The fantastic art offering available across the sixteen artistic outlets is another key attraction on the Pimlico Road. From championing contemporary hyperrealist art at Plus One Gallery, to the antique eighteenth-century artwork available at John Adams Fine Art Ltd at Ebury Galleries, Pimlico Road caters to the most eclectic of artistic tastes. Galleries on Pimlico Road regularly host exhibitions representing leading talent in the artistic arena as well as bolstering the profile of some of the world’s most intriguing emerging talent.
The restaurants are exceptional too, from French Michelin-starred Rousillon, to menu-free Hunan, with its authentic flow of spicy Chinese tapas. La Poule au Pot is frequently awarded the accolade of ‘London’s most romantic restaurant’. Recent openings include The Orange, set in the former Orange Brewery and lovingly restored to its former glory by the team behind The Thomas Cubitt and The Pantechnicon.
