In the age of the influencer, no colour is having a bigger moment than pink. The popular shade is sashaying its way across our Insta and TikTok feeds, and the hospitality industry is following suit – with pink decor and food to draw in the aesthetic-hungry crowds. Whether it’s millennial pink, blush, fuschia or coral – if the interiors are pink, there’s a good chance there’s going to be a queue out the door…
While the sky above London is almost always grey, its bars and restaurants are a pink paradise for those who love a rosy hue. We’ve found the best pink places in London for you to enjoy – from Instagrammable cafes to snap-worthy hotels, and even lush loos!
The Most Instagrammable Pink Places In London
Annabel’s in Mayfair love being pretty in pink; that’s a given, with the lushest loos you’ve ever laid your eyes on. Located on the second floor, The Ladies’ Powder Room is a haven of pink onyx basins, brass wall lights shaped like blossoms, silk flower-lined ceilings, and pink marble flooring.
We honestly can’t get enough of Annabel’s loos – so it’s a good thing they’ve got not one, but two sets of pink powder rooms to choose from. Annabel’s basement nightclub bathrooms are every bit as lavish as their second floor counterparts, with grey and pink marble-pattered flooring, antique mirror vanity units, a sculpture by Pierre Federspiel from 1900, and a velvet-tented pink-toned ceiling.
This venue’s quirky name comes from Napoleon’s first wife, one of history’s most famous lovers Joséphine de Beauharnais, and this can totally be felt inside as the atmosphere emanates a total sexiness.
With the interior covered in lashings of glitter, you’ll be able to snap the perfect Insta either on the dance floor or off. Sips and serves include Love Potion No. 10, a strawberry-infused Bombay Sapphire gin topped off nicely with prosecco, and ‘soup of the day’ is always champers at pink venue Tonight Josephine!
Peggy Porschen has seen many an influencer adorn its pink exterior to pose for a quick Insta-snap. The enticing location has an outside as pink as the icing on the cakes, and a vibrancy like no other that goes hand in hand with chilled Champagne and a slice of something sugary.
With seasonal collections of sweet treats on rotation, it’s always the perfect time to indulge! Be it a Jolly Gingerbread dressed as Cupid on Valentine’s, a Father Christmas iced cookie at Christmas, or a Spiced Apple Cupcake in Autumn – there’s enough to entice your taste buds.
If pink is your thing, you’ll love how dreamy Doña is with its pink hues and sparkly jazz club vibes – it’s also hugely women-led.
Open Wednesday through to Sunday, the bar specialises in temptingly good Mezcal cocktails, and we can already vouch that our favourite is the Fiorella packed full of Dangerous Don Mezcal, ginger, supasawa, agave, lime wheel and coffee beans.
The Berkeley has been up to its old tricks again, and this time it’s with the arrival of the Berkeley Bar and Terrace. Conceived by Irish interior designer Bryan O’Sullivan, its design is effortlessly beautiful and eye-catching. There’s a really intimate feel to this bar, with a sense of old-world glamour and its own terrace for the warmer evenings, overlooking St Paul’s Church.
The space gives off 1970s vibes thanks to the décor. The central material is a stunning walnut wood, taken from a 300-year-old tree from the Fullback Estate, Lincolnshire. It’s coupled with a colour palette of soft corals, creams and pinks to offset its earthy richness. Totally dreamy.

We’re off to Peckham next, notably to Frank’s Café Rooftop Bar which is tickling us pink with its vivacious walls. The stairwell was given a fresh lick of paint by Simon Whybray back in 2016, and now it’s got a real Baz Luhrmann vibe going on – and we really rate it.
On the bottom floor there’s Peckham Levels’ bars and restaurants, an ideal spot for a good boogie and top up of delicious food offerings, or head up top during summer time for incredible views of the city skyline. If you’re up for a good ol’ night out with the promise of a hipster Insta shot, then this is the one.
