With the new Barbie film approaching, our inner child waits with excitement to relive some of our favorite memories with one of the most beloved toy brands in the world. The new film not only reignites nostalgia, but also sparks the new trend of Barbiecore, where vibrant and soft pinks reign supreme. Visit these London-based, Barbiecore-style bars, hotel rooms and gathering spaces for your pink fix.


Simmons Soho

Located in South London, visit Simmons Soho to enjoy the pink neon lights, chill lounge and cocktails in porcelain teapots. The space features a grand selection of lamps, unique wallpaper and a sparkling skull mirrorball. Sip on an espresso martini or try one of the bar’s unique cocktails like the Bees Knees, a honey tequila-based drink with lemon and sugar syrup.


Frank’s Café

The perfect photo opportunity awaits at the entrance of Frank’s Café. This space boasts a Pepto-pink backdrop, surrounding visitors in floor-to-ceiling pinkness, from the walls to the doors and staircase.


The Schiaparelli Suite at The Mayfair Hotel

Head to The Mayfair and book the Schiaparelli Suite to bathe in shades of fuchsia. The suite features an ornate velvet chaise lounge, pink-imbued floral curtains, a hot pink accent wall and mauve cushions. The suite also includes modern touches like the transparent Perspex chair and entertainment system, blending the suite’s 1930s pink interior with today’s modern luxuries.


Peggy Porschen Cakes

What better way to spend the afternoon than indulging in moist, delicious cakes amidst a photo-worthy shop? Peggy Porschen Cakes welcomes visitors with its muted pink exterior and flower arrangements beneath each window and around the front door. The bakery offers afternoon tea service, cupcakes and seasonal collections. With two locations in London, one in Chelsea and one in Belgravia, this shop is a must for pink lovers.


Tonight Josephine

This pink bar welcomes visitors with a sign reading “Well behaved women don’t make history,” before continuing its bold and inspiring designs and statements throughout the rest of the bar. A popular bar for London travelers, millennials and local city professionals, Tonight Josephine spreads its bold pink colors throughout its multiple locations across the United Kingdom, with two locations in London alone.


The Gallery

Perhaps one of the pinkest places in London, this elegant space features light pink ceilings and walls and rose-colored velvet chairs and table accents. Designed by India Mahdavi, this pink haven serves light bites and afternoon tea.
