We’re finally seeing some sort of light after lockdown, and I’m sure many of us are wanting to eat somewhere where the surroundings are just as appetising as our food. Luckily, there is no shortage of instagrammable dining spots in London. We’ve rounded up our list of the most snap-worthy restaurants in the city.
Sketch is truly a dining emporium like no other - restaurants and art all found on Mayfair’s Conduit Street. Designed by Mourad Mazou, Sketch is made up of four uniquely designed restaurants and a bar that sits beneath the pod-style toilets (undoubtedly the most photographed bathroom in London).
Other instrammable spots include the Swarovski-encrusted bathroom and pastel pink gallery with David Shrigley artwork adorning the walls.
2. SEXY FISH
Richard Caring’s Sexy Fish is really a sight to behold, for your eyes and your IG account! As one of the city’s most flamboyant restaurants, Sexy Fish cost £15 million to produce. With bronze Damien Hirst designed bronze mermaids, a giant gold plated crocodile, a giant gold plated crocodile on display, and walls running with water - it’s easy to see why.
Not to mention, the private dining room boasts its own real-life aquarium!
3. BOURNE & HOLLINGSWORTH
If you love plants - then you’ll absolutely adore the leafy vibe at Bourne & Hollingsworth. Located in Clerkenwell, this right and airy dining room is the stuff of dreams. From the decor to the dishes, everything here is extremely photogenic. The interiors boast a minimalist yet vibrant vibe, with tropical upholstery, antique furniture and whitewashed walls and plants galore!
When speaking of interior dreams, then Annabel’s definitely comes to mind. Dreamchild of designer Martin Brudnizki, the iconic members club recently reopened in 2019 following a revamp, with a glitzy new design theme that draws on surrealism and eccentricity.
The gorgoeus pink powder room, and the bespoke chandelier installation festooned with unicorn and monkeys will have you photographing everything in sight!
With its sunny yellow facade, Gloria, a totally decadent and over the top Italian trattoria brights up the Great Eastern Street in London. Even if you haven’t been there yourself yet, you’re more than likely to have seen it on your IG feed. Everything about this place was made to be photographed, including the interiors which were designed by Studio Kiki. Think marble tabletops, gilded light fixtures and pinstripe upholstery.
The food is also a treat not only for your tastebuds but your sight as well. The carbonara sharing dish, for instance, comes served in a wheel of parmesan.
A stylish, and instagrammable foodie tour deserves a stay at a stylish location and in an instagrammable hotel! Spread across three pretty white town houses in peaceful Leinster Square, New Linden is based in the heart of London’s cosmopolitan Notting Hill neighbourhood, a short walk from the Portobello Road Market and within easy reach of various tourist hotspots including Hyde Park, Oxford Street and Westfield Shopping Centre.
