If you’re in the capital this weekend for London Fashion Week and are looking for a local hotspot, this is the perfect guide for you.
Possibly the most stylish dining destination in London right now, Bronte Restaurant, designed by Tom Dixon, is an old converted hotel just a stone’s throw from Soho. Once inside, you’ll find accents of pink concrete and green leather along with plenty of foliage and contemporary design features. Indulge in some Spanish-inspired small-plate dining to start; we recommend trying the prawn ceviche or salt-baked celeriac before indulging in something delicious from the grill, like the lamb rump.

You’re going to need a tipple (or two), so head to Green Bar at Hotel Café Royal – it’s a contemporary cocktail bar on the edge of Piccadilly Circus that specialises in plants and tonics. Expect to drink delicious gin-based concoctions while snacking on salt and pepper squid and parma ham croquettes.

Pastries have never been so stylish! Prêt-à-Portea offers the most fashionable high tea in town, served on uber-chic chinaware designed by Paul Smith – all in the elegant art deco backdrop of the The Berkeley Hotel. If SS17’s menu saw us nibble on a Valentino handbag cake and Jimmy Choo-shaped cookies, we can only imagine how delicious AW17 will be.
