Sundowner

What better way is there to enjoy the summer heat than to partake in a spot of chic al fresco dining? Domus Nova offers its pick of the places to head to this season – whether you opt for one of the new kids on the block or an old favourite they certainly won’t fail to disappoint

THE CLARENDON Beautifully styled, The Clarendon is a comfortable mix of boho and chic; a true evocation of Notting Hill charm. The fabulous terrace is a unique

DOCK KITCHEN

space – when the sun shines it’s easy

A must for any design aficionado, on the site of Tom Dixon’s latest project,

to feel that you are on holiday. Relax

Portobello Dock. Head chef Stevie Parle merges flavours together to create

on bespoke and antique furniture

a new kind of modern London cooking that sources specialities from places

while sampling one of their many

afar while still embracing hearty British delights – from Portuguese mussel

cocktails. The menu celebrates

soup to Kent-reared lamb and Cornish chicken. But the magic of the Dock

British classics with a modern

Kitchen is the thematic dinner menu that varies weekly: sample Sardinian

twist – organic beetroot gravadlax

dishes one week and Moroccan the next. There is also an enticing twice-

on blinis or beautifully char-grilled

weekly supper club. They even serve you seconds – a true winner for us!

PARADISE BY WAY OF KENSAL GREEN A top west London party haunt at night, The Paradise, as it’s known, is just as feted as a cool sanctuary to unwind in during the day. Exuding stylish eccentricity, one foot inside this wonderland feels as though you have just stepped into a rock ’n’ roll stately home. Head to the Mediterranean-style terrace for the famous Sunday brunch and some of the meanest Bloody Marys in town. Head chef Tim Payne whips up summery delights such as sensational scallops that come sliced with itzu dressing. Stay on to watch the sun go down before heading to the dance floor. If only walls could talk. 19 Kilburn Lane, Kensal Green, W10; theparadise.co.uk
