J. Sheekey in Covent Garden has been a British institution since 1896 when it first started catering to the after-theater crowd. It regained glamour when it was taken over by the owners of the Ivy more than a decade ago. Today, you'll find four clubby, interconnecting rooms decorated with black and white photos and a 30-seat horseshoe bar with classic mirrors and zinc countertops. The effect recreates the authentic Old World oyster bar that Joseph Sheekey first ran and is so convincingly done, you may expect ladies in white gloves and men in bowler hats to appear at the table or barstool next to you.
