Top Celebrity Hangout Restaurants in London
London is no stranger to global superstars, and nor are its restaurants. Follow in their culinary footsteps and you could glimpse a star over your stroganoff, sip champers with celebs, and break bread with the bigwigs. Because you won’t become part of the glitterati from your sofa.
Bluebird - Chelsea
A regular Made in Chelsea haunt, Bluebird is a place to be seen, and be on the scene. The chic bar, outdoor terrace and flashy open kitchen are so very Chelsea, but the menu doesn’t take a back seat. Expect the likes of handmade pasta, fresh lobster and a choice of perfectly cooked steaks.
Quaglino’s - St James’s
A Mayfair institution, Quaglino’s has been welcoming London’s jet set since 1929. Served against a backdrop of live jazz, the menu is fittingly sophisticated, featuring flavour-rich creations like sea bass with grilled bok choy and oyster emulsion, pork fillet with curried cauliflower and boudin noir, and 40-day aged Angus ribeye with béarnaise.
STK - St James’s
Far more glamourous than your average steakhouse, STK is all about fine meat, extravagant cocktails, and even more extravagant decor. Dishes like braised USDA short rib, slow-cooked venison loin, and native lobster fish fingers are enough to draw in celeb and non-celeb diners alike.
100 Wardour Street - Soho
100 Wardour Street
Keeping Soho’s iconic spirit alive, 100 Wardour Street sits on the site of the old Marquee Club which played host to David Bowie and The Rolling Stones. Today, there’s still live music and DJs 5 nights a week, as well as menu of grill favourites and sharing dishes, a fantastic cocktail selection and a spectacular wine list.
Hakkasan - Mayfair
A Michelin-starred restaurant in Mayfair, it’s hardly surprising that Hakkasan draws in some distinguished diners. Stars on the contemporary Chinese menu include pan-fried wagyu beef in spicy Szechuan sauce, black truffle roasted duck with tea plant mushroom, and stir-fry Australian lobster in spicy black bean sauce.
