The Ivy Chelsea Garden combines approachable sophistication and familiar luxury with an underlying feeling of glamour and theatre. Situated on the King's Road, it offers easy access all day long - over half the tables are available to "walk-ins". The iconic Grade II listed building that houses the restaurant is owned by Martin's Properties and dates back to 1722, when it was a licensed public house - Six Bells - famous also for its bowling green.
The building has been sensitively and substantially refurbished by Martin's to create a new London destination restaurant, notable for its exceptional garden and outside space (partially covered for those rainy English days). The look and feel of The Ivy Chelsea Garden is manifestly British and engagingly vibrant. The restaurant is made up of various areas, each with a distinctive character. These include a bar and bar lounge, cafe, restaurant, orangery, terrace and garden. The interiors have been designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (MBDS), and cleverly combine vintage with luxury, resulting in a space that is both alluring and down-to-earth. The garden has been created by Anthony Challis and Dan Curran of Ginko Gardens, and encompasses trailing wisteria and climbing roses adorning the garden's pergolas, stone clad fountains and leafy trellises.
The menu serves modern British and international dishes from dawn till dusk and a comprehensive and hugely enjoyable cocktail list includes a combination of classics and some inventive concoctions which the bar team has come up with.
