Frequented by a fashion-forward crowd including Kate Moss, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Matthew Williamson, you’d expect the interior of Paradise by Way of Kensal Green to hold a few surprises.
And, as always, you’d be right.
Like a scene plucked from the imagination of Lewis Carroll, the broad impression you’ll get at Paradise is “rock’n’roll stately home” featuring wood panelling, oil paintings and lines of leather-bound books alongside religious icons, cherub motifs and taxidermy.
Lounge artfully on a Chesterfield sofa while imbibing the pleasantly eccentric ambience of the place; head in for a Sunday roast; or elect to explore the quirky and unconventional environment in its entirety by visiting on a Friday or Saturday night.
If you’re looking to eat, Paradise offers gastropub-style food with a seasonal twist. Expect an inventive menu featuring home cooked food made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients and a broad range of options.
And if you’re looking for fun as well as food, you can stop looking: Paradise has a consevatory roof terrace built for cocktailing; and an upstairs “music room” hosting big name DJs at weekends.
NOTE: Paradise by way of Kensal Green is open weekdays from 4pm, and weekends from noon (until 1.30am on Fri & Sat, last entry 12.30am). Dogs are welcome in the bar area until 7pm. You can find out more, or book a table right HERE.
