This year we decided to celebrate Riz’s birthday over a celebratory dinner at Sketch Gallery, and we were joined by our friend Viktoria who was visiting from Helsinki, Finland.
The restaurant is a chic and hip contemporary brasserie, the atmosphere was charming, service was excellent and the food delicious. They also made Riz, on request, a little cake for his birthday which was a really nice touch and helped make the evening even more special. One of most exciting features of this restaurant for me was the striking and playful interiors – the dusky pink walls filled with David Shirley’s artwork, the bourgeois style furniture, and the eclectic feeling of the room.
British artist, David Shrigley’s works, all 239 of them, line the gallery walls at Sketch.
Architect and interior designer India Mahdavi created the calming, monochromatic interiors at Sketch.
Artist Martin Creed was commissioned to redesign the gallery floor in 2012 and he used 96 types of marble to do it.

We had a wonderful evening, the only one grumpy was the butter 🙂
Oh and one more thing… the bathrooms are egg-cellent! Like a futuristic collection of dinosaur eggs in neon lights.
