In a city filled with exquisite and innovative restaurants it has become difficult to be considered a world class venue, yet there is nothing quite on the same calibre as London’s electric and vibrant Sketch. In addition to the popular attractions that surround the location, Sketch has become a restaurant that’s added to a traveller’s bucket lists – both for its cuisine and interior decor.
Located in Mayfair, a district scattered with shops and restaurants of London’s expected elegance, Sketch’s magic is only discovered once you enter the 18th-century townhouse. A quirky tea spot that transforms into a cocktail lounge at night, this unique spot is the epitome of the diverse activities London has to offer. The layout of the restaurant is divided into five subsections: the parlour (dining and cocktails), the east bar and pods (which includes a space bar), the glade, the gallery (afternoon tea), and the restaurant lecture room and library.
With a menu devised by French Master Chef Pierre Gagnaire, the critically praised restaurant provides guests with a delicious ‘tasting’ and ‘a la carte’ menu experience that’s more than worthy of it’s acclaim. Like most restaurants within the city, the taste you find within London is a diverse explosion of various cultures, which all combine to create an always impressive and innovative food scene.
In the restaurant, experience a salt aged goosnargh duck, or perhaps choose from their fine selection of wine; all available within a sophisticated venue that Gagnaire refers to as a “flower.” Describing the food as the middle of the flower and the other existing factors as the “petals”, the acclaimed chef designed the restaurant specifically to impress his guests as a whole, relying on both his cuisine and the venue’s stunning visuals.
