The best pink places in London
Seven pink cafés, restaurants and stores to discover in London, including Sketch, Peggy Porschen and Dandelyan
This is probably the sweetest looking (and tasting) bakery in all of Belgravia. The pastel pink exterior of this café and cake shop already makes it highly Instagrammable but step inside and you’ll find pink marble cake, glittery cupcakes and latte art that will cause a social media meltdown.
Peggy Porschen, 116 Ebury Street, London SW1W 9QQ, +44 (0)20 7730 1316
Dandelyan at Mondrian London
This award-winning bar in the Mondrian hotel was devised by renowned designer Tom Dixon. It has excellent views of London and even better interiors. Head to a bubblegum pink leather couch and order a Wyld afternoon tea, which includes finger sandwiches, savoury snacks, scones and retro-styled cakes.
Mondrian London, 20 Upper Ground, London SE1 9PD, +44 (0)20 3747 1063
India Mahdavi, the creator of the pink interior at Sketch’s Gallery, also designed this flagship store. It’s equally as pink and pretty and has similar art deco-inspired furniture to that in the famous restaurant. Explore the new Red Valentino collection here and be sure to visit the all-pink dressing rooms.
Red Valentino, 133 Sloane Street, London SW1X 9AX, +44 (0)20 7730 8304
The Schiaparelli Suite at the May Fair Hotel
If fuchsia is your favourite shade of pink, a stay at the Schiaparelli Suite in this west London hotel will be your idea of heaven. Complete with vibrant pink velvet furnishings, the luxurious space is named after Elsa Schiaparelli, the designer who made the hue fashionable.
The May Fair Hotel, Stratton Street, London W1J 8LT, +44 (0)20 7769 4041
The Gallery at Sketch
There is no place in London pinker than this. Designed by India Mahdavi, this pastel-coloured dining room always pops up on Instagram feeds thanks to its plush chairs, art deco bar and delicious afternoon tea. Come here for a photo but stay for the great food and cocktails.
Sketch, 9 Conduit Street, London W1S 2XG, +44 (0)20 7659 4500
Pearl & Groove
The Instagram-worthy cakes at Pearl & Groove bakery are always decorated with pink rose petals and glitter, so when you take a seat (on one of the bubblegum pink chairs) you can be sure you’re about to eat something pretty.
