Cool place, good atmosphere and decent cocktails. We used to hang at this place a lot more than now however it's definitely a good shout if in the Bond St area. Tucked away nicely from the crowds. If you're dining here then that's also a fabulous experience. Defo check it out!

I went to Sketch twice for dinner and breakfast. Both were great. I think it is ideal for lunch and dinner- at least for me. Service was really nice and made us feel special. What's better than the food was the interior design of the place. Literally, so elegant, so beautiful and so creative.

We went for drinks and visited all of the bars (there are 3- all different in theme but 2 have the same drinks menu, the downstairs "round" one and the upstairs "main" one- the third, also downstairs, is a table service bar with a different drinks menu)- anyway, we liked the round bar downstairs because it is smaller & more...

Visited Sketch in March 2016.Rather than offering a tasting menu the a la carte menu offered starters, mains and desserts giving a brief description of each offering but when they arrived each course consisted of several individual dishes. All four in the party enjoyed each offering and the restaurant certainly lived up to its high reputation.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
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.
