Mayfair / Knightsbridge, London –
Whether in the mood for an incredibly elegant dining experience, a stroll through an art gallery, some afternoon tea, or a night of drinking and mingling, patrons will find it all at Sketch, an Alice in Wonderland delight that offers a truly enchanting experience.
Once inside, visitors will find themselves in a long hallway full of mysterious closed doors, behind which hide an array of whimsical rooms decked out in polka-dotted wallpaper, imaginative chandeliers, unusually shaped furniture, and subtle, sophisticated details.
As varied as the venue, the wide-ranging clientele includes chic and stylish socialites, local business people, artists, fashion students, and everyone in between.
On the ground floor, the Parlour room offers a warm setting with its pink and orange tones, eclectic furniture, and café tables, making it the perfect spot for tea, sandwiches, and intimate conversation by day. By night though, the Parlour turns into a bustling bar and lounge where a DJ sets up to create a frisky and flirty drinking environment.
The Gallery room features rotating art exhibits and video displays and also serves as a high-end restaurant where posh diners go to see and be seen late into the night.
Accessible only through the Gallery is the oval-shaped East Bar, a white futuristic pod with an art deco flair that provides a more exclusive and intimate space for drinking and chatting.
Guests in the mood for exquisitely upscale dining will find it upstairs in the opulent ivory-walled Lecture Room and Library, a fine restaurant that has more than earned its three-star Michelin Guide rating.
Regardless of which door they choose, visitors to Sketch are guaranteed a unique experience that combines style, art, and leisure with a polished, fashionable, and fun-loving crowd.
International mix of people from the media, art, and fashion industries, early 20s to 40s.
