So it turns out pink is the colour of millenials (because apparently that’s something that someone put actual time into discovering)…
…and we’ve tracked down the pinkest spots in the capital for your pleasure (or rather your next Instagram backdrop).
1. Roksanda, Mayfair
This Mayfair store not only houses some beautiful clothes that will surely make you want to update your wardrobe, but it also houses them in some rather pretty surroundings.
9 Mount St, Mayfair, near Green Park station, W1K 3NG.
2. Peggy Porschen, Belgravia
This cute pink bakery is the Instagram opportunity of dreams. Go outside for some seriously enviable exteriors or purchase one of their cupcakes and stencilled frothy lattes for a flatlay that all your followers will envy.
116 Ebury St, Belgravia, near Sloane Square station, SW1W 9QQ.
3. The Gallery, sketch
We’ve all seen it grace our social media feeds and for very good reason – who wouldn’t want to dine in a pink velvet heaven? Designed by India Mahdavi, this Gallery is adorned with prints and pastel hues galore.
9 Conduit St, Mayfair, near Bond Street station, W1S 2XG.
4. The Lanesborough, Belgravia
With views of Buckingham Palace Gardens and regal furnishings everywhere you turn, it would be easy to mistake yourself for royalty in this place. Ultimately, we’re pushing you to book one of their pink furnished suites, but if money’s not on your side (join the club), then we’d say sneak in just to get a look at the lobby.
Hyde Park Corner, Belgravia, near Knightsbridge station, SW1X 7TA
5. Café Miami, Hackney
This place isn’t quite as pink as the others in this list, but it had to be mentioned. The tables are pink, the popcorn baskets are pink and hell, even the plates are pink. So basically, it’s pretty darn pink.
24 Lower Clapton Rd, near Hackney Central station, E5 0PD.
6. Red Valentino, Sloane Street
Designed by the same genius woman behind Sketch’s infamous pink room, we can see why RED Valentino chose her to design their first London boutique. We’d recommend going in for a cheeky look, picking your jaw up from the ground at how darn pretty this showroom is, making a swift exit, and feeling a hell of a lot poorer than when you entered.
133 Sloane Street, Chelsea, near Sloane Square station, SW1X 9AX
7. Harmood Street, Camden
Undoubtedly one of the prettiest streets in London, expect to walk past lots of houses you would love to live in and spend a lifetime wishing you could. Lots of pretty pastel hues but, of course, there has to be one brightly coloured Barbie house. Here’s to wondering if the interiors are as fabulously decorated as the outside of it…
8. The Ritz London
Yes, we’re essentially telling you to go and visit a bathroom but when it’s as beautiful as this, you can’t blame us. Obviously you should go and get a fancy afternoon tea or something, but if you do manage to save up enough pennies to go, definitely make your way to the female bathroom for some serious pink pleasure.
150 Piccadilly, St. James’s, near Green Park station, W1J 9BR
9. Frank’s Cafe, Peckham
If you’re looking for a huge splash of millennial fuschia as the backdrop to your latest profile pic, then you’ve found the place. A trendy staircase to a trendy rooftop bar… how, er, trendy?
10th Floor, Peckham Multi Story Carpark, 95A Rye Lane, near Peckham Rye station, SE15 4ST
10. Palm Vaults, Hackney
The cutest and most Instagrammable café in east London right now and you’d be a fool not to go. Think healthy dragon fruit smoothie bowls and rose lattes for that ultimate rosey flat-lay.
411 Mare Street, near Hackney Central station, E8 1HY.
11. Dandelyan, The Mondrian
Just awarded the coveted title of World’s Best Cocktail Bar and it’s pretty damn easy to see why. Beautiful pink interiors and bubblegum coloured cocktails are just some of the rosy additions you could add onto your trip to The Mondrian’s award-winning bar.
20 Upper Ground, near Blackfriars station, SE1 9PD
12. Bronte, The Strand
This elegant all-day dining venue and bar offers everything from bao buns to weekend brunches and lots of cocktails in between. Grab a drink at their beautiful bar or dine in The Restaurant and relax in plush pink velvet seats.
Bronte, Grand Buildings, 1-3 Strand, near Charing Cross station, WC2N 5EH
