Bardo St James


A life of luxury is calling at this Italian hotspot that evokes the elegance of a bygone era.

Get your glad-rags on - it's time to go glam or go home. BarChick chooses the 'glam' option, so join us in sashaying over to Bardo St James, Mayfair's uber-swanky & seriously sexy nightspot.

Descend into the dimly-lit restaurant & it's like entering another era. White tablecloths with little red lamps sending out glowing pools of light; frothy emerald-green ferns dotted next to luxurious velvet booths; dark panneled walls adding to the seductive vibes; a live band bringing a buzz of energy. The restaurant's MO is to deliver la Dolce Vita to London, and they're ticking all the right boxes. That's before you've even perused the lavish menu.

Burrata is as silky & creamy as we'd hoped, served with white balsamic dressing & figs. The black cod melts in the mouth. Order a pasta course as well - Sophia Loren famously said 'Everything you see I owe to spaghetti' so hey, we're gonna take her advice. A cocktail at the bar afterwards is practically non-negotiable. You won't wanna go back to the real world just yet, so stay immersed in the good life a little longer.
