The 20 most beautiful bars in London

Sexy Fish

While the name sounds like the kind of curious juxtaposition the Surrealists would make up, owner Richard Caring was adamant that his next restaurant would be called Sexy Fish.

Chided at first, the name stuck, and the glitzy venue in Berkeley Square has quickly been catapulted to fame, overtaking the Chiltern Firehouse as the celebrity spot du jour.

From the marble floor to the burnt orange leather booths, interiors are opulent and lavish. A turquoise mermaid designed by Damien Hirst languidly keeps watch at one end of the bar, while a giant crocodile crafted by Frank Gehry crawls along one of the walls.

In the private dining room you’ll find a pair of giant coral reef fish tanks complete with tropical fish in vivid hues like canary yellow and electric blue.

It’s straight out of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet when the star-crossed lovers meet at the Capulet knees-up. The look was created by Martin Brudnizki, who also worked his magic on the recent refurb of The Ivy.
