The best blue places in London
Seven blue bars, restaurants and hotels to discover in London, including Bob Bob Ricard, Batty Langley’s and The Clove Club
The Blue Bar
Possibly the bluest place in all of London, this elegant bar was designed by celebrated architect David Collins and uses tonal shades to create a stunning interior. Come here for exquisite cocktails but be quick as the no-reservations policy means this popular spot fills up fast. Smart casual attire is also mandatory.
The Blue Bar, The Berkeley, Wilton Place, London SW1X 7RL, +44 (0)20 7235 6000
The Earl of Bolingbroke suite at this Shoreditch hotel boasts more than just great views of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Its all-blue interior encompasses two levels and includes a huge canopy bed covered in crushed blue velvet cushions.
Batty Langley’s, 12 Folgate Street, London E1 6BX, +44 (0)20 7377 4390
Bob Bob Ricard
This Russian fusion restaurant is famous for its David Collins-designed red and blue dining rooms, and we particularly love its private dining area. Modelled on a royal dining carriage, the blue and gold interior really is fit for a queen.
Bob Bob Ricard, 1 Upper James Street, London W1F 9DF, +44 (0)20 3145 1000
The Clove Club
This Shoreditch restaurant might be difficult to spot if it weren’t for its bright blue door. Inside, the bold tiles make the kitchen area highly Instagrammable. This is one of only a few London eateries to introduce a ticketing system for diners, so be sure to book in advance if you want to visit.
The Clove Club, Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street, London EC1V 9LT, +44 (0)20 7729 6496
With interiors created by designer Tom Dixon, this British restaurant has a stunning all-blue aesthetic, breathtaking views and even better food – served on blue plates, of course. If you weren’t a huge fan of the colour blue before your visit, this restaurant is sure to change your mind.
Craft London, Peninsula Square, Greenwich Peninsula, London, SE10 0SQ, +44 (0)20 8465 5910
This sub-zero bar features walls, a bar, tables and even your own personal glass made entirely of ice, and appears bright blue due to coloured lights that shine through the ice sculptures. It’s so cold here you’ll be given a metallic-blue thermal cape to wear – if that doesn’t call for a selfie, we don’t know what does.
Icebar London, 31-33 Heddon Street, London W1B 4BN, +44 (0)20 7478 8910
Sea Life After Dark
Experience life in the deep blue sea at Sea Life London Aquarium during one of its special late-night events. With a drink in hand, you can discover sea creatures after dark, and the glass walls and shark tunnel will make you feel as though you’re actually underwater.
Sea Life London Aquarium, County Hall, Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7PB, +44 (0)871 663 1678
