These days, quality food isn’t the only criteria when it comes to choosing a restaurant. With the rise of social media and Instagram in particular, it’s imperative that any dining experience be both delicious and aesthetically pleasing. This fine balance is something that the four eateries below have perfected. Check out the most Instagrammable restaurants in the world.
Sketch – London, UK
London’s Sketch has so much going for it. First, it is historic, as the building dates back to the eighteenth century. Second, it is located mere blocks from bustling Oxford Street. Third, it serves as both a tea room and an upscale cocktail lounge.
And then to top it off, Sketch is decked out with pink velvet booths, a complementary coral bar back, and of course, millennial pink-painted walls, all of which create an Instagrammable paradise.
Also, it offers one of the best afternoon teas in London, boasting vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, and even gelatine-free options.
Habanera – Madrid, Spain
A tropical and majorly Instagram-worthy paradise awaits at Habanera. This Madrid spot is covered in fresh greenery from top to bottom (seriously, plants are both on the ground and hanging from the ceiling.)
To complement the flora, there is a black and white tiled floor, bamboo light fixtures, and couch cushions in a variety of lively patterns.
Menu items vary, but in true Spanish-style, tapas is the specialty. Fresh pasta, tempura shrimp, carpaccio, cannelloni, flatbread pizza, and a classic hamburger are just a few of the items you can indulge in at Habanera (that is, when you’re not busy snapping pics.)
Hacienda Sydney – Sydney, Australia
Mint green and millennial pink is the color palette at Hacienda Sydney, a trendy bar in Australia’s largest city. If those on-trend hues aren’t enough to entice you, there are tall palms placed throughout, and a trellis ceiling complete with hanging vines and white wisteria.
Plus, Hacienda Sydney is located in Sydney Harbour, which boasts spectacular views of the renowned Harbour Bridge.
This means that whether you’re snapping pics with the view or bar in the background, you can bet it’s going to be ‘gram-worthy. In terms of food offerings, their menu mostly contains finger foods like pumpkin flowers, chicken sliders, prawn skewers, and tuna ceviche.
Meanwhile, cocktails range from Wild Ginger Julep made with bourbon-infused ginger, rosemary syrup, lemon juice, and mint to the Fresa Spritz comprising elderflower liqueur, strawberry syrup, soda water, and Prosecco.
Pietro NoLita – NYC, USA
In case you haven’t heard, NoLita is the neighborhood in which to see and be seen in Manhattan at the moment. Pietro NoLita is a tiny cafe-bistro tucked away on Elizabeth Street, offering healthy Italian fare in a retro, 1950s-style interior.
Pink tables, pink chairs, pink walls — you name it, it’s pink! They even painted the outside of the building pink for that perfect Instagram photo op. In terms of offerings, this eatery (open for lunch and dinner, as well as brunch on weekends) specializes in Italian classics like risotto, gnocchi, ravioli, grilled octopus and beef carpaccio. And, of course, don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy an authentic cup of Italian coffee (the to-go cups are as Instagrammable as the interior!)
