“Sexy and Decadent”: The Sessions Arts Club in London


Spotted (and admired) in the UK Guardian: The Sessions Arts Club in London, a restaurant, bar, art, and performance space. “Decadent, a bit sexy, and definitely not of its time,” is how the Guardian’s restaurant critic Grace Dent describes the dining experience.

Located in a Grade II listed former courthouse in Clerkenwell, the restaurant is accessed through an unmarked red door off a side street and occupies the judges’ original dining room.

Half a decade in the making, the Old Sessions House is a collaboration among like-minded creatives, including restaurateur Jon Spiteri, artist Jonny Gent of Cabin Studios, architect Russell Potter of SODA, and brothers Ted and Oliver Grebelius of Sätila Studios. Not to mention celebrated chef Florence Knight, who has been earning accolades for her refined and deceptively simple cuisine.
