Before Christmas I headed to the big smoke very early doors for a blogger event and a meeting about an upcoming project. After business had been seen to for the morning I met up with my other half for a late breakfast at one of his favourite places, and somewhere he'd been telling me to visit for a while, Sketch in Mayfair.
Looking back over a few quick snaps that I took in haste during our time there, I decided perhaps they were worth a share after all for anyone looking for a unique venue to dine at in the city. If you're already aware of Sketch you'll know just what a different, eclectic and fun place to meet and eat it is. Dinner, drinks, art, music and magical interiors that spark the imagination. If you're not, then that's all the more reason for me to share the love with you here on the blog today!
Now we went for breakfast, for me a delicate plate of poached eggs with smoked salmon and a dainty cup of tea. Fresh and tasty, it did exactly the job that was required. Granted dining at Sketch, even for breakfast, isn't all that cheap, but it's somewhere I think everyone should head if they're a fan of beautiful places to experience in the city. The choice for breakfast in The Parlour ranges from eggs each and every way that you can think of, fruits, cereals, cakes, pastries and a selection of pancakes. The Parlour is open throughout the day serving comfort food, afternoon tea and many other delights in a relaxed and informal setting.
Sketch is also a great location for dining and discussing business during the working week, relaxing with friends over a spot of their famous afternoon tea or partying into the evening with a glass of bubbles in one of the five, one-of-a-kind bars and restaurants. Personally afternoon tea is high on the to do list for me, so I'm planning a trip back there someday very soon to sample some tasty, cake-y delights that I'm hoping will banish the January blues quick sharp away.
So if you're looking for somewhere a little different to entertain yourself, your clients or friends and family during your next trip to London then why not give Sketch a go. Booking is advisable ahead of your visit although in my experience they are very friendly and always do their best to accommodate. If you like your surroundings to be as interesting and inviting as your food then this is certainly a place to add to your must visit list.
Where are your favourite, unique places to dine at in the big city? Any recommendations for future London visits, places that are well worth a try?
