We catch up with musical savant Lauren Verge - a regular in Thirteen at Chateau Denmark, you can catch her next time Friday 17th May.

Best spot you’ve hit lately? 

Thirteen obviously. OK, I’m biased - I program the music and also DJ here, but I have good reason. On any weekend you are guaranteed to find one of the UK’s finest DJ’s playing on a top tier sound system. Plus you have some of the best cocktails in London to accompany said premium listening experience. 

The last thing you ate and where that blew your mind? 

Everything at The Sea, The Sea in Haggerston. A 10 course seafood tasting menu at the Chef’s table with introductions from the Chef. Totally unlike any other dining experience and 100% must do. My mind blown.

Best member’s club to arrive to – at midnight? 

I’m usually Djing at midnight but in the daytime I like Allbright which is an all-female Members club in Mayfair that brings together women from all types of industry excellence.

Best place for a coffee? 

My local café Millfields in Clapton because as well as great coffee my dog is treated like a local celebrity there and gets us free cake.

Your favourite cocktails and where to drink them? 

Cavita in Marylebone has fantastic Margs and even better Paloma’s.

You can listen to her IWD24 'More than a Woman' playlist here.
