Sketch review

Words may fail you in this venue but let your senses do the talking. You’ll be greeted by a faceless dog statue on the wall as you enter and you best overcome your surprise as this is an omen of things to come.

In the centre in Mayfair, you’ll be in awe at the jaw-dropping menagerie of spectacular features. On arrival, uber-hip electro music and the delicious smells of scented candles cocoon you as you take a pause to adjust to the lights, sights and ambiance of the Parlour. And therein the wonderland begins.

Several spaces are available for private dining; all radically different and all with a unique and impressive identity.

The pink and rose gold Gallery, adjacent to the Glade is a myriad of light pink hues and humorous sketches created by Turner Prize Nominee and Fourth Plinch commissioned David Shrigley.

Winding your way up the mosaic staircase, you reach the two Michelin star awarded restaurant attached to which is the Library room. This semi-private space soaks up the ambiance from the dining room itself but is enclosed enough for business functions and includes an adjacent drinks area. The décor nods to traditional styles but like all things in sketch, art pieces and colours drive the room to the here and now.

One thing’s for certain; sketch in Mayfair will get your guests talking for months, maybe even years, afterwards. The bathrooms alone will entertain but we’ll leave it up to you to find out why.

This unique and exciting venue has to be seen to be believed.
