I could write reviews for each of the different spaces within Sketch and they would increase in excitement as I do! The Parlour is a fabulous space just off the hop-scotch entrance hall (to the right as you enter the building through a pretty -nondescript door on Conduit St). From arriving you will be wow'd by the fabulously quirky interiors which most definitely accompany the great selection of food, teas, afternoon teas and cocktails.
It doesn't have to be a big treat if you don't want to spend a fortune - the afternoon tea is similar prices to all others in London, however the range of cakes and sandwiches is not! There's a real mix of the quintessentially british classics of scones and jam mixed with the wonderful chocolate mousse dome (I forget the names as they're always so wonderfully mystery-inducing!) however the taste and quality is second to none.
There's a massive range of teas and coffees available to accompany the afternoon tea or Lunch, plus a brilliantly London-ised range of cocktails and bubbles if you're fancying a treat!
Don't even get me started on the bathrooms..... it's honestly worth going just for the experience of seeing the toilets!
Sketch is most definitely a MUST for any locals, visitors or special occasions.... get yourself down there and you will not be disappointed!
I've been here a few times and I always have a brilliant time. It's so unique - very cool, but cosy as well. The drinks are varied and delicious and the staff are really friendly - always willing to give you some history of the venue and show you round. I love coming here
just had tea here. such a pleasure. just off crazy busy oxford circus is sketch; we went into the parlour and what a fabulous room; quirky, inviting and fun... (bit uncomfy initially perched on a stool, but soon got sorted). the server - showna - was so lovely and changed our table. the cakes are amazing. had a cocktail too... yes very good all round.
