Made in Chelsea

Ever since Made in Chelsea burst onto our screens in 2011, we’ve been in awe of the glamorous bars that set the backdrop for the drama-fuelled episodes.

From the iconic Bluebird Café to the uber-trendy Jam Tree to Lucy Watson’s family pub, The Phene; the bars and restaurants that grace our screens every Monday make the series – let’s face it, Millie slapping Spencer around the face in a Costa would not have had the same effect. Here’s how you can party like an heiress in SW1.

    9 Phene Street, London , SW3 5NY Tel: 020 7352 9898 | www.thephene.com

    Owned by the father of Made in Chelsea’s former villain, Lucy Watson, The Phene is a Chelsea institution.

    This place, with a heritage stretching all the way back to 1853, has appeared in numerous MIC episodes – Lucy even held her 23rd birthday bash at this very pub. The Phene is all about luxury, style and, most importantly, comfort. There are plush Chesterfields lining the intricate, ornament ordained walls – creating a warm, welcoming and almost library-esque illusion. The Phene prides itself on their delicious and unpretentious cuisine; here you can tuck into a burger and chips and relax in sumptuous chairs whilst sipping a cocktail. However, the piece de resistance is the beautiful Phene Garden, which boasts an ethos to Mother Nature and resembles a quaint, old English country garden with bunting strewn above the tables.

    The Bluebird Café is a staple for any MIC episode – it’s SW3 through and through.

    This café / bar / restaurant is the scene for many morning, girly chats on the show and was even the host of the series five opening episode – the one where Cheska and Ollie squared up to Binky and Lucy, scowling over their cups of Earl Grey and Eggs Benedict. The Bluebird Café is a chic oasis on the bustling Kings Road, serving cocktails and scrumptious classic dishes. You can even peek into the treasure trove of the food store and walk away with a basket of produce worthy of Mark Francis. Open ‘til late, Bluebird is a fine choice for your hen weekend in London. Hey, you might even bump into Proudlock and the gang.
