Fashion Plates: Rock British Designers To A Posh New Pub

Even though we're total Anglophiles (who can resist that accent?), U.K. fare isn't always the most appetizing (aside from fish and chips and ale, of course). Well, leave it to Jared Meisler and Sean Macpherson of our Friday night go-to, Jones, and Michelin-starred chef Ralph Johnson of The Spotted Pig, to get us feasting on modernized Mother Country cuisine like Mary's Vinegar Chicken and Welsh Rarebit. An anything-but-dodgy pub, The Pikey has set up shop in the former Ye Coach & Horses space on Sunset, and the revamp definitely did the old bones some good. The three-tiered bar boasts a moody ambience and dapper decor with Maharajas suspended from the walls, and old-world treasures peppered throughout.

You'll want to sip on a Ginger Minge (a cheeky name for "fire crotch," but we promise it's tasty!), or a spicy, tequila-fueled Caravan, and nosh on a Blueberry Fool for dessert—a yummy foam-like treat. But forget Wellies and jumpers, we've got a polished, posh ensemble of It Brit designers for your grand entrée to the eatery. Now you're free to get a little blitzed on the mixology menu, meet some blokes, and go blissfully abroad—all without your passport. Cheers!
