Notting Hill, London –
Nestled on a cozy tree-lined street, Beach Blanket Babylon is a quintessential Notting Hill retreat perfect for enchanting evenings in lush surroundings.
Passing the pristine patio tables and white awnings outside, patrons step into a veritable Rococo wonderland of baroque candelabrum, gold statues, vases with towering floral arrangements, and a bar piled with lavish bowls of fruit.
The equally golden and gorgeous clientele of media and business professionals, designers, and other artistic souls crowd around the bar to wait for their handcrafted cocktails.
The space offers plenty of variety to meet anyone’s mood, from the intimate tables given over to cozy conversations and the comfy seating by the opulent fireplace, to the more exuberant bar area where mingling is the order of the day.
With just the right mix of rock chic, boho luxe, and romantic whimsy, Beach Blanket Babylon guarantees a fashionable night on the town.
Attractive and successful media and creative types, mid-20s to mid-40s.
Music tends toward pop and chart toppers.
Both prix fixe menus and à la carte options available for lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner starting at 1pm. Menus feature healthy and sophisticated fare such as beetroot salad, wild salmon and risotto dishes, and savory tarts.
Bar snacks such as cheese plates and crispy squid served later in the evening.
Appetizers £10.50, entrées £15.50. Wine £7.50, cocktails £9.50, champagne £48+/bottle.
Smart casual to dressy.
Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays generally draw the largest crowds.
