Why every design aficionado should visit Sketch London

A dream…a desire…a vision…came to life when world famous restaurateur Mourad Mazouz and 3 star Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire join forces to give life to Skectch London. A restaurant, that´s an Art Gallery, that´s a top social location, that´s a Design Bar, that´s one of the hottest “must go to spot” in the British capital, probably in all the UK as well.

Can we honestly say that the restaurant´s description (sketch.london) doesn´t make us want to go there “there is a gallery of projected art in a room so clean and rare while the sun is up, which at night, at 7, becomes a brasserie of light. Food of all kinds passes the table where you sit, to be picked and chosen for your heart’s desire. As the midnight hour approaches, tables and chairs are brushed away to allow movement and dance that comes when music infuses the room.” I don´t think so…

5 different spaces build up this incredible top restaurant in London:

The Gallery:

David Shrigley used 239 new works on the restaurant walls, forming the largest group of original drawings the creator has ever exhibited. India Mahdavi, conceived a smoothing, monochromatic, strikingly comprehensive interior to “hold” the 239 different works from David, thus creating this unique environment.

The Lecture Room & Library:

“Up up up”! Going through the stairs on our way up, we enter the Lecture Room & Library, where we can find Sketch’s two Michelin starred gastronomic restaurant. Gahban O’Keeffe was the design mentor for this astonishing and spacious atmosphere. Awarded, more than once, for their wine list, The Lecture Room & Library presents its customers with Gourmet Rapid Lunch, “à la Carte” and Tasting Menus experiences. Vivid colors, odd shapes, brilliant patterns and amazing comfort go “hand-to-hand” with Pierre´s sui generis food.

The Parlour

If someone said to you “let´s lounge on a variety of Louis XV seating in the quirky and eccentric patisserie, restaurant and bar”, you would probably that they were out of their minds! But it is true, and that place is called The Parlour @ Sketch London. From breakfast to the last cocktail of the day, The Parlour is most defiantly a multicultural place, a design bar and restaurant, where the surroundings take you to a constant state of awareness and calmness.

The Glade

“Fairy-tale forest” is what they call it. Carolyn Quartermaine and Didier Mahieu are the minds behind this “découpage forest which appears like something half-remembered and yet completely contemporary”. Once again this is a “must see” location, where one only believes about its existence once you actually see for yourself. Breakfast, afternoon tea, comfort food and evening cocktails is what you can expect from this “romantic forest”. Real 50´s rattan furniture, from the South of France, reinforces the romantic and fairy-tale look that the room intends to present its visitors.

The East Bar

Last but not the least, The East Bar is an ultra modern bar and lounge created by Mourad Mazouz & acclaimed designer Noe Douchafour Lawence. In order to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, the creators had one purpose: create an intimate but stylist environment, in order to introduce each costumer to the wonderful voyage that they are about to enter.

I will have to end this article like it was started: can you honestly say that you are not intrigued to go to this restaurant?
