The Parlour at Sketch
This tea room and bar occupies the prime ground-floor space at Sketch, an exotic and beautiful venue in a Mayfair townhouse. There are two restaurants, yet I always return to the Parlour, a quirky room that progresses through the day from breakfast through afternoon tea to cocktails. The decor changes constantly because co-owner Mourad Mazouz never allows his creativity to sit down and take a rest.
Signature drink: Lovely Bubbly (15 pounds).
