MAKING A TOAST: It may have been a schlep to the depths of Haggerston for some, but it was worth it to sample Danny and Keiran Clancy’s hospitality at Beagle, the restaurant where Johan Lindeberg and Kim Sion hosted a dinner with Absolut Elyx vodka for guests including Tallulah Harlech, Mary Charteris (who was a touch late owing to an earlier DJ-ing engagement), Chelsea Leyland, Lara Bohinc and artist Margot Bowman.
Never off duty, Lindeberg and Sion were in the process of an impromptu Instagram shoot involving a bicycle as a prop when some guests rounded the corner to arrive at the terrace outside the restaurant. “I am just in town for two days but I wanted to catch up with everyone and a dinner is the nicest way to get us all together,” Lindeberg told WWD.

Dinner was a hands-on affair, with shell-on Shetland langoustines and whole seabass fishes proving a tasty challenge to some levels of dexterity and patience. Especially after one or two martinis.
The Clancy brothers, meanwhile, were looking forward to Ibiza in the summer. The duo DJ together and run hugely popular off-location parties under the name of Krankbrother. “You should come to Ibiza,” said Danny. “We are throwing a party on a 110-foot yacht, sailing out to Formentera and playing loud music all day. The Russians in their super yachts seem to like it when we park up next to them.”
