Sessions Arts Club

Sessions Arts Club is an urban sanctuary located in Sessions House, a grand Grade II* listed building in Clerkenwell. The dining room is surrounded by three terraces with fireplaces, a rooftop bar and a garden. A restaurant, bar, art and performance space that moves and changes with the seasons through its curated collective program.

It might take a few sneaky walks around this Grade II-listed former courthouse in London’s Islington to discover the secret red door of the Sessions Arts Club. And you really feel like you’re entering an exclusive members-only club. Entering the candlelit dining room can be a heady mix of decadence and coziness, with huge windows, painstakingly peeled mint paint, exposed plaster, art and sculptures, plants and plush sofas.

Its real delight, however, is its carefully curated small menu. Chef Florence Knight draws inspiration from all over Europe for her beautiful and unpretentious creations: from prawn croquettes exploding with butter to a hearty potato with chunks of smoked eel – reminiscent of bacon taste. Then there’s the ‘peach and caramel’, a caramel-covered herb, peach and rosemary sorbet.
