TWO men have admitted to killing a bouncer after he “refused their entry to an exclusive Mayfair party”.
Tudor Simionov, 33, was knifed in the chest during the six-minute brawl in the early hours of New Years Day at 80 Park Lane.
Three men went on trial at the Old Bailey on Tuesday, accused of his murder.
On the second day, Adam Khalil, 20, from north-west London, and Haroon Akram, 26, of no fixed abode pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
Nor Hamada, 23, of no fixed abode, denied murder and five wounding charges and his trial continues.
Ossama Hamed, who is alleged to have delivered the fatal wound, has fled the jurisdiction.
Prosecutor Philip Evans said the defendants were among a group of friends who had been celebrating the new year at Aquum nightclub in Clapham.
They drove in an Audi and Jaguar to 80 Park Lane, the venue of an unlicensed New Year’s Eve after-party with “high” entrance prices, jurors heard.
Mobile phone clips showed the men milling around the entrance, after the defendants were allegedly turned away.
Akram was seen being held by one of the doormen before a scuffle began on the bonnet of a parked Lamborghini.
The footage also showed Hamed, 25, wielding a knife as the fight continued, the court heard.
Mr Simionov came outside to intervene in an attack on one of his colleagues and was stabbed in the chest, jurors heard.
Despite being fatally injured, the victim delivered a blow and struck Hamed down, it was alleged.
