Sketch | Conduit Street London | I’m In Love

I can’t remember how long I’ve wanted to visit Sketch London. Every blogger worth their blogging salt wants a photo of those iconic loo pods even if you don’t  get to spend a penny!

So, when I was visiting my friend, Lesley, recently, who lives in London, we decided we would put it on the list. If you’ve been following you’ll know that we visited Darwin Brasserie on the Friday which was fabulous.

On the Saturday, we attempted shopping on Oxford Street. We spent about an hour and a half in Top Shop .. I mean who wouldn’t? Guess what though?  We were flagging already! Lightweights .. can’t shop like we used to. Satisfied with our purchases and not too far away from Conduit Street we both looked at each other and laughing exclaimed, “we need food and fizz!”

As we didn’t book we had to wait for a space in the Parlour. With our coats safely ensconced in the cloakroom we sat patiently awaiting the flick of the charming maître d’s beckoning gesture.

This is the Parlour all bathed in a warm, neon pink glow.

The food was moreish. This is fried eggs a la Sketch. They look like scotch eggs don’t they? All the trimmings are mortadella cheese, ricotta, avocado and Portabello mushrooms. Scrumptious!

The staff were all extremely friendly and chatty when required. After our brunch our waiter even brought us complimentary macarons with our next glass of something pretty — we decided on rosé. When he came back with our wine he said he couldn’t not let us sample the macarons. It would be a crime! Imagine said in French accent. Swoon!!

Then those loos. One side of the sweeping staircase fades in and out with a blue hazy light for the guys. It’s all very surreal. I had to work quick when there was no one in shot. If you can imagine, everyone was trying to do the same as me. How cool?

Artwork by Turner Prize nominated artist, David Shrigley is everywhere. I want it all please!

It’s a cornucopia of the senses everywhere you turn. A veritable sensory overload. You feel very Alice in Wonderland-like discovering something new and gorgeous at every turn. The colours make you feel happy. It’s all very clever.

Next time I’d like to try afternoon tea in the Gallery.

Have you been to Sketch, too? I’d love to hear about it in the comments 🙂

    Isn’t Sketch glorious? We almost had our wedding reception there, but I didn’t think some of my French family would ‘get’ it. I love the Swarovski covered nude lady in the stairwell with an afro… she is my spirit animal.

      Wow, Lisa! What a place for a wedding reception! Somehow I’m thinking you must have had it at somewhere equally as marvellous 😉
