A makeover in 2005 while under new management, the Soho House Group, has upped the sex appeal of this long-time favorite of art dealers. One of the big improvements is the gleaming central bar, with its exceptional cocktails and Prosecco on tap. Dark wood and pea-green leather chairs, black-and-white tiled floors, and Art Deco lighting are pure 1920s Venice. The food is classic Italian—rustic Tuscan bean soup, veal Milanese, wild mushroom risotto. Also here is London's only cichetti bar, offering Italian tapas such as salt cod mantecato on crostini and Umbrian sausages with red pepper (served all day).
