Sessions Arts Club is London’s hottest and most beautiful restaurant right now – and even featured in a recent episode of Killing Eve. The Grade II listed building, which was once a judges’ dining room, has a mezzanine restaurant led by chef Florence Knight, a bar and rooftop terrace with its own infinity swimming pool. Even the toilets here are pretty special.

The famous gallery room at Mayfair institution Sketch has been transformed from millennial pink to gold as part of a grand redesign by British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare and features all new African artwork and interiors, right down to the crockery. Much of the food remains the same so you’ll still be able to book afternoon tea and dinner, but a new west African dish has been added to the menu, Yinka Rice.
