It's all about Julie
Hippie cool, lush food, and Hollywood fame with Woody Allen
Location: 135 Portland Road, Holland Park, W11 4LW
Description: A magnet for over 40 years from the hippie generation and now to the ultra-cool London set. 'Julie's' has been referred to as the rock chick of the restaurant world.
Opened in 1969, the decadent originality of this iconic restaurant remains. A maze of glamorous rooms and eclectic furnishings with murals, church pews and pulpits, a honeycomb of small eating areas and alcoves each in a different style including a medieval private banqueting room, you can sink into golden velvet sofa's flanked by rich Indian carvings and stained glass window.
The great names from rock and roll, high society and Hollywood are still passing through their doors.
And it has also been a star in Hollywood!!
Yep, the 2005 dramatic thriller film 'Match Point' written and directed by Woody Allen which stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Scarlett Johansson, was filmed here.
In fact Chris (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and Nola (Scarlett Johansson) once stole a clandestine lunchbreak at this classy Holland Park restaurant.
