London Fashion Week: What’s On

Folie

Folie

Yann Deret

The recently opened Folie on Soho’s Golden Square is one of Victoria Beckham’s favourite restaurants in Europe – so of course it’s ultra-chic. Interiors come courtesy of Studio KO, the Parisian agency behind Chiltern Firehouse, with the design intended to evoke the glamour of the French Riviera in the 70s, alongside a stylish Mediterranean menu to match. Check out our full review here37 Golden Square, Soho, London W1F 9LB

Sexy Fish

Sexy Fish Bar

One of London’s most fashionable haunts year-round, during London Fashion Week the restaurant and bar are always packed to the brim with the stylish crowd. The Frank Gehry and Damien Hirst installations add a big dose of glitz, and the Asian fusion menu provides delicious fuel for the party that goes on until late. Berkeley Square House, London W1J 6BR

Neptune

Neptune Dining Room

With its seafood-focused menu, Neptune is the perfect place for a refreshing lunch and drink in between the shows. If you’re with your fashion team, order and share the signature seafood platter, complete with langoustines, oysters, sea trout tartare and crayfish. Cnr of Guilford Street and, Russell Square, London WC1B 5BE

The Wolseley

The Wolseley Exterior Nick Ingram

A firm favourite amongst London’s culture and fashion lot, and always great for celebrity spotting. The best place to go for breakfast before hopping in a taxi to the first shows of the day – if you can get a table. 160 Piccadilly, London W1J 9EB

Annabel's

Private members’ club Annabel’s is as fashionable as ever post-refurb, and a known favourite of the Vogue lot. Will you be lucky enough to get an afterparty invite? 44 Berkeley Square, London W1J 5QB 

Nobu Hotel Shoreditch

Nobu Shoreditch Sushi

Ever buzzy Shoreditch is home to one of London’s chicest hotels, which has been the go-to home-from-home for the fashion crowd. The inimitable Nobu restaurant within is a haven of Japanese cool featuring iconic dishes and swanky cocktails with an East London twist. 10-50 Willow St, London EC2A 4BH

The Dukes Bar

Dukes Hotel

Everyone who’s anyone knows that the best martinis in town (and possibly the world) are served by Alessandro Palazzi at the Dukes in St James’. Beware: they’re devilishly strong. 35 St. James’s Place, London SW1A 1NY

Floral by LIMA

Floral by Lima

Peruvian cuisine is loved for its freshness, flavour and colour – and the fact that it’s surprisingly healthy! Expect to find the ‘in crowd’ hanging out at this fabulous restaurant filled with inspiring prints and texture between shows. 14 Garrick St, London WC2E 9BJ

Harry's Dolce Vita Interior

The latest restaurant from the Caprice group, Harry’s La Dolce Vita is impossibly glamorous and is located opposite Harrods, making it an essential stop for high-end designer shoppers. Order anything with truffle27-31 Basil Street, London SW3 1BB

Farmacy

Farmacy Interior

Keeping healthy is vital during Fashion Week – and can prove difficult with all the backstage champagne and post-show parties – so refuel at Farmacy in Notting Hill, the hippest vegan restaurant in London. There’s even a wicked CBD oil-infused cocktail that’s great for relaxing after a long day of back-to-back shows. 74 Westbourne Grove, London W2 5SH

Quaglino’s

Quaglino's Restaurant Interior by night

This venue off Piccadilly still exudes old-school glamour with a hint of the OTT, with its iconic central bar, overflowing flutes of champagne and regularly scheduled live jazz. The go-to spot for the more mature fashion insiders, who affectionately refer to it as ‘Quags’. 16 Bury Street, London SW1Y 6AJ

Greyhound Café

Greyhound Cafe Interior

With its brilliant street food, buzzy atmosphere and cool interiors, this Thai-fusion restaurant attracts an international crowd who are in town for the shows. Expect to see big foreign department store buyers sharing a few DIY ‘Complicated Noodle’ dishes with their top clients. 37 Berners Street, London W1T 3LZ

Chiltern Firehouse

Chiltern Firehouse

The constant stream of black taxis and chauffeur-driven Bentleys on Chiltern Street are evidence of London’s big names within the walls of now-legendary Chiltern Firehouse. Enjoy food from Michelin-starred chef Nuno Mendes, especially the crab doughnuts (which we have the recipe for here). 1 Chiltern Street, London W1U 7PA
