Here are 14 places to visit in London when you’re feeling pretty in pink. You can thank us later…
Millennials made a great choice claiming pink as their own. It will never go out of fashion and one could even say that pink is the new black (sorry Netflix). So if you want to dedicate some time to celebrating this wonderful colour, you’re in the right place. We’ve tracked down the pinkest places in London for you to enjoy. From cafes and bars to bathrooms and nail salons, this list has it all.
1. Saint Aymes, Hyde Park
Perhaps the most Instagrammable coffee shop in London, Saint Aymes has coordinated its decor with its menu, creating a wonderful world of pinks, purples and pastels. They offer a wide variety of sweet and savoury treats, as well as signature beverages that are each crowned with 24ct of edible gold. Here, every hour is golden hour! And if their menu doesn’t entice you enough, the flower wall that is 50 shades of pink definitely will.
59 Connaught Street, St George’s Fields, W2 2BB
2. The Gallery at sketch, Mayfair
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? There are several sights to behold in this extravagant Mayfair venue, including their futuristic egg pod loos. The Gallery, however, is where you’ll want to spend the majority of your time – it is lavish, elegant and very, very pink. Sketch is also continuing the Eat Out To Help Out scheme throughout September, so make the most of the discount while you still can!
9 Conduit St, Mayfair, near Bond Street station, W1S 2XG
3. Franks Cafe, Peckham
If you’re looking for a huge splash of millennial fuchsia as the backdrop to your latest profile pic, Franks Cafe is the place to go. This rooftop bar serves delicious Mediterranean-influenced small plates and plenty of negronis, not to mention it has the most spectacular views of the city. Plus, their perfectly pink staircase is the place to be if you want to elevate your social media game.
10th Floor, Peckham Multi Story Carpark, 95A Rye Lane, SE15 4ST
4. EL&N, various London locations
EL&N may actually be the pinkest venue in London. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s another pink unicorn waiting around the corner. It is home to flower walls, neon signs and food that is somehow just as vibrant as the decor. And if you’re in need of a little pick me up and some eye candy, the ‘Love Hearts’ cave inside the Hans Crescent branch has inspirational messages such as ‘Yolo’ and ‘Thank You, Next’. This pink paradise serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, cake and coffees for you to tuck into in their pink wonderland.
9-10 Market Place, Oxford Circus W1W 8AQ / Unit 32-33, St Pancras Station, N1C 4QP / 239 Brompton Road, South Kensington, SW3 2EP / 48 Park Lane, Mayfair, W1K 1PR / 4th Floor Selfridges, 400 Oxford Street, W1A 1AB / 42 Hans Crescent, Knightsbridge, SW1X 0LZ / 25G Lowndes Street, Belgravia, SQ1Z 9JF
5. Pottery Lane, Notting Hill
At the intersection of Pottery Lane and Penzance Place in Notting Hill, you will come across the most picturesque building there ever was. It really puts all other buildings to shame. This three-story, triangular building feels like it stepped straight out of a fairytale and naturally, it attracts a lot of attention from passers by. You may have to get in line for the perfect photo op, but it’ll be worth the wait.
Pottery Lane/Penzance Place, Notting Hill, W11
6. Nail’d It Nail Salon, various London locations
Nail’d it has been deemed ‘the most Instagrammable nail salon’, and rightly so. The soft pink pastels, flower displays and rosy armchairs are the perfect backdrop for any nail treatment (or selfie). When it comes to your pamper session, you’ll be in great hands as they’ve hired only the best nail technicians. And look out for their British telephone boxes – they’re covered in flowers, extraordinarily pink and are of course, perfect for the ‘gram.

7. Tonight Josephine, Waterloo
Tonight Josephine is overwhelmingly pink in the best possible way! You’ll be inundated with neon signs, hot pink decor and all the glitz and glamour you could ever wish for. Their cocktails are equally as impressive and taste just as good as they look. If that’s not enough, they also host a Mean Girls themed afternoon tea which is so fetch, no matter what Regina George has to say about it.
111 Waterloo Road, Lambeth, SE1 8UL
8. Annabel’s, Mayfair
Before you get your hopes up, Annabel’s is a private members club and while it is absolutely gorgeous, it’s not the easiest to enter. If you’re one of the lucky ones that can see it in person, the luminous pink bar is quite the attention-grabber. The star of the show however, is the ladies powder room! This bathroom is decked out with rose quartz, marble and the most elegant pink floral arrangements you ever did see.
46 Berkeley Square, Mayfair, W1J 5AT
9. Brassiere Of Light, Fitzrovia
You guessed it, it’s another bathroom! Don’t you just hate it when you’re mid-shop on Oxford Street and you realise you haven’t taken a photo to document your day? If that’s the case, head to Selfridges where you will find Brassiere of Light and then make a beeline for the bathroom. Strange orders, I know, but you won’t want to miss this. This bathroom is a rose gold, marbled haven with perfectly positioned mirrors and lighting. And if you get hungry during your photoshoot, their restaurant serves the most incredible dishes from around the world.
Selfridges, Duke Street Entrance, 400 Oxford Street, W1A 1AB
10. Mariage Fréres, Covent Garden
If you want to sip some tea, why not do so in one of the most aesthetically pleasing tea parlours in London. Mariage Fréres offers the largest tea collection in the world, with 1,000 varieties from 36 different countries! During your visit be sure to find their tea rooms where teapots are stored in bright pink, luminous cases and the aroma of tea fills the air. Take it from me, their luxury collection beats PG tips any day.
38 King Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 8JS
11. Peggy Porschen, Belgravia
Peggy Porschen is the talk of the town for a number reasons. One of them is that it’s pretty in pink and another, is that it’s the Instagram opportunity of dreams. At this cute bakery you’ll have the option to venture outside for some seriously enviable exteriors or purchase one of their legendary cupcakes and stencilled frothy lattes for a pic that will be the envy of all.
116 Ebury St, Belgravia, SW1W 9QQ
12. Lancaster Road, Notting Hill
If you’ve ever wondered what Barbie’s dream house would look like in real life, we’ve got you covered. This road is notorious for its rainbow coloured houses with pastel hues and somewhere along your journey you will come across the pinkest house to grace the earth. Notting Hill’s Lancaster Road is undoubtedly one of the prettiest streets in London, so expect to walk past several houses you’ll want to move into immediately – you’ve been warned.

13. DYCE Dessert Parlour, Marylebone
This Marylebone dessert parlour will catch your eye before you’ve even entered. With multiple shades of pink weaved throughout the venue and mirrors dangling from the ceiling, you’ll have plenty to feast your eyes on. And fortunately the desserts at DYCE are just as photogenic as the parlour, making our lives (aka Instagram duties) that little bit easier. Anyone with a sweet tooth will be thanking their lucky stars after seeing their spectacular array of brownies, cookies and donuts!
27 James Street, Marylebone, W1U 1DX
14. Palm Vaults, Hackney
Palm Vaults is easily the cutest cafe in east London, and you’d be a fool not to go. Think healthy dragon fruit smoothie bowls, rose lattes and lots and lots of baked goods (many of which are pink, by the way). This pink sanctuary is where to go if you’re after great food, beautiful surroundings and the most calming atmosphere.
