Sexy Fish, Mayfair London
Asian inspired menu, sultry cocktails and a stellar line up of music The newest venture from the Caprice restaurant group, Sexy Fish is
on the south east corner of Berkeley Square in the heart of Mayfair, and opened in 2015 . Designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and decorated with artwork from the likes of Frank Gehry, Damien Hirst and Michael Roberts, the look and feel is mid-century glamour and refinement. Sexy Fish is split-level with a private room – The Coral Reef Room – on the lower ground floor, and the restaurant and terrace on the ground floor. The food takes its inspiration from the seas of Asia, with a focus on Japan. The bar holds Europe’s largest Japanese whisky collection at 280 bottles (the 2nd largest in the world, largest in Europe), as well as offering a hard-to-resist cocktail list. The
Frank Gehry’s beautiful shimmering fish (Fish Lamps) hang above the bar, softly glowing and undulating as if they were in the sea, rendered even more realistic by a flowing water wall behind the bar.

wine list is balanced and thought-provoking – collating vintages and cépages from all over the world. Damien Hirst has created three site-specific artworks for the restaurant, including a pair of exquisitely cast bronze mermaids, rendered in blue patina, positioned on either end of the bar; and a 15ft bronze relief panel by the artist, in which a mermaid is presented alongside a shark. The two fish tanks in The Coral Reef Room at Sexy Fish are truly magnificent. Measuring 6m and 4.5m in length, they are the largest live coral tanks known. Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has put together a collection of materials and colours that capture the essence of the sea. www.sexyfish.com. ■

Konopi House | Blue Lagoon, Jamaica
Konopi House | Blue Lagoon, Jamaica
Barefoot Chic While many, when thinking about a vacation in the tropics, envision
beaches, Jamaica’s Kanopi House, located in Portland, has you staying within the treetops of 100-foot Banyans. Here, environmentally friendly “tree houses” are connected via a pathway through the rainforest. As you’re close to Port Antonio, a key spot of Jamaica’s Riviera, you’re within distance of a lagoon, beach, and coral reef. As Jamaica, like many Caribbean vacation destinations, sees an influx of tourists, Kanopi serves as an antidote, offering a secluded getaway that places no strain on the surrounding region. Specifically, its low-impact, limited-footprint concept utilizes regionally sourced, sustainable hardwoods within its buildings, baskets, planters, and lampshades and operates with a “grey water” system. Design wise, the trees themselves may even pass through your living quarters. During your stay, the Great House serves your meals and drinks, while the accommodations – within four wooden-framed peaked treehouses in West Indian and colonial styles – offer one or two
bedrooms featuring lounges, verandas, French doors, indoor and outdoor showers, and a stocked kitchenette, and artwork from local artists. As the doors open to the outside, the trees and tropical foliage is literally feet away from where you’re staying. Mirroring Kanopi House’s concept, meals served in the Great House utilize locally farmed Caribbean ingredients. Through its array of traditional yet adventurous dishes, savor callaloo, green bananas, ackee, cocoa, sweet potatoes, yam, and various seafoods and meats, curried or grilled and prepared to your dietary preference. Yet, traveling to Kanopi gives you the opportunity to explore this quintessential Caribbean destination. Spend some time at the nearby beaches fishing, surfing, diving, or snorkeling above the coral reefs. On land, a hike near waterfalls and hot springs, bird-watching trips, river rafting adventures, mountain biking tours, and helicopter tours allow you to see this paradise from a variety of angles. www.kanopihouse.com. ■ Clientele Coastal Luxury Properties | 31
