Fabulous 100

Coquine

London does not get much more lah-de-dah than Coquine, which is located on the exclusive end of the Old Brompton Road near the Little Boltons, which - do not be fooled - are not very little at all.

High-falutin and heavily designed by bar designer Lee Broom, it certainly does not lack in the looks department.

The main bar is similarly chic, with lampshades lined with Persian rugs, turquoise crushed velvet banquettes, dark floors and marine and green tiles.

Downstairs in the clubbier basement, the decadence deepens with darker hues, DJs at weekends, intimate, canoodle-friendly alcoves and flashes of renaissance art.  It is all a bit VIP.  Nearby, you have some  of the most fabulous shopping streets in London, with all the museums, galleries and restaurants within walking distance.
