Did you know that London is the most Instagrammed city in Europe? In 2018 it was hashtagged 120 million times – 19 million more than second place, Paris.

Not only are we photographing the famous landmarks, but we are also taking pictures of the quirky restaurants. Gone are the days of simply taking a snap of your food, now we want a setting that is as Instagram-worthy as the dish we are discussing.

So, if you want to guarantee likes on your Instagram picture, follow in the footsteps of your favourite influencers or would just like to eat in a unique location, here are seven restaurants for Instagram lovers in the capital.

1. Sketch – Mayfair

You’ve no doubt seen Sketch’s pretty pink interior on Instagram – and this is just one of the rooms. Take a seat at a candyfloss pink chair and on the matching walls, you’ll see a gallery wall of art by David Shrigley. The Gallery is open for afternoon tea during the day and dinner in the evening. Make sure you remember to take your camera to the toilets, too.

2. Sushi Samba – Covent Garden

This restaurant was made for Instagram. It’s situated at the Opera Terrace above the Grade II-listed Market Building enjoying beautiful views across Covent Garden as well as boasting a ‘living ceiling’ of lush green plants above the lively bar inside. That’s before you even get to the food.

3. The London Edition – Fitzrovia 

Not only home to one of the most Instagrammable restaurants in the capital, The London Edition is also one of the more Insta-worthy hotels in London. Take a seat for dinner and admire the chandeliers on the ceiling and portraits that fill the walls – before getting that all-important photo.

4. Sexy Fish – Mayfair

This restaurant has been described as the ‘most flamboyant’ in London. The bar is decorated with bronze mermaids designed by Damien Hirst while water runs on the walls and there is a gold-plated crocodile. If that’s not enough, it is also home to two of the world’s largest live coral reef tanks. You’ll want to capture this space from every angle.

5. Coppa Club – Tower Bridge

These glass igloos are situated on the riverside with Tower Bridge providing the backdrop. In winter lights twinkle and blankets are provided, so you can snuggle up. Then in summer, the decor is changed to suit the warm months.

6. Bob Bob Ricard – Soho

There is easily one small part of this glamorous restaurant that is photographed more than any other and that is the ‘Press for Champagne’ button at each table. Ordering fizz has never been so easy. In fact, this restaurant pours more of this drink than any other restaurant in the country.

7. Circolo Popolare – Fitzrovia

You have probably seen this restaurant popping up across Instagram regularly over the last few months. It is the newest restaurant by Big Mamma, that also own Gloria and is planning a third. The bottle-filled walls and colourful flowers hanging from the ceiling will be the first thing to catch your eye. Make sure you get here early, hungry diners are still queuing to get a sought-after seat at this restaurant. You can book online at certain times throughout the day, but most tables are kept for walk-ins.

Book yourself a table and then don’t forget your camera so you can capture the moment as you enjoy the unique interior and delicious food.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
