Kelly Brook is to open a 'Great Gatsby' themed nightclub.

The brunette beauty has promised the Steam and Rye bar will be a glamorous 1940s inspired drinking den in central London and is ''thrilled'' to be partnering with famed nightclub owner Nick House, who brought celebrity haunts Mahiki and Whisky Mist to the UK capital.

Kelly said: ''I have always been inspired by the glamour and opulence of 1940s Americana. This is my first venture into hospitality and we've teamed up to deliver something extra-ordinary. There's nothing like it in London.''

The 33-year-old model-and-actress' new club will offer live music and dancing, cocktails and a tasty menu, when it opens in November.

Nick - whose nightspots are a hit with Prince Harry and the royal set - has brought in production designer Jonathan Lee to kit out the 550-capacity venue which was inspired by the glamour of old Hollywood films and the 1925 novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald focusing on the opulent lifestyles of characters in the roaring 20s.

He said: ''The concept sprang to life in my head, a combination of ¬movies ranging from 'Hugo' to 'Gangs of New York'. I set out to have the audience immersed in this world and take them on a journey.''
