Made in Chelsea: where to find the cast's favourite bars and restaurants in London

Time for a cocktail, darlings?

Sophie Hamilton

Made in Chelsea series 17 is in full swing with fans gripped by the ultra-busy social lives of the Kings Road set. The elite 20-somethings hang out in London's most exclusive venues, from chic cocktail bars to the coolest restaurants and brunch spots. If you fancy rubbing shoulders with the cast in London's swanky Chelsea borough and beyond, we've got the favourite hangouts of the likes of Jamie Laing, Olivia Bentley and Melissa Tattam.

From the MIC institution that is the Bluebird Café, to the ever-popular Phene pub and fun Farringdon bar Bounce, here's our top pick of where the glamorous Made in Chelsea crowd might be mingling this series...

The Bluebird Café, Chelsea

MIC hotspot Bluebird Café is perhaps the most famous haunt of Sophie Hermann and co. While the unpretentious café and accompanying courtyard is perfect for a girly brunch or relaxed week-night dinner date, the co-stars can head upstairs to the swanky restaurant when a special occasion comes around. Gin fans will be in their element with a dedicated gin menu, and visitors can expect to try everything from buttermilk fried crab and wild mushroom risotto to the legendary Bluebird cheeseburger.

The Phene, Chelsea

Plush and fashionable, as befits the surrounding area, this pub is a cut above the rest and a regular with the MIC cast. With outdoor fireplaces and deep sofas, the stunning gardens are the pub's highlight and provide a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the capital. Pop in and you may well bump into Alex Mytton, who often joins his mates in the cosy pub owned by the father of former show star Lucy Watson.

The likes of James Taylor and Eliza Batten are often spotted at the private members club situated on London's exclusive King's Road. Set over three floors, the venue has an all-day restaurant, two bars, a nightclub and a private dining room for intimate parties, MIC style.

Bounce, Farringdon

We've seen the cast at Bounce many times over the past few series and it looks so much fun! The restaurant-come-bar-come-table tennis venue is a fab place to go on a relaxed date. They even have digital beer pong – what more could you ask for?
