Last week my best friend from Denmark came to London to visit me. I haven’t seen her in a year, so I was really excited and looking forward to spending a bit of quality time together. Even though we both love and adore little Clara, I wanted to go somewhere, where it was only the to of us enjoying cocktails and a good meal, while catching up on lost times

Luckily I had an invitation to Members’ Club 24 Mayfair on 24 Hertford Street – a new entry to the Mayfair club scene (and open 24 hours a day!) We decided to pay the bar/ restaurant a visit and what a great idea it was! 24 Mayfair is stunning with its plush deep violet velvet armchairs against a warm, tarnished gold backdrop – clearly inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood. We absolutely loved it!

The intimate bar serves a light daytime menu and transforms into a cocktail bar in the evening. Our mixologist clearly knew, what he was doing and spoiled us with the most amazing drinks

After a few drinks, we headed upstairs to the dazzling restaurant…

The menu here is eclectic, including sushi and teppanyaki alongside traditional European fare

Here I am enjoying live cooking in the eight-cover, glass-encased teppanyaki bar!

I have never had the pleasure of experiencing live cooking before… And I was not disappointed. This is social dining at its finest. We had so much fun with the other guests and our chef Marcel. I loved to see all the fresh ingredients being prepared for perfection

Sashimi, maki, fresh cod, langoustine, sirloin, rice, vegetables – you name it The Teppanyaki Bar definitely took our senses on an exquisite adventure!

The service here was outstanding. Our waiters were warm and attentive, but not “too much” – which I believe is the perfect way of taking care of your guests! 

If you have read my review on Instagram, you will already know, that I was a big fan of the food served here. It was outstanding and one of the best meals, I have ever had! 

My friend and I wanted to taste a bit of it all, so after having enjoyed heavenly maki bites, we had rice with sirloin, cod, lamb and langoustine

I am still completely overwhelmed by the taste explosion in my mouth! After an experience like this, you really don’t want to go back to mediocre meals. I tried to get the secret teriyaki sauce recipe from Marcel – but with no luck!

Even the rice was incredible! You could definitely taste, that only fresh ingredients had been used. Marcel asked if we wanted a bit of garlic and chilli in our rice – which we did… Highly recommendable!

I really wanted to have some dessert, but I was simply too full, so that will have to wait until my next visit! We ended out girls’ night out in the bar, where we enjoyed a few more cocktails and live music (and perhaps we even went to the casino next door – but that is a different story!)

A big thank you to 24 Mayfair for inviting us! We had such a lovely evening
