Sketch London: A Must-Visit
Conduit Streets Sketch
If you know anything about the London Restaurant scene, it’s fair to say you will have heard of Conduit Streets Sketch. Often described as one of the most Instagrammable Restaurants in the world, and a standard celebrity favourite, this art fuelled venue guarantees to take you on a creative journey, from its three Michelin Star ‘Lecture Room & Library’ Restaurant, to the infamous Bathroom Pods.
Four unique dining environments..
Prior to making a name for itself as an awe inspiring dining location, the three-storey Georgian Townhouse was home to an array of societies and institutions over the years, including Christian Dior’s London Atelier in the Mid 20th Century. In 2003, the building, rich in History, caught the attention of restaurateur Mourad Mazouz (‘Momo’) and was transformed into the four unique dining environments you’ll find there today; The Parlour, The Glade, The Gallery and The Lecture Room & Library.
A Patisserie by day, seek comfort in the warm, ambient Parlour room, fit with vibrant, luxurious seating options and a menu full of sweet treats and comfort-eater favourites. From the ‘9 Conduit Street (Full English) to the ‘Vegan Sketch-Dog’, you can expect to find all the classics, with a quirky Sketch-like twist. After dark, The Parlour transforms into a sultry, dim-lit bar, perfect for a special night, with a special someone.

This fairytale-like landscape is inspired by a 20th Century French postcard. The designers re-painted it, enlarged it, printed it onto wallpaper, and mapped it out across the walls to create an immersive woodland experience. It’s furnishings are no less impressive, with a moss-like carpet, velvet chairs and stunning illuminated bar – you can understand why many Sketch-goers opt for The Glade as their special lunch spot.
A dining environment many will have come across on Instagram, widely recognised for its powder pink everything, velvet furnishings and David Shrigley designed tableware to match his artwork covering the walls. The menu is filled with stunning dishes, but the Gallery is best known for it’s Afternoon Tea. Expect extravagance at every turn, from the personal Tea Master to the infamous cake trolley.
The Lecture Room & Library
The 3 Michelin Star Restaurant offers a more traditional, fine-dining experience. Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s unique, inspiring Tasting Menu is paired to match its flamboyant, rich surroundings – from the warm hued drapes, to the gentleman’s club inspired armchairs.
Don’t forget to take a trip to the bathroom, and snap the most obvious of Sketch selfies against the backdrop of the white egg-shaped toilets.
