Think Sketch for Tea

A deliciously different experience for anyone London-bound

Stepping over the threshold into the velvety powder pink interior of Sketch in London is like plunging into a strawberry mousse soufflé. From ceiling to floor, everything is deliciously pink with rose metallic accents in the artsy décor, even down to the chair legs wearing ballet slippers. Thanks to celebrated artist David Shrigley’s surreal architectural concepts, the traditional Mayfair townhouse, built in 1779 and housing the posh restaurant, conceals disconnected elements of surprise. From the fantasy atmosphere of The Glade (a mythical woodland cocktail bar) to a plethora of satirical artworks smothering the walls in The Gallery, it feels as if one has stepped into another world.
