Situated on the 10th floor of The Standard, London, Decimo features two separate bar areas, main restaurant which showcases live fire cooking. Next door to Decimo is Sweeties our late night lounge. You will also find our Event Spaces located on floors 8 & 9 hosting everything from private dinners to parties.
