Have you seen a more beautiful dining room? NoMad London opened its doors in 2021 and immediately gained attention thanks to its noteworthy interiors and stunning dining room that celebrates grandness and intimacy at the same time.

Located on Bow Street, The NoMad Restaurant is a three-story atrium, replicant of an Edwardian greenhouse. Designed by New York-based firm Roman and Williams, the space is flooded with natural light, but come night transforms into an intimate setting that’s both moody and sensual.

The menu celebrates local and seasonal ingredients, showcasing British and European bounty. A wood-burning grill is the focal point of the whole dining room.

EL&N

Élan means style, flair and exuberance. And smashing it on your socials, because EL&N (rebranded from Élan Café) is arguably the most Instagrammable place in town, perhaps due to its insatiable flower and love heart walls. 

EL&N started out on Park Lane and quickly became the influencers’ hangout of choice thanks to more pink than you’ll find in Elton John’s walk-in wardrobe. Seriously. The walls: pink, the floors: pink, the ceiling, yep, slime green. Only kidding. They’re pink too.

If there’s anyone who doesn’t do restaurants by halves, it’s Richard Caring. His latest opening may just be his grandest yet, complete with five giant Damien Hirst statues, opulent artwork and interiors by Martin Brudnizki. 

The interiors aren’t the only thing that makes this spot Instagrammable, the Greek and Mediterranean-inspired menu speaks for itself, boasting a delicious new feasting menu designed for sharing.

14 Hills

London is home to many rainforest-inspired restaurants but one you absolutely must visit is 14 Hills. Trees, shrubs and foliage fill the restaurant from floor to ceiling, and the views showcase the best of London’s skyline twinkling at night – it’s truly magical. 

Not only are the interiors Instagrammable, the restaurant’s dishes are simply sublime – think botanical brunches and deli favourites.

Opening late last year, Booking Office 1869 is the brainchild of hotelier and developer, Harry Handelsman (Chiltern Firehouse, The Stratford), who worked with Parisian designer Hugo Toro, to create a space inspired by the original 19th century St. Pancras ticket hall. 

Seating 120, the room has huge dominating interiors, from the 8-metre tall palm trees and pendant lights to the 22-metre long bar.

One exterior you’ve no doubt seen splattered across your Insta feed is Chelsea’s No. 50 Cheyne. The restaurant, popular with every South West Londoner, is simply stunning. 

The riverside destination is home to classic interiors, from sweeping grandeur curtains lining the giant windows to banquette seating. The kitchen, headed by Iain Smith, champions the best of British ingredients, all that centre around the grill that greets you as you step foot inside.

South Place Hotel

It’s not summer in London without South Place Hotel dealing out all of the #InstaGoals and we already can’t wait to see this year’s makeover…

Linnaean 

Named after the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus, whose impressive work to the taxonomic rank helped communicate our understanding of who we are, and how we as individuals fit into the world surrounding us, Linnaean is a spot that’s on one hell of a health kick. Fused together through a love for health, beauty and lifestyle, all of your girlie needs are catered for here, from the health-driven cafe, natural beauty treatments, to a little lifestyle boutique for all of your self-pampering needs. 

Unlike most ‘Instagrammable’ venues, Linnaean manages to deliver on all accounts and ticks all of your interior goals as soon as you step inside. Flowers hang above you and every single aspect was immaculate but without being overbearing.

The London Edition

We challenge you to walk into the vast dining room of Berners Tavern inside the London EDITION and not mutter “wow”. It’s hard to get an original shot here so embrace the art covered walls, ornate ceiling and huge central chandelier in your viewfinder. 

The food is good too – Berners mac and cheese with braised beef blade or poached lobster; roasted lemon sole; or sharing giant steaks.

A post shared by Annabel’s (@annabelsmayfair)

Founded in 1963, Annabel’s is arguably one of the most elegant private clubs in London. Its guests have included royalty, Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elizabeth Taylor and Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s notoriously difficult to get membership with new members requiring a proposer, a seconder and an election by Committee – you’re not just walking in. Since reopening the venue designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (alongside The Ivy, Sexy Fish, 34 Mayfair), has retained the period features of the listed building, with many aspects being restored, including a grand cantilevered stone staircase, elaborate plaster ceilings and majestic Rococo style fireplaces. Known to pop up in many, if not all of the most Instagrammable restaurant guides around, Annabel’s is a haven of colour and unique embellishments.

What’s more, Annabel’s in Mayfair has loos that you could imagine Marilyn Monroe washing her hands in back in the day, or Audrey Hepburn gasping in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. They’re glam, girly, and by far the most Instagrammable in the city.

Where: 46 Berkeley Square, Mayfair, W1J 5AT
Website: www.annabels.co.uk

Aubaine

Not only does Aubaine offer exceptional French cuisine, they also deliver on Instagrammable interiors. You already know we’re a sucker for a floral installation but seriously, how cute are these wisteria shots?! Pull up a pew, grab yourself a cocktail and soak up these dreamy interiors.

Saint Aymes

Inspired by the beauty of their Nanas’ floral garden, Michela and Lois Wilson have mastered the art of sexy window displays and are available for interior hire as a result. From flowers bursting with colour to slithers of lavender and more, the noteworthy Saint Aymes is a real beauty.

Where: 59 Connaught Street, W2 2BB
Website: www.saintaymes.com

A favourite among critics, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught constantly has a waiting list. Not only is it beautifully pink, the restaurant also boasts three Michelin stars!

If it’s a night to remember what you’re after, book yourself in at the Chef’s Table. You’ll find glorious bespoke Matteo Gonet lamps dazzling on the customised pink, marble tabletop, surrounded by plush armchairs. The menu is unbeatable – don’t hesitate, get your name on the booking list pronto.

Not to mention it’s home to one of London’s most expensive tasting menus.

Amazonico

For rainforest vibes, it’s got to be Amazonico. The Berkeley Square haunt has become the go-to place to head for a next-level date night. 

Inspired quite literally by the Amazon rainforest, expect a flurry of shrubbery and hanging palms, and even the occasional peacock running around…

Brasserie of Light

It’s not everyday you see a sparkling Pegasus adorning the ceiling while you’re tucking into a meal, but then again it’s not everyday you’re dining at Oxford Street’s Brasserie of Light. Designed by the legendary Damien Hirst, you’ll find this crystal-encrusted Pegasus tucked inside Selfridge’s. Oh, and the food isn’t half bad either.

Make sure you stop off by the loos too – it’s a pink paradise inside.

Sky Garden

20 Fenchurch Street was beautifully designed by renowned architect Rafael Viñoly. The building spans 37 stories and rhubarb occupies the top three levels alongside the public space known as Sky Garden, which provides 45,000 sq ft of high-level amenity space. Visitors can wander around the exquisitely landscaped gardens with 360-degree panoramic views of London and all of the flora and fauna they need!

Circolo Popolare

Ooo Mama! Circolo Popolare certainly does nothing in half measures. Quite literally, there’s 20,000 bottles of spirits adorning the walls. Fun vibes are a’plenty at this latest haunt. The interiors boast over-the-top, raunchy, in-ya face vibes and we’d have it no other way. Colours boom from the outside in as does flora and fauna. In fact, there’s literally a huge rainforest growing out of the wall, so much so that Tarzan is jealous.

Move over pink, you’ve had your time. Last spring saw iconic restaurant, Sketch wave goodbye to the millennial pink era and enter a bumblebee-hued movement.

Redesigned by project architect India Mahdavi and British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare CBE RA, the Mayfair establishment has entered a sunshine-yellow era, with stunning dyed fabrics, hand-carved wooden masks and checkered yellow seating.

Don’t miss your chance to stop by the loos either. Arguably London’s most Instagrammable if that’s a thing…

Move over pink, you've had your time.

With wonderful views, modern British cuisine, private dining rooms and a three-story high atrium bar this venue is destined for spectacular events.

No 197 Chiswick Fire Station

No 197 Chiswick Fire Station gives you serious interior envy. It’ll make you want to white wash your walls, plant a few cacti and replace your sofa with something soft and pink. If a complete home renovation isn’t on the cards then head over to Chiswick instead, for your fix of all things Instagrammable (brunch will call for a #flatlay).

Bob Bob Ricard

Who wouldn’t want their very own ‘press for Champagne’ button? A favourite for Dream Home boards on Pinterest, these nifty little buttons aren’t the only photogenic feature of Soho’s Bob Bob Ricard. Just take a peek inside the private dining room that’s modelled on the Royal Dining Carriage – it’s elegant, it’s elaborate and it’s giving us serious FOMO.

Clos Maggiore 

Dim lighting is ideal for date night anyway but add in the fact that you’re dining under a canopy of blossoms and the romance factor just went through the roof. 

It’s worth noting that the famous conservatory makes up a small section of the restaurant so if you are considering Valentine’s Day, forget it – it’s already booked way in advance we guarantee it. Staff are polished, tablecloths are crisp and the wine list extensive.

Where: 33 King Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 8JD
Website: www.closmaggiore.com

Rake’s Cafe Bar 

Rake’s, a café by day and bar by night, is the place to escape the buzz of the City. The Front Room features varying local DJs from Thursday to Saturday, while The Parlour is the perfect casual setting for a cocktail with friends.

There’s even a secret room- No.3- for hosting private events. You can’t get more Insta-worthy than that!

Where: 40 Liverpool Street London, EC2M 7QN
