Tate Modern launches new food and drink venues

Tate Modern, one of London’s top museums of contemporary art, unveils its new Switch House building on 17 June. As well as offering a host of exciting new exhibitions, the gallery will boast an espresso bar, viewing gallery and fine-dining restaurant, making Tate Modern even more of a must-visit than ever before

Sally McIlhone,

The recently expanded Tate Modern opens the doors to its Switch House building on 17 June, and visitors can explore a range of enticing new dining experiences. The 10-storey extension, designed by architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, presents the Tate Modern Espresso Bar, 150-cover Tate Modern Restaurant, top-floor Viewing Gallery and 100-seater Tate Modern Bar. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a gin and tonic, made with the gallery’s own Tate Gin, or sample a delicious dish of cured haddock with golden beetroot, samphire and cockle consommé, you’ll be well catered for.

Welcoming around five million visitors each year, the world-renowned Tate Modern offers dining and drinking options to match the calibre of the stunning art on display in its halls. The new food and beverage areas complement the stellar venues in the existing Boiler House building, which include the Tate Modern Café, Espresso Bar, renovated Member’s Bar and the Tate Modern Kitchen & Bar on level six. With such a range of choices available, the perfect place to refuel and take a break between exhibits is never far away.
