When you find out there's an all-pink room in London called Sketch, you do everything in your power to go. I'm not even joking, I probably told every person I came across about it. And when Mike and I got there it definitely didn't disappoint. Just look at it - have you seen anything like it?! From the second we walked in I was giddy like a kid in a candy store. Every inch of the room was literally perfectly designed from the chevron floor… to the pale pink puffy velvet couches/chairs…the shimmery copper bar…pale pink walls with dim lighting…pale pink receipts, etc.
When we initially walked into Sketch, the hostess greeted us and said we can take a look at the various rooms and pick which we'd like to take our drinks in. We popped in the first room (Mike like this room) but it wasn't pink so was a no-go in my book. Then headed into another room...as we got closer I saw pink pouring out of the doors (jackpot!). Then beyond the pink room, there was another sketchy circular bar, with the wash room above it (all pictured below). Clearly we made our way back to the pink room and started speaking with the bartender to get some background on this sketchy place (no pun intended).
This pale pink room is called the Gallery because it changes every 2 years. Yes, you read that right, it will only be pale pink for another year and a half so get your tush there ASAP! They close the room for about one month during renovations and bring in an amazing artist to literally re-design everything. And by everything, I'm talking about the wait staff uniforms, bar, walls, art work, menu, floor, envelope you get the check in…literally everything (only the cocktail napkins stay the same..pictured). The brains and vision behind this pretty in pink room was by internationally celebrated artist David Shrigley.
Regardless of the pink room, If you're in London you need to stop in Sketch for afternoon tea, dinner or drinks (tip: you must make a reservation for tea or dinning). The various designed rooms and wash room is seriously something out of this world. (PS - Apologies for any low quality photos - all photos were taken with an iPhone 6)
