Aqua Kyoto is a high-end Japanese restaurant and terrace bar behind Regent Street serving some quality sushi.
Decimo is a loud and proud Mexican-inspired spot on the tenth floor of The Standard in King’s Cross.
Circolo Popolare is a big, glitzy, and daft Italian trattoria in Fitzrovia that’s made for booze, big groups, and maybe some food.
Gloria is the restaurant equivalent to a night that ends with a broken Louboutin. It’s daft, it’s delicious, and it’s downright fun.

Kym’s is a lively and modern Chinese restaurant on Bloomberg Arcade in the City, specialising in small plates and meats.
Park Chinois is a very entertaining upmarket spot in Mayfair serving very average and very expensive food.

Paradise by Way of Kensal Green is a pub-cum-bar-cum-restaurant in Kensal Green with a nice outdoor patio.
Hovarda is a stunning Aegean (Greek / Turkish) restaurant in Soho with a good party vibe and very expensive OK tasting food.

Just off Regent Street, the roof terrace at Aqua is a little bit sceney, a lot expensive, but very convenient.
A pretty rooftop bar, Madison is still one of London’s Instagram rooftop brags of choice.
After a new kit out, the Oxo Tower bar on the South Bank is prettier than ever, with panoramic views of St Paul’s and the Thames.
