There are usually several boxes that need to be ticked when looking for a private dining room, whether it be for hosting a brand launch, birthday dinner or work drinks. Somewhere with style and ambience, great food and an occasion-worthy drinks list, as well as an accessible location is all a must for private dining - and we think you'll find that and more in Sticks 'n' Sushi Shoreditch.
We're sure you've heard of the brand before, which for nearly 30 years has been bringing high quality sushi to diners across Europe, as well as its signature brand of Japanese and Danish-inspired decor. The brand's most recent opening is in one of London's hippest neighbourhoods, Shoreditch, where it's landed a great location on Shoreditch High Street - meaning easy transport links for you and your guests.
Inside, the vibe is just as you'd expect - effortlessly chic with calming, neutral tones, minimalist furniture and atmospheric lighting. Some stand-out design moments include the central bar and the lighting installations, which are amber-hued.
In terms of planning your event, the restaurant boasts a semi-private dining area which benefits from the buzz of the other diners, while giving you and your friends your own space. The open kitchen adds to the experience and shows off the creativity of the chefs, which you will, of course, see up close on your plate. Ordering some House Maki is a must, and we like the sound of the Wagyu Maki with wagyu tartare, kizami wasabi and spring onion, as well as the Kaburimaki rolls, like the Hell's Kitchen with tempura shrimp, avocado and spicy sauce topped with tuna and barbecue sauce.
