Sexy Fish, Pharmacy 2, and Philippe Parreno: Julien Macdonald’s London

By Whitewaller

October 6, 2016

For Whitewaller‘s inaugural London&Paris issue, out for Frieze London 2016, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things London—that shared with us how to navigate the city during the art fair. Next up, we have designer Julien Macdonald who shares his top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.

WHERE TO EAT
I love to eat at Sexy Fish in Mayfair. They serve the most incredible seafood on small sharing plates, making it a very social and fun experience. The setting is stunning with amazing artworks from the likes of Damien Hirst to Frank Gehry, who created the large fish at the bar.

WHERE TO SIP
Sushi Samba is fantastic. The cocktails are delicious and the 360-degree views of London are breathtaking. The Chiltern Firehouse and The Punchbowl also never disappoint.

WHERE TO SEE ART
I think what Damien Hirst has done at the Pharmacy 2 restaurant is a really interesting concept—combining his passion for art and food.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN
Dancing is always on the top of my list. I think Hackney is really up-and-coming and there are always new and exciting venues opening in the area. Recently, I’ve tried the Looking Glass Cocktail Club and Visions Video Bar.

WHERE TO RELAX
It’s easy to get caught up in the busy London lifestyle, so I love to go and unwind at The Ivy Chelsea Garden. It’s the perfect place to catch up with friends.

TOP SHOW TO SEE DURING FRIEZE
I’m looking forward to seeing Philippe Parreno at the Tate Modern.
