7 Most Beautiful Restaurants/Bars in London
Sketch has often been called the most beautiful restaurant in the world. If you only visit one spot on this list, Sketch should be the one. The Gallery is where you want to be at Sketch. Inside The Gallery, you are transported to a cotton candy dream surrounded by illustrations done by the brilliant visual artist, David Shrigley. Take a trip to the restroom where you will be ascending to a room full of alien looking “pods”, which function as individual bathroom stalls. Sketch is a design dream.

Gong at Shangri-la at The Shard
Where else can you get such a sweeping view of all of London? Located on the 52nd floor of Shangri-La Hotel, at The Shard. If you’re thinking about buying a ticket to go to the top of The Shard, I say skip that and make a reservation here for drinks so you can relax and take in the view at your leisure. It’s one of my favorite spots in London. I suggest going during around sunset!

Elan Cafe has taken London by storm by appearing in every single blogger and influencer’s instagram page. The cafe itself is adorned with pink colored flowers throughout creating the perfect backdrop for photos. They also offer a variety of unique lattes and cakes along with a full menu to create the perfect photo moment. There are multiple locations throughout London, I suggest popping in if you happen to see one!
Mr. Fogg’s House of Botanicals
One of the many houses of Mr. Foggs, and perhaps my favorite. The vibe here is different from the other houses; it is bright and airy versus dark and moody. What I love most about all of Mr. Foggs houses is that every house is a different experience. All the cocktails and light bites here are inspired by strange and exotic botanicals and plantlife.
One of the very first “pink” go to places in London. There’s always some sort of floral installation outside that speaks to the season. In this photograph, I caught it in October, hence the skulls and pumpkin design. During the summer, it’s always some pink floral arrangement that compliments the color of the bakery itself.
Dalloway Terrance transforms itself every season with its stunning floral display that sets the mood of the restaurant. It is tastefully done without trying too hard. The adult place to have the perfect brunch and maybe take a few photos! The current winter installation is breathtaking!
Aubaine at Selfridges
Tucked inside the second floor of Selfridges, this is a hidden oasis draped in wisteria. The stunning setting makes the perfect mid-shop stop for a cup of coffee or lunch. Highly suggest you make a reservation early if you want to get a great shot by the window!
