Social media is everything these days, and there’s nothing better than getting aesthetically pleasing pictures when you’re out with your friends. Thankfully, restaurants are stepping up their interior game, so there’s plenty to get good photos in; the question is, how do you find them? We’ve listed some of the most Instagram-worthy restaurants and in some of the biggest cities too. Hopefully, wherever you study, there will be one nearby! Here’s where we recommend:
Boujee – Manchester & Liverpool
If you’re looking for a restaurant that is all things pink, Boujee is the one. The restaurant is a Barbies dream and absolutely perfect for your Instagram photos. In fact, you won’t be the first to take pictures here; there are so many cool spots that people have already been sharing it everywhere across the gram. Not only is the restaurant Instagrammable, but they also have many selfie rooms connected to the restaurant so you can get some good content before you leave. You can pose as if you’re on a pink private jet, in front of your own shoe wardrobe or even in a barbie doll box. Besides that, they have plenty of aesthetic drinks and also a huge sushi menu to make sure you’re fed well too.
The Ivy – Almost everywhere
And we mean almost everywhere. The Ivy is a slightly more expensive but fancy restaurant that is a staple across the UK. The restaurants are always beautiful in decor, so if you’re looking for a classy background for your Instagram, it’s a good place to go. There’s plenty of The Ivy restaurants in London as well as York, Edinburgh, Leeds, Brighton and more. There are even some spin-offs to the restaurant like The Ivy Asia, which can be found in multiple places such as Manchester and offer a full Asian menu. The food they offer is very varied, but there are also so many options you’re guaranteed to like something. As mentioned, it’s slightly more expensive with mains being mostly between £10-£20, but you won’t get a better aesthetic anywhere else.
The Terrace Lopera – London
The Terrace Lopera is a Middle Eastern restaurant that is perfect for students because of its affordability. And of course, it’s a beautiful place too. The restaurant is full of plants alongside its fancy decor, making for some worthy photos. The chairs even have plant print backs, and their booths are all white and green to match. You also have the option to sit out the front if you like and watch the city go by. The food makes for great photos, and it’s enough to make your mouth water. If you’re looking to spice up your social media at a much lower price, this is the restaurant for you.
Aluna – Birmingham & Bristol
Who doesn’t love a cocktail bar?? Aluna is a cocktail bar with an international menu and dreamy decor. The Birmingham Bar is even situated next to the canal to make for a great view. Whether you take photos outside or inside on the bright orange booths, your Instagram is sure to be an eye-catcher. And if you think that’s impressive, you should see their drinks! The restaurant describes their mixologists as ‘social scientists’, so don’t be surprised if your drink arrives pouring with smoke. They make for beautiful pictures, and they don’t taste too bad either. The menu is also pretty affordable, with most mains being just over £10. The cocktails, however, are definitely more expensive but well worth the experience.
Bussey Rooftop Bar – London
Speaking of incredible views, if you want a stunning skyline in your backdrop Bussey Rooftop Bar is the one. There’s nothing better than a rooftop restaurant during fantastic weather, and in London, you’ve got plenty to choose from. This one, though, is slightly more affordable for the student lifestyle meaning your social media doesn’t have to suffer. Not only does the view look beautiful, but the restaurant itself has a fun tropical aesthetic for you to capture. The menu is pretty simple, but it also means it’s full of the classics. And best of all, it’s perfectly cheap too.
