high-pressure week of meetings, management and making connections, the best way to unwind is to plug in your headphones and allow a superb selection of tunes to take your brain far away from the world of work. Enter the Walpole Weekend Wind-Down: a monthly playlist of tracks created by one of our Walpole members or partners that will help you transition into a weekend headspace.
Our December playlist has been created by one of our most recent Walpole members, ...At Sloane. A cosy, Arts & Crafts masterpiece situated close to Sloane Square, this new Chelsea destination was created by famed architect-designer Francois-Joseph Graf. Combining French flair and British sensibility, the new 30-bedroom hotel features two new gathering spaces: a spectacular light filled restaurant on the top floor and a sultry, speakeasy-style bar on the lower ground floor. This bar is soundtracked by the hotel's resident record-master, DJ Malik, who spins a dark, electro soundtrack as the mixologists handcraft signature cocktails to be enjoyed in the candlelight. Perhaps a Mezcaloma (..At Sloane’s deep, Mezcal twist on the normally light and crisp Paloma) or a Citronelle (combining lemongrass-infused Seventy-One gin and freshly pressed cucumber juice, served in a frozen glass exactly -6 degrees in temperature)?

"Combining the luscious sounds of Turkish psychedelic rock band Altın Gün with the melodic Afro beats of Eko Roosevelt, our cosy Walpole Weekend Wind-Down playlist will help you brush the cold away and settle into the groove of the weekend," says the ...At Sloane team. "With the likes of Roxy Music and Grace Jones, our playlist is the ideal kick-back mix - bringing the playfulness of ...At Sloane to even the most conservative of indulgers.
"Echoing the tunes played in our hotel’s lower floor ‘speakeasy style’ bar, our playlist encapsulates the ...At Sloane weekend experience: Champagne and seasonal cocktails under candlelight, snug rooms and live DJ sets by the fireplace, and sensual scents infused around plush velvet seating - leading you all the way through the evening."
If this has whetted your appetite for a night out in Chelsea, you can enjoy live international DJ sets in the bar on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8pm. Dance the night away to disco, Eighties Latin American, electronica and soul until the early hours.
