If it’s wow factor you’re after, get down on one knee at this arty dining destination.

Set within a grade II listed townhouse, the design of this cavernous venue is outrageously over-the-top. Choose whether to eat at the Michelin-starred Lecture Room or at the Gallery brasserie, which was given a recent facelift by Turner Prize-winning artist David Shringley. Walls are splashed with 239 of Shringley’s comical drawings and comfy chairs are a frothy pink.

The brainchild of French master chef Pierre Gagnaire and restauranteur Mazouz, the yummy food and quirky décor will guarantee that this is a night to remember.
