The 'Made in Chelsea' cast's favourite hangouts

08 APRIL 2013

As Made in Chelsea returns to our screens for its fifth series, the HELLO! Online team have delved into their little black books to bring you the cast's favourite hangouts.

These are the hottest spots in London's ritzy Chelsea borough and they're where you're most likely to catch a glimpse of the well-heeled stars of the BAFTA-nominated series eating, drinking and partying.

Sushinho
Sushinho is the first restaurant in the capital to combine Brazilian and Japanese cuisine. The sleek and chic venue combines dark, mysterious lighting with the crisp simplicity of Japanese design. The Chelsea set flock to this intriguing eatery on the famous King's Road to have their tastebuds tingled by exquisite fish dishes and unusual combinations. The zingy moqueca ceviche, melt-in-the-mouth blackened butterfish with wasabi guacamole and crunchy cassava chips with chipotle sauce are standout dishes. The extensive cocktail menu combines fresh, exotic flavours with the finest spirits from Brazil and Japan.

The Botanist
At the heart of Chelsea on the edge of Sloane Square, this is a prime spot for people watching. As well as being a top choice for Made In Chelsea VIPs, Pippa Middleton and Chelsy Davy have visited in the past and it's easy to see why the sophisticated crowds keep coming back for more. The stylish, contemporary interior and airy dining space create a relaxed atmosphere. From breakfast through to dinner the menu offers classic, carefully sourced seasonal dishes. The delicate smoked haddock and leek tart and soft boiled quail's egg is the perfect way to start, while the confit duck leg, braised puy lentils, smoked ham hock and celeriac make for a satisfying and flavoursome main course. Top off your modern British feast with their decadent sticky toffee pudding which is served with lashings of comforting sauce. Their afternoon teas are the perfect post-shopping pick-me-up.

Big Easy
This New England style, King's Road diner is invariably full to the brim with young Londoners keen to get their fix of hearty American comfort food. Week night happy hour keeps the bar bustling – try a smooth frozen mango margarita before taking your table. The restaurant has been going strong for over 20 years with a vast menu that ranges from sizzling fajitas to racks of smoked baby back ribs slathered in the sensational house sauce. Portion sizes are astronomical so you're rightly advised to arrive hungry. Desserts, if you can manage one, are gloriously generous diner classics such as red velvet and carrot cake.

The Phene
Plush and fashionable, as befits the surrounding area, this pub is a cut above the rest. With outdoor fireplaces and deep sofas, the stunning gardens are the pub's highlight and provide welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the capital.

9 Phene Street, SW3 5NY

 

 

Boujis
Kate Middleton was often spotted in Boujis before she became the Duchess of Cambridge and this slick South Kensington exclusive members' club remains a fond favourite with the Made in Chelsea cast. You can only get past the plush red velvet ropes if you're on the guest list so this sultry nightspot retains its exclusive feel.

43 Thurloe Street, SW7 2LQ

Raffles
This Chelsea institution, currently enjoying its 45th anniversary celebrations, has a long history of A-list and royal visitors — The Queen dropped by with Prince Charles and Princess Anne for a 21st birthday party in the 70s and it was once the stomping ground of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Vivienne Westwood. If you can wangle a place on the guest list, expect to mingle with the borough's wealthiest dwellers and celebrities who appreciate the club's privacy and strict no-photography policy.
