There's room for 20 guests seated or 35 for a standing reception and signature dishes include king crab, Wagyu beef, grilled lobster and oysters served by the bucket load: natural, tempura or dressed. Get stuck into the cocktails then enjoy dinner with pairing wines.

Sexy Fish

This bad boy's not only got Damien Hirst mermaids and Frank Gehry fishlamps, but two of the largest coral reef tanks in the world. It's also from the masterful team behind The Ivy, so you know it's gonna be epic. If you and 47 of your mates book The Coral Reef Room, you'll not only get to sit next to those massive tanks, but you'll get your own private bar, some of the freshest sashimi in town and access to the 3rd largest whisky collection in the world. BarChick'll be there until taxi time.

House of Ho Fitzrovia

Being the flagship, this place (of epic proportions) is more upmarket than their older outposts: think marble tables, French-colonial fittings, open kitchens and people who are willing to shell out £40 for a main. Don’t let that put you off though ‘cos they’ve got snacks, dim sum, small plates and bottles of wine that’ll give even the penny pinchers a full belly and a winey haze. If you're rolling with a crew, book one of the private dining rooms upstairs (Hanoi, Mirror Room and Ho Chi Minh) and do Vietnamese properly.

Canto Corvino
Flora and fauna illustrations, exposed brick, wicked wine and succulent meat from a Josper is what you can expect from this new venture from the owners of Manicomio. The basement is where you'll find their private room of wine cages and moody lighting. Find 23 carnivores and get involved. BarChick is a sucker for their blood sausage gnudi, which is a total bucket list cert. 21 Artillery Lane, Spitalfields, London E1 7HA corvino2   Smith & Wollensky 3 smart private dining rooms are in this American steakhouse transplant and all will make you feel like you're a f*cking hero or in a Scorcese film. Opt for The Theodore Roosevelt room (for 50 people) for a private bar and barman or the Liberty (for 25 people) or Churchill (for 28 people) rooms for more of an intimate setting. If you're absolutely minted, book 1 or 2 floors for private hire and go wild. Gilt mirrors, globe lightbulbs and mint green hues will be background to your Porterhouse steak gorging. The Adelphi, 1-11 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6HT wollensky   Quo Vadis This is one of BarChick's favourite stained glass windows and pin-striped awning kind of hangouts. If you're looking to dine privately, you can't get much better than this. Everything is impeccable from the food and the drinks to the service. The Marx Room, The Leoni Room, The Snug and The Petting Room are all available for your private happiness.

Blixen

Clive Watson of Riding House Cafe is behind this brasserie, so it's already got a good track record. Think timeless brasserie of the grand cafe tradition with a voguish modern London twist. If you've ever fancied dining on international cuisine in a bank safe, this one's got your name on it.

The Club at The Punchbowl

The Punchbowl has seriously upped its dining game with the swanky new Art Deco restaurant upstairs, but it's the Club hidden above it where BarChick likes to entertain her finest friends. It's like a Victorian art collector’s dream up there; work your way around the room, have a drink with the mysterious faces staring back at you and then settle into a menu of culinary wonders. This is the kind of place you can really get stuck in for long whether it be lunch or dinner; go on and sink into a Chesterfield and make like you're lord of the manor.

Social Wine & Tapas

This is Jason Atherton's latest: an exclusive wine shop and tapas bar in Marylebone with private dining and wining available. On the top floor is the tasting room for, you guessed it, wine (which you're welcome to pair with tapas) and in the basement is a semi-private affair. Book for up to 8 in the former and 10 in the latter. Rare and fine wines have been sourced from all around the world just for you, so what are you waiting for?

Percy & Founders

Arts & Crafts meets Art Deco in Percy's Den where you can conjoin forces with 23 others (if they prefer to be seated) or 34 others (if they're content to stand). There are 12 handmade tables sporting all sorts of primary colours, so feel free to muck around and arrange them in creative configurations before your rabbit terrine is served. There's also a bespoke wood and glass bar, drinks trolley with bar staff at the helm, 60" LED TV and surrealistic/retro-futuristic prints on the walls. This is the sort of place you rouge your lips or put on the skinny tie for.

Le Pont de la Tour 

If you want epic riverside dining, this is the spot for you. BarChick opts for the wine cellar-cum-private dining room, but you can rent space in the main restaurant if vistas of the Thames is what you're after. The wine list is obviously mega and the food menu's up there with it; terrine of duck foie gras, raviolo of lobster, salads of golden beetroots and much more. Group capacity is 10-300 depending on which room/space you fancy.

Big Easy Canary Wharf

Think 19th century shack and Bar.B.Q  joint of the American Gulf Coast meets West India Docks and there you are. Whack on a bib, clutch that cutlery for dear life and get ready to feast on some pulled pork, BBQ and outrageous lobster. Peace out small plates dining. Want more of a pull? There's a Rum Bar moored at all times with over 100 varieties, a killer cocktail menu and rum casks on tap. But you're here for some privacy. Book the Captain's Table dining room for you and 25 of your mates. It'll be epic.

Rules

We love Rules for its liveried doormen, its roaring log fire and the slab of Stilton that comes with your cocktail. As soon as you walk through the door you half expect to see some old literary hound propping up the bar, cigar in hand, but nowadays you're more likely to see BarChick. The John Betjeman Room accommodates 10 and the Grahame Greene Room seats 18. Bring along some T. S. Eliot poetry and measure your life with spoons of spirit.

Chutney Mary

They're the supposed spearheads of the contemporary Indian restaurant, so it's not only worth a visit for its food, but for its status as 'relic' cos it's been around since the 90s. Both the Club Room and the Crystal Room are awash with modern Indian decor; choose the former if you want to accommodate between 18 and 32 people seated (or 60 for a cocktail reception) and choose the latter if you have a smaller group of 10 to 16. Don't leave without trying their Tandoori lobster marinated in lime, ginger and kashmiri chili as it's absolutely killing.

The Rib Room

It’s a bit dated, but it’s a good place for a Knightsbridge pit-stop if you're an old crooner with a troop of nieces in tow. They've got three private dining rooms so take your pick. The first seats 10, the second seats 14 and has its own private smoking terrace (perfect for chainers), and the last seats 20 and has no windows which is perfect for… private affairs. All offer à la carte or set menu.

Coya

The place to go for some good ol' people watching, you might not know that Coya has a banging private dining room for up to 12 guests. Not only are the walls are covered in bright murals by a Brazilian graffiti artist, you get an awesome view straight into the kitchen. They're also serving up George Clooney's small-batch tequila range, Casamigos - only in this room, people. Grab your mates and get your VIP on.

Boisdale - Canary Wharf

Filled to the brim with suits wining and dining their clients, it's old school and it works well. If you really want to go to town then take things up a level to their second floor private dining room, The Gallery Room, which boasts amazing views across the City, capacity for 20 - 40 guests and private dining menus. All rooms are appropriately tartan, crimson and swanky so there's your holiday dining stress sorted and booted.

  The Wolseley The Wolseley is the ultimate restaurant with all its old school charm. The private dining room, which is discreetly placed at the top of a staircase, can seat up to 14 guests and it's impeccable. Breakfast, lunch, dinner? Not to fret: it lends itself to any occasion. Light spills in through the windows by day, and seductively lit candles give glow by night. Hello delicious sultry dining.

The Ivy

This classic has been recently revamped and all heads are turning. Whilst the whole space has had an overhaul, we're most psyched about the private dining room (which seats up to 60) fashioned by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Envision a room of harlequin stained glass, oak panelling, handwoven camouflage carpet and a bespoke bar and there's your very lavish abode for the night. The menu will be whatever suits your personal taste (within reason, that is) and the music will come in the form of a baby grand piano, jazz trio or string quartet. Fancy.

Bocca di Lupo

Italian cooking at its very best: from raw sea bream and slow roast duck to risotto with Prosecco and oysters, they've got it handled. Their private and beautiful Remus Room can seat 12 to 32 for lunch or dinner, so no need to worry about space. Design your own menu or pick one of their Classic or Bocca menus which start at £40; from the first to the last morsel you'll be howling your appreciation.

It has two private dining rooms that seat eight and 14 guests respectively (can be joined to seat 24). Clad in beautiful wood panelling with lots of original paintings on the walls, you'll feel well insulated and intimate.

Pennethorne's Cafe Bar

Portland Full marks from AA Gill and praise from a sizable portion of the BBC's workforce is not what makes Portland epic, but it certainly adds to its mystique. Their private room accommodates parties of 8 to 16 people and whilst the decor isn't super revolutionary in anyway, it's a brilliant and simple backdrop for what you'll be plated up: 5 shared 1st courses, Yorkshire beef, Denham Estate venison, Amalfi lemon curd and the like. 113 Great Portland Street, London W1W 6QQ portlandprivate Manicomio Manicomio's private dining room is where  you go if you want to dress to the nines and not be given to much sh*t about it. Cocktail receptions accommodate 30-60 people, so no need for the anxiety that inevitably arises from having to pick and choose between mates. There’s even a private courtyard in which to schmooze under the sun (fingers crossed) beforehand.

  Hawksmoor, Guildhall Hawksmoor Guildhall is at the steak-beating-heart of city life - it’s always heaving with suited and booted slickers. The decor is sexy (in an Oxford College kinda way) and has its own bar, so you can go hard all night long on Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brews. The private dining room seats up to 22 and their steak is the best in town.

  Zuma The Tosho Table seats up to 10 and has the buzz of the nearby sake bar; and the Kotatsu Room seats up to 14 with sunken tables sectioned off by open timberwork so you still feel part of the action. The food? Japanese izakaya and it delivers the goods; let's hope everyone else matches it.

  Modern Pantry White-washed, high-ceilinged, light-flooded space with simple ornamentation. BarChick loves it for its understated yet elegant decor as much as for its sherry and innovative approach to tapas. The Botanical Room seats up to 24 on a single table or larger groups of up to 40 on smaller tables. The Alphabeta Building, 14 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1AH modernpantry-1   34 – The Emin Room You'll find this private dining room (which is named after artist Tracey Emin) above Mayfair's 34. Expect it to be chock full of her iconic work, from bronzes and tapestries to paintings and neons. So if you're an art lover, this is where to brag about it to your friends with an 18 quid cocktail in hand. Charming. Available for up to 60 guests, set menus boasting modern British cooking start at £49. Even string quartets can be arranged as a nice counterpart to your interactive art and gastro experience. Let the madness begin.

  Bob Bob Ricard This private room has a Champagne button...need we go on? Bob Bob Ricard is the ultimate Russian playground: it's sealed with marble, it’s chock-full of Champagne and caviar is always on the menu. Attire? Fur and diamonds, naturally. The private room seats 14, and there's a minimum spend of £500, but with Champagne just a finger away, this shouldn't be a problem.

  China Tang at The Dorchester Where else can you go to the loo and listen to The Owl and The Pussycat? That's why we love it here. Not to mention the food and cocktails and the fact that it makes you feel like an emperor. Choose from one of their private rooms: Ping, Pang or Pong. They can accommodate 18 – 60 for a sumptuous Cantonese feast.

  Tom's Kitchen Everybody knows Tom Aiken is a damn good cook. If you're planning an evening with a little more gravitas than a meal-deal at Nando’s (not that we don’t love a cheeky Nandos), book one of his private rooms in Chelsea or Canary Wharf. Chelsea can seat up to 40 and Canary Wharf can seat up to 24 suits. Settle in for modern British fare.

  10 Greek Street We dream about their food...especially that burrata. You can only book at lunchtime, so one way to guarantee getting in is to book their private room below the restaurant; it seats 12 and the delicious sharing menu (braised rabbit, chocolate tart, mmm) starts at £40 a head. What about alcohol, you ask? Wine is carefully picked, delicious and reasonable.

Beach Blanket Babylon If you wanna host a dinner where you dress as Marie Antoinette and encourage your guests to wear masks and feed each other seductively, this is the place. Choose from The Ballroom, The Chapel, The Crypt or The Drawing Room, all of which are conducive to debauchery.

  Le Coq BarChick stumbled upon Le Coq in Islington before a football game and had one of the best tasting chicken meals ever. But it was on the way to the loo that she spotted the private dining room and fell in love: it’s all sexy green walls, big oak table and lamps made from chicken egg pails in a glitter ball style alcove. It can fit around 14 mates/colleagues for no minimum spend or hire charge and the menu can be anything from classic rotisserie chicken (do it) to meat or fish. Or go get picky and create a completely bespoke menu with them... trust us, with food this good it will be worth every penny.

Best to do list, like, ever...

68 and Boston - Downstairs is a hot wine bar. Upstairs is one of Soho's best cocktail bars. We're all about the Chorizo Old Fashioneds. Epic. 69 Colebrooke Row - Tony C’s original gangsta, this bar does classic in style. It only seats 35, but they’ve been known to seat even Keira Knightly on the stairs so you’ll be in with a shot ‘cos we’ve got your table sorted. Their legendary edible Bloody Mary that you shoot from an oyster shell… don’t ask, just try it. Z Bar Story - Under the arches of Peckham Rye station this car park/bar/cool hangout has a ridiculous cocktail list scribbled on the board and you can get two for £7 in happy hour. Boom. Bar Termini - The real Italian deal. Swing through aperitif style and stand at the bar for a £1 espresso or a pre-batched Negroni to perk you up before dinner. Beaufort Bar at The Savoy - Possibly the sexiest hotel bar in London which is dripping gold (£40Ks worth if you’re wondering). It’s glamorous - as should you be if you come in here. Do the Savoy double and pop into the American Bar for a booze history lesson whilst you're at it. Black Rock - There's a river of whiskey inside a giant oak tree. SERIOUSLY. This is one of the most epic bars BarChick's ever been to. The Blues Kitchen Shoreditch - If you love live music and wanna party in a private caravan inside a bar, this is your place.  The ribs are some of the best in London, the bourbon selection is banging and you're pretty much guaranteed to pull. Cahoots - It doesn't get more London than drinking in a tube carriage. Book into this once air raid shelter and you'll be transported, literally, to war-torn 1940’s London for some drinking on the ration. Callooh Callay - A bar inside a wardrobe never gets old. Get your Narnia freak on, drink colour changing cocktails and beg for an invite to the Jub Jub. Camden Town Brewery - Piss up in a brewery? Exactly. Cecil's - Chilled cocktails in the week and cabarets, stripping nuns and rumours of sex parties at the weekend. Come with an open mind and your most fun crew. Cellar Door - Drag Queens, snuff and a load of absinthe in an underground toilet by Somerset House... right. The Connaught - 'Cos sometimes you wanna go somewhere insanely beautiful, drink some of the best Martinis in town and play 'spot the hooker'. Cork & Bottle - An old school underground wine haven underneath the mayhem of Leicester Square, it's a sanctuary in these parts. Dandelyan - Never had plant haemoglobin or zedoary root in your cocktail? Now is your time.  The botanical menu’s here are world famous for a reason; they even suggest what time of day you should be drinking them plotted out on a graph. Discount Suit Company - One of the original secret bars, this wicked booze den is worth roaming around deserted Petticoat Lane market for. It's dark, dingy and very discreet, just how we like our bars. Come by on a Saturday night and you might just find us dancing on the tables to Motown. The Dolphin - No one has lived until they’ve woken up with the legendary dolphin stamp on their wrist. Anything goes, they play R Kelly’s Ignition every hour and the drinks are worryingly cheap. Just say yes. Duck & Waffle - 'Cos where else do you go at 4am for Champagne, crispy pigs ears and that epic waffle dish? The view is the best in London and it looks even better when you’re four Nutella Negronis in and the sun’s coming up. 2Q== Duke's - Home to Bond’s Vesper Martini, home to the coolest Martini trolley in town and home to Alessandro.

Sure it's only open May - September but when it is embrace the queue and go soak up awesome London views with a cheap cocktail in hand. Franks.Rooftop_Cafe_Peckham_2010.Credit.Joao.Nauman Gerry's Club - This place is in fact run by a guy called Michael, not Gerry.

The Gibson - It’s kind of like an Edwardian time-warp and legendary bartenders Marian (ex-Nightjar) and Rusty (ex-Connaught) know a thing or 50 about making perfect cocktails.

Mr Foggs - Around the World in 80 Days fans get ready, cos Phileas Fogg is in town, as is his beautiful and extravagant bar. Get ready to explore – the walls are adorned with pictures of Fogg’s ancestors, animals he has hunted and souvenirs he’s picked up on his travels. Oh and the cocktails are BANG on too. Nightjar - World famous for its cocktails and with a waiting list to prove it. The garnishes turn their drinks into works of art worthy of a museum.

Looks like September's gunna to be a busy one.

1. Quo Vadis is having a makeover

Opens: 12th September Brothers Sam and Eddie Hart have given their legendary Soho joint a makeover. They're keeping the upper floors as members only: on the first floor there'll be an members only restaurant (where the long bar used to be) and on the second floor you'll find a new blue bar and the music will be strictly electro baby. But we're VERY excited for what's going on down on the ground... it'll be transformed back the original dining room it was back in the day where it'll host a new restaurant, baby. Here Head Chef Jeremy Lee will be dishing up an Autumnal menu, making the most of the Game season. Also later this year the epic Barrafina will be setting up shop at QV with a separate entrance. See you in there! Quo Vadis, 26-29 Dean Street, London, W1V 6LL 2.Tiger Dram This one's on the down-low yo, but head to 3/4 Battersea Rise and rub Buddha's belly - you'll find this secret curry and whiskey house. Think African/Indian-style dishes, paired with some top notch whiskeys. If you find yourself sitting near the 'Lucky Buddha' then you can roll the dice; 2x6’s your food's on the house! Opens: 6th September until Dec 2016 // Tuesday - Saturday 6pm to 11pm. No bookings - so get in line y'all. Cornish Tiger, 1, Battersea Rise, London SW11 1HG 3. Burlock Open: NOW The guys behind BarChick faves Opium bar and 68 and Boston are bringing a new rum bar to Mayfair, and this one's gunna be mega. Here you'll find 200 different bottles of the stuff. There'll be a faux Havana style barber shop that doubles up as a drinking area, and of course loads of killer rum cocktails. If you're feeling brave, go for the grasshopper challenge: wash down a grasshopper (the Burlock mascot) with a shot of rum. We dare you. Get involved in the small plates too - they sound awesome - Brazilian Cheese Buns and Empanada’s (with curried lamb, sweet potato and more). Bring it on! 31 Duke Street, London W1U 1LG burlock london   4. Kisetsu  Open: NOW Jason Atherton blew everyone's mind with Sosharu so now he's putting a sexy new Japanese restaurant Kisetsu right inside it. Nice. Whereas Sosharu has a more relaxed vibe, Kisetsu is high-end, with top notch fine dining Japanese dishes. Concealed by a curtain, you’ll feel like you’re in on an exclusive lil’ secret. And with the kitchen smack bang in the middle of the place, the chef will be so close, you’ll be able to high five him from your seat. Turnmill Building, 63 Clerkenwell Road, London EC1M 5NP kisetsu london 5. Three Sheets (currently Between The Sheets) Opens: 22nd September
Look out for this hot new Dalston bar, which sits subtly on Kingsland Road. Max Venning (previously ops manager at Tony Conigliaro's Drinks Factory) has teamed up with his bro to revamp the place. Since taking over a month ago they've been trading as it was, but they have new ideas so are going to reopen late September with a new name and throw in some killer cocktails to boot. It's going to be a low-key, relaxed affair - think neighbourhood bar vibe. There'll be Dalston-style exposed brick, with a contrasting long square marble bar. Drinks-wise, we're excited for the ‘French 75’ with Gin, Clarified lemon, Verjus, Moscato, Orange Flower, the whole drink will be carbonated then served it straight from a Champagne bottle.
510b Kingsland Road, E8 4AE
6. Kiln Opens: Sometime in September Get excited, 'cos the BBQ Thai legends at Smoking Goat are finally opening up another spot in Soho.

Can't wait! 58 Brewer Street, London W1F 9TL 7. Corals  Open: NOW Cocktail cool kid Sean Blake (of Sean’s Bar) hooks up with local hero Lerryns cafe, throws in lots of bottles of booze you haven't heard of yet, and POW, you've got a neighbourhood staple. Cocktails made using fruit fresh from the local stalls lead the way on the drinks list. Kick off with a bellini (yes really) – served long, packed full of fresh flat peach puree and best of all it’ll only set you back £6. 200 Rye Ln, London SE15 4UR Corals 8. Chick 'n' Sours, Seven Dials Opens: 20th September This solid BarChick fave is bringing its banging fried chicken and sexy sour cocktails to Soho. Expect all the classics - the Korean Fried Chicken Bun and THAT Szechuan Aubergine dish (it's a must-try).

YES. The house sour from Haggerston will be tweaked for this location, with blackberries instead of raspberries and finished off with Womersleys Farm’s Lavender, Lime & Black Pepper vinegar. Bring it on.. 1, Earlham St, Seven Dials, WC2 chick n sours 9. Dirty Bones, Shoreditch Opens: 7th September If you like a big fat sloppy burger, get excited 'cos Dirty Bones has headed east. You can expect the insane American-style dishes from Kensington and Soho (like that epic Mac 'n' Cheese burger).

Here Pablo Peñalosa Nájera (from Four Seasons in Bogatà) makes his debut in London, heading up MNKY HSE's open kitchen. There's not much low-down on the food yet, but we can report it's gonna be a Mezcal-heavy drinks' list and some experimental creations too - POW.

The Camden Assembly Opens: Mid-September There's a new music party place in Camden y'all. From the team behind XOYO, Phonox, The Jazz Café - so you know there's gunna be some hot acts.

Nice. Get involved. Burgers are OLD NEWS we hear you cry. The surge of new burger joints might have slowed down but the demand is still damn high. McDonald's serve 68 million customers per day, and sure there's a time and a place (3am bender) for a Big Mac meal deal but we're not after rubber cheese and stale buns - bring on the real burgers. These meaty treats aren’t going anywhere and there’re a f*ck load to get through;  BarChick  carb-loaded her way around London, all in the name of research. So, in NO particular order (we know how you burger super fans can get): Big Fernand The Parisians have come to sex up our burgers and boy, are they doing it right.  Big Fernand is the newest member of Soho's patty possy and is bringing a whole mix n match burger menu to the table.  Take that artisan bun, choose your meat and get padding it out with confit onions, un-pasteurised French cheeses such as Raclette or Fourme d'Ambert and home-made sauces created by Chef Thomas Boutin. This joint is Parisienne personified: super sexy but probably takes itself a little too seriously. 19 Percy Street, London, W1T  Patty & Bun The messiest of them all If the queue doesn’t scream volumes then the amount of people leaving slightly fatter, with a sweaty grin on their face, will. This place is an in / out affair, no hanging about. Get in, stuff your face and get out.

The burger you eat when you don’t give a sh*t about getting food all around your mouth and meat juice dripping down your arm, that’s what the huge kitchen rolls are for. The food is served on one big tin tray and it’s up to you to dive in. All the variations are pretty banging but the one that caused the most salivation was the Dead Hippy made with two French mustard fried beef patties, dead hippie sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and minced white onions. Wash them all down with bangin' boozy shakes and killer cocktails. Various Locations MEATLiquor.Burger Honest Burger Triple cooked rosemary fries, honest These burgers may look relatively small compared to the usual gourmet beasts we’re used to, but what they lack in size they make up for in flavour. Plus you want to save room for those exceptional triple-cooked rosemary fries, they are undeniable. The Special Burger is usually a show stopper, but you can’t go wrong with their awesome Honest Burger made with beef, red onion relish, smoked bacon, mature cheddar, pickled cucumber and lettuce.

With meat from farms across England inside a slightly sweet bun to compliment the meaty goodness, these really do tick all the boxes. Plus their fries are like a lucky dip with a few sweet potato ones thrown into the mix. Don’t expect any quirky variations, they keep their burgers basic; basic and buff. Various Locations - It Moves About... Bleecker.Street.Burger Soho Kitchen and Bar Plain and simple Sometimes simplicity really is the best. TWO beef patties (nice touch guys) and a bun that's soft but dense meaning it is able to handle the meaty juices without turning soggy and falling apart – that’s science for you! You can add a fried egg, half an avocado or some bacon if you’re wanting to pimp it. The bacon is almost as thick as the patty… they aren’t mucking about! 19-21 Old Compton Street, Soho, London.

The charcoal absorbs toxins and helps with idigestion, wind and heartburn... if that's your thing.  The bun is made by The Dusty Knuckle Bakery in Dalston and the chicken (marinated in lime, ginger, soy and sesame overnight) comes from Liverpool Street Chicken shop family butchers, so very local goods. 196 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JE   bull in china shop burger" ["post_title"]=> string(21) "London's Best Burgers" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(22) "best-burgers-in-london" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2016-08-25 13:41:54" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2016-08-25 12:41:54" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(32) "http://www.barchick.com/?p=55499" ["menu_order"]=> int(0) ["post_type"]=> string(4) "post" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } } ["post_count"]=> int(5) ["current_post"]=> int(-1) ["in_the_loop"]=> bool(false) ["post"]=> object(WP_Post)#409 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(51490) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "4" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2016-09-20 11:42:45" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2016-09-20 10:42:45" ["post_content"]=> string(39590) "

Sexy Fish

This bad boy's not only got Damien Hirst mermaids and Frank Gehry fishlamps, but two of the largest coral reef tanks in the world. It's also from the masterful team behind The Ivy, so you know it's gonna be epic. If you and 47 of your mates book The Coral Reef Room, you'll not only get to sit next to those massive tanks, but you'll get your own private bar, some of the freshest sashimi in town and access to the 3rd largest whisky collection in the world. BarChick'll be there until taxi time.

House of Ho Fitzrovia

Being the flagship, this place (of epic proportions) is more upmarket than their older outposts: think marble tables, French-colonial fittings, open kitchens and people who are willing to shell out £40 for a main. Don’t let that put you off though ‘cos they’ve got snacks, dim sum, small plates and bottles of wine that’ll give even the penny pinchers a full belly and a winey haze. If you're rolling with a crew, book one of the private dining rooms upstairs (Hanoi, Mirror Room and Ho Chi Minh) and do Vietnamese properly.

Canto Corvino
Flora and fauna illustrations, exposed brick, wicked wine and succulent meat from a Josper is what you can expect from this new venture from the owners of Manicomio. The basement is where you'll find their private room of wine cages and moody lighting. Find 23 carnivores and get involved. BarChick is a sucker for their blood sausage gnudi, which is a total bucket list cert. 21 Artillery Lane, Spitalfields, London E1 7HA corvino2   Smith & Wollensky 3 smart private dining rooms are in this American steakhouse transplant and all will make you feel like you're a f*cking hero or in a Scorcese film. Opt for The Theodore Roosevelt room (for 50 people) for a private bar and barman or the Liberty (for 25 people) or Churchill (for 28 people) rooms for more of an intimate setting. If you're absolutely minted, book 1 or 2 floors for private hire and go wild. Gilt mirrors, globe lightbulbs and mint green hues will be background to your Porterhouse steak gorging. The Adelphi, 1-11 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6HT wollensky   Quo Vadis This is one of BarChick's favourite stained glass windows and pin-striped awning kind of hangouts. If you're looking to dine privately, you can't get much better than this. Everything is impeccable from the food and the drinks to the service. The Marx Room, The Leoni Room, The Snug and The Petting Room are all available for your private happiness.

Blixen

Clive Watson of Riding House Cafe is behind this brasserie, so it's already got a good track record. Think timeless brasserie of the grand cafe tradition with a voguish modern London twist. If you've ever fancied dining on international cuisine in a bank safe, this one's got your name on it.

The Club at The Punchbowl

The Punchbowl has seriously upped its dining game with the swanky new Art Deco restaurant upstairs, but it's the Club hidden above it where BarChick likes to entertain her finest friends. It's like a Victorian art collector’s dream up there; work your way around the room, have a drink with the mysterious faces staring back at you and then settle into a menu of culinary wonders. This is the kind of place you can really get stuck in for long whether it be lunch or dinner; go on and sink into a Chesterfield and make like you're lord of the manor.

Social Wine & Tapas

This is Jason Atherton's latest: an exclusive wine shop and tapas bar in Marylebone with private dining and wining available. On the top floor is the tasting room for, you guessed it, wine (which you're welcome to pair with tapas) and in the basement is a semi-private affair. Book for up to 8 in the former and 10 in the latter. Rare and fine wines have been sourced from all around the world just for you, so what are you waiting for?

Percy & Founders

Arts & Crafts meets Art Deco in Percy's Den where you can conjoin forces with 23 others (if they prefer to be seated) or 34 others (if they're content to stand). There are 12 handmade tables sporting all sorts of primary colours, so feel free to muck around and arrange them in creative configurations before your rabbit terrine is served. There's also a bespoke wood and glass bar, drinks trolley with bar staff at the helm, 60" LED TV and surrealistic/retro-futuristic prints on the walls. This is the sort of place you rouge your lips or put on the skinny tie for.

Le Pont de la Tour 

If you want epic riverside dining, this is the spot for you. BarChick opts for the wine cellar-cum-private dining room, but you can rent space in the main restaurant if vistas of the Thames is what you're after. The wine list is obviously mega and the food menu's up there with it; terrine of duck foie gras, raviolo of lobster, salads of golden beetroots and much more. Group capacity is 10-300 depending on which room/space you fancy.

Big Easy Canary Wharf

Think 19th century shack and Bar.B.Q  joint of the American Gulf Coast meets West India Docks and there you are. Whack on a bib, clutch that cutlery for dear life and get ready to feast on some pulled pork, BBQ and outrageous lobster. Peace out small plates dining. Want more of a pull? There's a Rum Bar moored at all times with over 100 varieties, a killer cocktail menu and rum casks on tap. But you're here for some privacy. Book the Captain's Table dining room for you and 25 of your mates. It'll be epic.

Rules

We love Rules for its liveried doormen, its roaring log fire and the slab of Stilton that comes with your cocktail. As soon as you walk through the door you half expect to see some old literary hound propping up the bar, cigar in hand, but nowadays you're more likely to see BarChick. The John Betjeman Room accommodates 10 and the Grahame Greene Room seats 18. Bring along some T. S. Eliot poetry and measure your life with spoons of spirit.

Chutney Mary

They're the supposed spearheads of the contemporary Indian restaurant, so it's not only worth a visit for its food, but for its status as 'relic' cos it's been around since the 90s. Both the Club Room and the Crystal Room are awash with modern Indian decor; choose the former if you want to accommodate between 18 and 32 people seated (or 60 for a cocktail reception) and choose the latter if you have a smaller group of 10 to 16. Don't leave without trying their Tandoori lobster marinated in lime, ginger and kashmiri chili as it's absolutely killing.

The Rib Room

It’s a bit dated, but it’s a good place for a Knightsbridge pit-stop if you're an old crooner with a troop of nieces in tow. They've got three private dining rooms so take your pick. The first seats 10, the second seats 14 and has its own private smoking terrace (perfect for chainers), and the last seats 20 and has no windows which is perfect for… private affairs. All offer à la carte or set menu.

Coya

The place to go for some good ol' people watching, you might not know that Coya has a banging private dining room for up to 12 guests. Not only are the walls are covered in bright murals by a Brazilian graffiti artist, you get an awesome view straight into the kitchen. They're also serving up George Clooney's small-batch tequila range, Casamigos - only in this room, people. Grab your mates and get your VIP on.

Boisdale - Canary Wharf

Filled to the brim with suits wining and dining their clients, it's old school and it works well. If you really want to go to town then take things up a level to their second floor private dining room, The Gallery Room, which boasts amazing views across the City, capacity for 20 - 40 guests and private dining menus. All rooms are appropriately tartan, crimson and swanky so there's your holiday dining stress sorted and booted.

  The Wolseley The Wolseley is the ultimate restaurant with all its old school charm. The private dining room, which is discreetly placed at the top of a staircase, can seat up to 14 guests and it's impeccable. Breakfast, lunch, dinner? Not to fret: it lends itself to any occasion. Light spills in through the windows by day, and seductively lit candles give glow by night. Hello delicious sultry dining.

The Ivy

This classic has been recently revamped and all heads are turning. Whilst the whole space has had an overhaul, we're most psyched about the private dining room (which seats up to 60) fashioned by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Envision a room of harlequin stained glass, oak panelling, handwoven camouflage carpet and a bespoke bar and there's your very lavish abode for the night. The menu will be whatever suits your personal taste (within reason, that is) and the music will come in the form of a baby grand piano, jazz trio or string quartet. Fancy.

Bocca di Lupo

Italian cooking at its very best: from raw sea bream and slow roast duck to risotto with Prosecco and oysters, they've got it handled. Their private and beautiful Remus Room can seat 12 to 32 for lunch or dinner, so no need to worry about space. Design your own menu or pick one of their Classic or Bocca menus which start at £40; from the first to the last morsel you'll be howling your appreciation.

Portland Full marks from AA Gill and praise from a sizable portion of the BBC's workforce is not what makes Portland epic, but it certainly adds to its mystique. Their private room accommodates parties of 8 to 16 people and whilst the decor isn't super revolutionary in anyway, it's a brilliant and simple backdrop for what you'll be plated up: 5 shared 1st courses, Yorkshire beef, Denham Estate venison, Amalfi lemon curd and the like. 113 Great Portland Street, London W1W 6QQ portlandprivate Manicomio Manicomio's private dining room is where  you go if you want to dress to the nines and not be given to much sh*t about it. Cocktail receptions accommodate 30-60 people, so no need for the anxiety that inevitably arises from having to pick and choose between mates. There’s even a private courtyard in which to schmooze under the sun (fingers crossed) beforehand.

  Hawksmoor, Guildhall Hawksmoor Guildhall is at the steak-beating-heart of city life - it’s always heaving with suited and booted slickers. The decor is sexy (in an Oxford College kinda way) and has its own bar, so you can go hard all night long on Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brews. The private dining room seats up to 22 and their steak is the best in town.

  Modern Pantry White-washed, high-ceilinged, light-flooded space with simple ornamentation. BarChick loves it for its understated yet elegant decor as much as for its sherry and innovative approach to tapas.

So if you're an art lover, this is where to brag about it to your friends with an 18 quid cocktail in hand. Charming. Available for up to 60 guests, set menus boasting modern British cooking start at £49. Even string quartets can be arranged as a nice counterpart to your interactive art and gastro experience. Let the madness begin.

  Bob Bob Ricard This private room has a Champagne button...need we go on? Bob Bob Ricard is the ultimate Russian playground: it's sealed with marble, it’s chock-full of Champagne and caviar is always on the menu. Attire? Fur and diamonds, naturally. The private room seats 14, and there's a minimum spend of £500, but with Champagne just a finger away, this shouldn't be a problem.

They can accommodate 18 – 60 for a sumptuous Cantonese feast.

Chelsea can seat up to 40 and Canary Wharf can seat up to 24 suits. Settle in for modern British fare.

What about alcohol, you ask? Wine is carefully picked, delicious and reasonable.

Beach Blanket Babylon If you wanna host a dinner where you dress as Marie Antoinette and encourage your guests to wear masks and feed each other seductively, this is the place. Choose from The Ballroom, The Chapel, The Crypt or The Drawing Room, all of which are conducive to debauchery.

  Le Coq BarChick stumbled upon Le Coq in Islington before a football game and had one of the best tasting chicken meals ever. But it was on the way to the loo that she spotted the private dining room and fell in love: it’s all sexy green walls, big oak table and lamps made from chicken egg pails in a glitter ball style alcove. It can fit around 14 mates/colleagues for no minimum spend or hire charge and the menu can be anything from classic rotisserie chicken (do it) to meat or fish. Or go get picky and create a completely bespoke menu with them... trust us, with food this good it will be worth every penny.

Barchick Says

Date Updated: 17/05/2016

Around the World in 80 Days fans get ready, cos Phileas Fogg is in town, as is his beautiful and extravagant bar – here to shake up the ever so swanky Mayfair bar scene. Head up the industrial looking Bruton Lane and look out for the inviting glow from the windows, the place looks like it’s been here for years. You want the left hand door, ring the doorbell and enter the 1870s – in fact you may even feel out of place if you’re not dressed like the immaculate (and handsome) bus boy who takes your coat (think 19th Century Gieves & Hawkes uniform).

Set up camp at the beautiful copper bar and admire the antique back bar, but make sure you go and explore – the walls are adorned with pictures of Fogg’s ancestors, animals he has hunted and souvenirs he’s picked up on his travels. In fact there’s so much to discover here that we won’t ruin any more surprises – go and check it out for yourself.

If there’s a group of you, get a table amongst Fogg’s luggage (you may need to book so ping BarChick Concierge a text on 07481 341284 and we’ll sort it). Needless to say the cocktails are in a league of their own– with a selection of drinks and ingredients from around the time the book was written. But if they’re all sounding a bit adventurous then ask the bartender to knock up whatever you fancy – in fact if you’re lucky enough to be there when Danilo is behind the bar, then you’re in safe hands.

This summer you can also frolick in Mr Fogg’s outdoor botanical garden where you can nose around his collection of weird objects and crazy plants. While you’re there, tuck into Hendrick’s gin cocktails. Hidden in a calm corner away from bustling Mayfair, you’ll feel well smug you know about this secret outside drinking spot.
