A new vision in dining: Asian-inspired cuisine, cutting-edge décor and a glamorous destination bar
When the idea of the name for Sexy Fish was mooted, it was agreed that it would be used as a working title for the in-house team pre-opening. No-one ever thought it would stick. But stick it did and, against all odds, the moniker itself has garnered rather a fan base.
Sexy Fish started life in Mayfair’s Berkeley Square in October 2015. A myriad of materials was sourced by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio to create the restaurant, bar and private room – the Coral Reef Room including esmeralda onyx marble; polished nickel for the wall lights and bar lamps; coral inspired fabric panels designed by Michael Roberts; glazed lava stone for the bars; raspberry leather custom-made furniture. And the list goes on. Damien Hirst was commissioned to create a pair of bronze mermaids and a relief panel – both rendered in blue patina.

Frank Gehry’s fish lamps swim lazily above the bar. His 13ft crocodile menaces customers on the high banquette tables. Italian architect, Carlo Scarpa was the influence for the staircase leading to the Coral Reef Room. And there lies a sight to behold: two giant fish tanks housing shoals upon shoals of tropical fish and a glorious collection of live coral, weaving back and forth in the gentle currents created for the tanks.
Food-wise, the menu veers towards the East, the emphasis, but not the entirety, being on fish and shellfish. An energetic, sociable and talented bar team shakes an extraordinary number of diverse cocktails throughout lunch and dinner services, seven days a week. DJs hit the decks for dinner service and the show goes on until the small hours.
