Whether the movie was yay or nay for you, it was nevertheless wonderful to see Baz Luhrmann bring F. Scott Fitzgerald’s insight into the glam and glitz of America’s 1920s. While the 1920s are dead, we’ve got a handful of eateries to thank that give us beautifully outfitted interiors that make us reminiscent of The Great Gatsby. Here are 3 we like:
With stilted symmetrical lines of light, walls embellished with fine art and well-fitted interiors for an intimate evening, The English House is a preservation of the golden age. With the perfect blend of cosiness and ostentatiousness, the air of elegance it evokes is reminiscent of the opulent parties described in Fitzgerald’s book – perfect with the cuisine head chef Marco Pierre White whips up here.
With a hanging wall garden and plenty of greenery throughout the establishment, Don Ho combines both industrial and tropical garden into one fluid theme that makes it a true Insta-worthy addition to the gram. Combined with its east-west fusion cuisine, it’s a shoo-in for where a modern-day Jay Gatsby would want to have his parties.

The Winery Tapas Bar looks like it came straight from the set of The Great Gatsby. With dark wood furnishing, the bar plays well with shadows and well-placed lighting to give it a mysterious and intimate atmosphere. Taking centrestage, however, are its kitchen offerings, with ham croquetas, mini wagyu burgers and prawn ajillo available for ravishing diners.
