The Scene

Nestled on a cozy tree-lined street, Beach Blanket Babylon is a quintessential Notting Hill retreat perfect for enchanting evenings in lush surroundings.

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.

Tip from Adriana:

The wait for a table sometimes takes up to thirty minutes so be sure to make a reservation in advance. Otherwise, the bar provides plenty of liquid distractions while you wait.

Quintissentially Quirky

An eclectic collection of interior design, Beach Blanket Babylon jumped straight out of a fairytale and into the charming streets of London. Although the prices are somewhat steep, the experience is worth every penny. I went there for my 18th birthday with 15 friends, and I couldn't have enjoyed myself more. The cocktail list is full of fantastically named drinks, my personal favourite being the 'Pornstar Martini'. I would definitely recommend a visit, if not to eat then at least to experience the atmosphere and sample their cocktails, I wouldn't be surprised if just that had you going back for more.
Great for Sunday Lunch!

BBB in Notting Hill is exactly how you would imagine Alice's house (from Alice in Wonderland) to look like. At least during the day. There are cupcakes, teapots, and beautiful people everywhere. There are three floors, and each one has its own personality. The main floor is where you can find attractive bartenders making the most creative cocktails and visitors having their afternoon tea. I went there for lunch and ended up staying there until dinnertime! I had my fill of scones with large amounts of clotted cream and jam; very strong and fruity cocktails; and the most delicious cheese platter I've ever had. A great place to catch up with your girlfriends and treat yourselves to a bit of pampering.
