Part of LDV and named after New York’s most charming neighbourhood, north of Little Italy, Nolita Social brings the energy of the 'New York night’ to London, with a heady mix of elevated cocktails, live music and DJs playing for a stylish, yet carefree crowd. Located beneath Sette (Knightsbridge, London), this ‘underground’ lounge offers guests a journey of social discovery, beginning with early evening cocktails and light bites, transitioning to a feel good after hours hangout.
