Around Town: sketch – London, England

Tea E

When in London, one must enjoy afternoon tea. For a very unique (and pink!) experience, try sketch. From the moment you walk into the converted 18th century building, you won’t feel like you’re in London anymore. As you walk through the space, you’ll notice gadgets and art and rooms drastically varying in design.

The room for afternoon tea is the pinkest room you’ll ever see. With pink walls, pink chairs, and framed sketches covering the walls, the entire room glows pink. Even the tea I ordered was pink (though it was a rose tea). All of the dishware have words printed on them, such as ‘Ghost,’ ‘Food,’ ‘It’s Not Okay,’ and ‘Forget About It.’ Even the napkins have phone numbers printed across them. It’s a cute detail that grabs people’s attentions.

At the end of the meal I ventured up to the restroom to take a look at the space. Multi-colored lights covered the ceiling and each ‘stall’ was a round egg. People were mainly up there just taking photos instead of actually using the bathroom, which was even more bizarre.

As you leave the pink room, you’ll see this gorgeous Alice-in-Wonderland-esque garden room. Another great setting for lunch and conversation.

Tea D

Afternoon tea at sketch is a fun way to spend an hour or two, especially with a group of friends or for a celebration. Dress up in your favorite pink outfit and enjoy fresh tea, champagne, and an assortment of delicious sandwiches, desserts, and scones.

  1. Oh wow! This looks exciting! I think I’m going to pencil this into my ‘To Visit’ list once I get to the UK! 😀

  2. I’m visiting London at the end of this month and this has been on my to-do list! It looks so gorgeous and dreamy. Is the price for a full afternoon tea worth it? I was thinking of just going for some a la carte tea & treats.

  3. Completely in loved with the gorgeous Alice-in-Wonderland-esque garden. I’ll definitely put this place in my adventures list for my next trip to London. Thanks for sharing.
