Tucked away in the heart of London’s chic Mayfair, Sketch houses an art-gallery and several hip restaurants and cool bars under one roof. Pop into the stylishly designed Sketch for dinner, drinks and to soak up the vibrant atmosphere.
Opened in 2002, Sketch was masterminded by legendary French chef Pierre Gagnaire and restaurateur Mourad Mazouz. And what a fuss they caused. Mazouz and his team of chefs and designers created a destination for art, music and fabulous food & decadent drinks in a converted 18th century building in Conduit Street, Mayfair.
The site consists of the Lecture Room & Library, the Gallery, the Glade, the Parlour, and the East Bar. There’s a choice of casual dining on the ground floor – the Gallery, Parlour and Glade -, or a grander approach upstairs – The Lecture Room & Library.
Michelin-rated Lecture Room & Library restaurant is open throughout the week, it attracts style-savvy people and serves Pierre Gagnaire’s award-winning menu. Your taste buds will thank you. Turner prize winning artist Martin Creed transformed the Gallery restaurant and created a striking visual feast. In the daytime it is open to the public as a gallery. The Glade is a magical woodland room where you can eat comfort food, sip cocktails and try the yummy afternoon tea. By day an eclectic tearoom known as the Parlour entertains a fashion crowd, while at night it turns into a cocktail bar. If you feel like mingling, go to the super small, but intimate East Bar. Don’t forget to check out the cool cocoon-like toilets.
