Sketch in Mayfair is a bit like Pat Sharp’s Fun House – it’s a vast building which houses a whole host of different bars and dining rooms. There’s The Gallery – a lively gastro brasserie, The Parlour – a dazzling tea room, The East Bar – a secret and intimate cocktail room, The Glade – a chilled and relaxed bar and a collection of pod toilets which is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before (see below).

Sketch, at least least the restaurant, it actually 5 minute restaurants all housed in the same building. All entertaining very different styles and decor. From breakfast cafe to fine dining.It was the latter where my obviously exquisite tastes would lead me. Actually, that is a lie.
