From glamorous cocktail bars to Instagram-famous restaurants, Mayfair is awash with go-to spots for the fashion crowd to gather.

Pasticceria Marchesi 1824

Follow the fashion crowd to Pasticceria Marchesi 1824, owned by luxury Italian fashion house Prada. Find patisserie galore at this plush pastry shop on elegant Mount Street, the only London outpost of one of Milan’s oldest and finest pastry shops. Renowned for its patisserie, signature chocolates and classic Panettone, this is the place to go for a sweet treat in plush surrounds. 

The Red Room at The Connaught

See and be seen at the art-filled Red Room, which is tucked behind a velvet-curtained doorway of the The Connaught hotel's Champagne Room. The bar showcases a collection of red-coloured artworks by female artists, including I Am Rouge by Louise Bourgeois and a photographic piece by Trina McKillen. The striking design-led interior includes a pink onyx bar and a red-flecked marble fireplace. 

Mercato Mayfair

Dine out in style at Mercato Mayfair, an Italian food hall housed within a deconsecrated church. Located in Mayfair's foodie quarter North Audley Street, Mercato Mayfair can be found near Selfridges and Bond Street station on the Elizabeth line. Tucked inside a beautifully preserved grade I listed building, the plant-filled food hall is an Instagrammer’s dream thanks to its huge stained-glass windows, atmospheric crypts, soaring columns and grand archways. This hidden gem food hall houses two floors of worldwide cuisine, along with a tranquil rooftop terrace, wine cellar and community space. Serving up everything from dim sum to homemade pasta, all dishes are created using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. 


Bacchanalia is a hit with the fashion crowd thanks to its showstopping interiors and flamboyant food. Curated by Caprice Holdings’ chairman Richard Caring, the epic restaurant’s spectacular dining room features four Damien Hirst statues, hand-painted ceiling murals and 2000-year-old Greek and Roman artworks. Taking centre stage is Gary Myatt’s floor-to-ceiling interpretation of Romans In Their Decadence, so there’s plenty to fill your Instagram feed.
