Beach Blanket BabylonThis mad, gorgeous, fairy-tale fantasy of a bar/restaurant is usually full of glamorous young singles flirting like mad over their cocktails - but it's also hard to think of a more romantic spot for a couple to go drinking. Hundreds of candles light the way through a maze of corridors, where huge fireplaces, and crazed decor - part ancient Rome, part Versailles - leap out of the darkness. Concealed little nooks with low ceilings offer the perfect opportunity to duck away from the noise of the bar. The cocktails are excellent, the wine list interesting and fairly priced, and the decor is beyond belief. The food is overpriced, but it is very good, and you know that you're paying for more than just a meal when your choice of dining rooms include the chapel, crypt and scullery. Guests can also opt for private dining at Beach Blanket Babylon with the choice of the Ballroom, a decadent room that can seat up to 60 guests or play host to a champagne reception for 110 guests or the Chapel, a semi-private enclave within the restaurant. The beautiful ballroom, nestled away on the first floor, is one of Notting Hill's best kept secrets.
