...Places Near Haunch of Venison

“Nothing rounds off a trip to a gallery like buying a postcard, a novelty rubber and a glass of Champagne.”

It doesn't matter how old you are, September always carries with it a feeling of a new term; the end of the Summer, the beginning of a new chapter, the need for new pencils and a more studious approach to life. So if you are thinking of setting yourself a new (school) year resolution to be more cultured, and learn new things, Haunch of Venison is a good place to start. But remember: where there are achievements, there should always be rewards (and celebrations that teachers no longer have to be contended with). So below is where you can find yourself a chilled, congratulatory glass of Champagne and a well-deserved bite to eat. 

Le Caprice will offer you a chic pat on the back, and The Donovan Bar will spoil you - making you feel like the sophisticated gallery-dweller you always knew you were. Gaucho will mark the special occasion with flamboyance and fun, and sketch will catapult you straight into the arty set; a position you have now surely secured? 

You could reward yourself by eating too much at Automat, treat yourself to some romance at Babbo, or why not indulge in an aphrodisiac or two at the oyster bar at Bentley's? What would your teachers say?!

You can get in with the cool kids (and a few of the international ones) at Cuckoo Club, or why not regress completely and dance to the tunes of your youth at Mahiki, after all, art lessons always were the most fun.
