The 20 most beautiful bars in London


It’s easy to see why Isabel in Mayfair scooped this year’s Restaurant Design of the Year award. The South American small plates venue was designed by owner Juan Santa Cruz, a Chilean investment banker turned restaurateur who leans on the Art Deco design aesthetic.

Isabel has a gentleman’s club vibe with its abundance of varnished wood, with Santa Cruz taking inspiration from the ocean liners of the 1930s.

The decadence is ramped up with woven silks, Macassar wood, Chinoiserie detailing and flashes of gold along the bar and ceiling, where 300 polished brass lamps hover – a deliberate design quirk to give diners’ skin a golden glow.

The mirrored ebony bar, where white jacketed mixologists shake up Martinis, is anchored by a quartet of trees. Be sure to look out for the hand-painted flamingo wallpaper in the loos.
