ROOMS WITH A VIEW: One of the most sought-after invitations this season is to the Paramount private members club, perched 32 stories above London’s West End. Housed on the top three floors of Richard Seifert’s iconic Centre Point building, the club offers a restaurant, bar, viewing gallery and private event space designed by Mark Way and Tom Dixon. The copper, slate and sea green interior features design elements that reference the modernist architecture of the building, such as bar stools designed by Norman Cherner. A large copper bar that recalls the edge of a cut gemstone is the focal point of the dining room. In the restaurant, head chef James O’Connor’s traditional British menu includes roast loin of pork with applesauce and “bubble-and-squeak” — that’s shallow fried vegetables — and braised ox cheeks with baby onions, mushrooms and pancetta.
