Still trucking...

Several years down the line and the infamous restaurant cum tearoom cum club that is Sketch is still so super cool! The Russell Young pictures of Kate Moss and Pete Doherty as Myra Hindley and Ian Brady are a bit 'obvious', but if you like that kind of thing (and the punters in there paying £4 a biscuit do), then you like that kind of thing. Aside from that, the labyrinth of concept rooms, from the decadent cafe to the wall-to-wall cinema screen in the club, are utterly enchanting and compelling.

The only thing that lets the place down is their dreadful website which was certainly cutting edge 4 years ago, but now looks amateurish. Given where Flash for luxury websites is today (see Coco de Mer), Sketch are lagging conspicuously behind.

Sketch may have the best loos in London, but they need to flush their web designer!
