London’s 10 Most Instagrammed Restaurants
There are those places you just have to go. Not necessarily for the food, or the service but because you must get a picture. Yes, it’s tragic. Our generation is ever-so-slightly narcissistic and is of the belief that unless you Instagram, people will never know you were there. But how great is it to look back on some of those photos and say “daaaamn, that was a great afternoon.” Some of these places are known for their artistic surroundings, or their innovative food presentation, or even for their bizarre bathrooms. Here is a list of London’s 10 most Instagrammed restaurants:
Possibly the MOST Instagrammed place in London, this Mayfair dining emporium is located on Conduit Street. It was conceived by the Momo restaurateur Mourad Mazouz and made up of a number of uniquely decorated spaces, each with a different theme. Aside from snapping the delightful scalloped blush-pink banquettes and candyfloss wall, patrons often make their way up the futuristic staircase to the bathroom with it’s collection of ceiling-high pods and multi-coloured lights.
Sky Garden, The City
The glass palace is worth seeing if only for the views of surrounding London. Located in the famous walkie-talkie building, this three storey, exquisitely landscaped public gardens is one of London’s most exclusive social spaces. It includes observation decks and an open air terrace. Sky Garden also houses restaurants Darwin Brasserie, Fenchurch Seafood Bar & Grill and Sky Pod Bar.
Coppa Club, Tower Bridge
One word- igloos. Igloos overlooking the Thames. Although booking quite far in advance is a staple for the London Bar, it is almost impossible not to enjoy the view of the Shard whilst sipping on a Martini.

Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings, Clerkenwell
This trendy joint is like sitting in a well-decorated forrest. It’s known for it’s famous bottomless-brunch, bloody marys and comfortable arm chairs.

Dalloway Terrace, Bloomsbury
Sticking with the Conservatory-theme, the Dalloway Terrace is named after Virginia Wolf. Don’t be afraid though because it’s a restaurant and bar offers the peace and charm of a secluded secret garden in the winter and a light, elegant and beautiful alfresco offering in the spring and summer months.
The Corner Room, Mile End
Based inside the Town Hall Hotel the Corner Room dishes out inventive, quirky and affordable spins on modern British and European cuisine, not to mention selfie galore in front of those dazzling hanging lights.

There are exactly two sittings of early and late afternoon high tea at Claridge’s, set in the hotel’s sensational Chihuly in The Foyer or inside the tucked away, but intimate Reading Room. Four types of bladed sandwiches (salmon, egg, cucumber, chicken), a sensational trio of treats, champagne and extensive tea menu are served, along with fluffy scones. Do not (we repeat) do not, turn down the Marco Polo Jam, and if like us, you’re one of those adventurous types, opt for the ‘Tea Journey’ to try three secret teas, expertly chosen and paired according to your own preferences. Spoiler: you’ll definitely end up buying the exceedingly rich Claridge’s blend – it’s bold, refreshing and without doubt, will make you ‘ahh’ in delight. The deal here is supremely simple: totter in, feast, and roll out of the lobby back onto Brook Street.
Palm Vaults, Shoreditch
Fresh cali vibes, red brick walls and lots and lots of pink. Yes, Palm Vaults is one of London’s most Instagrammable veggie cake dens. Expect oodles of simple, but beautiful cakes, and extremely colourful coffee shots. It’s a hipster’s dream!
The Ivy Chelsea Garden, Chelsea
No matter the season, the Ivy Chelsea Garden manages to steal the show with the most spectacularly bonkers floral facades in the city. For the best interior shots, head directly to the garden terrace and the organgery. Food wise? A classy modern British menu with a refined twist. For the best flower arrangements, wait until the Chelsea Flower Show.
Jeans George at The Connaught, Mayfair
Wondrous views of Mount Street crown a light and airy art deco dining room which dishes out French, British and Asian-inspired dishes from one of London’s hottest chefs, Jean-Georges. And there’s a truffle pizza you can box and take home, too.
So what are you waiting for? Get snapping! #IfIDon’tInstagramDidItReallyHappen?
