The Restaurant is on the second floor and a member of staff came down to welcome and take us up. we ordered a nice bottle of Argentinian Malbec, which was £61. Of course many of the wines are quiet expensive.... More

I was in Sketch restaurant with a big group of people. Needless to say that the restaurant is high level so our expectations were very high. The food was amazing, the wine list seemed to be endless. On of the things that still comes to my mind when I think about Sketch is the toilet room. Kubrick style, amazing. Highly... More

My friends and I popped into Sketch today for a quick drink before viewing the David Bowie art collection at Sotherby's which is close by. It fitted perfectly with our artsy day out having the most fun and eclectic interiors I have ever seen! Even a trip to the loo is a surreal experience. The staff were very welcoming indeed... More

I have had Michelin starred meals before, but never a two Michelin star meal, and they didn't disappoint, from having drinks downstairs (we arrived early) to being escorted upstair, and being made to feel like a million dollars! We started and finished with champagne, and had the most divine food, which was a tasting experience unmatched, recommended

I went here for a business meeting but, after enjoying one too many glasses of 'Winston Churchill's favourite Champagne', I walked out a woman who had just had a life experience of the senses! I know, dramatic but you wouldn't believe the number of places that I've eaten in! I would love to go here again on a date, even... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
