pop on your heels and your glad rags

One of my absolute favourite haunts in London. If you haven't been to Sketch - then you may have still heard of it… with their pod egg toilets, the dreamiest pink restaurant, forest inspired bar and an eclectic parlour to eat sweet treats and sip on tea.

A famous champagne bar in Soho which has been around since 1867 full of rich history. Kettners has been on my to-do list for quiet some time and I'm hoping in the next couple of months to pay a visit for myself.

'Kettner’s has lived, surviving four kings and a queen, the blitz, several booms and more than a few busts, Kettner’s has seen it all and is an integral part of the vibrant, glamorous and debauched Soho we know and love today.'

A new and already popular venue, described as a step back into 1940s era. The bar is the old tube station of Kingsly Court, the funnest commute you will ever take. Complete with staff dressed up and acting in character, as well as a vast array of delicious cocktails. Matt and I went last week and I couldn't agree more with the rave reviews it's been getting.

Press for Champagne… is there three better words? 

A completely decadent restaurant and bar, a place Jay Gatsby wouldn't look out of place at. Your eyes won't be disappointed with the amazing decoration on offer. If you eat only one thing at BOB BOB then it has to be one of the fancy desserts, I had the Eton Mess bomb when I went and not only did it look great but also tasted divine and made this girls tummy very happy. 

Kensington Roof Gardens

Not only is Made in Chelsea a completely unmissable guilty pleasure of mine, but it is always a great inspiration for finding great new places to visit in London. I was aware of the roof gardens before they showed it on MIC but after seeing them cavorting with flamingos and in tropical settings (all this in the heart of london) then it had to be added to my list!

At the heart of Liverpool street is Heron Tower and at the very top is the famous Duck and Waffle. My friend booked her birthday brunch here last weekend and I had a delightful waffle with caramelised bananas, homemade nutella (nutella still wins though) and ice cream. The views are spectacular and the decor as you arrive is a treat for the eyes.

I've visited all these places bar Kensington Roof Gardens and Kettners, they aren't the cheapest of places but whether your budget is smaller or can afford that extra bellini then any savvy lady or gent can work it, such as; stick to the table water and go for the main (Duck and Waffle: £10 waffle and table water) have some sides and that drink you've been eyeing up instead (Bob Bob Ricard; French fries, desert and the all important press for champagne moment) I would love to know any recommendations anyone else might have so they can be added to my future visit lists.
