Foodie revolution blowing through the Barbican
TWO new dining spaces have opened at the Barbican Centre to help hungry visitors stave off those mid-show pangs of hunger.
The Barbican Foodhall offers a selection of foods at counter-top bars and deli-tables on the waterside at the Silk Street venue, while upstairs the Barbican Lounge specialises in small-plate menus themed around dairy, veggie, meat, fowl, fish or pudding.
General Manager Nikki Woods said: “The concept is to create a destination for people who have a genuine love of food. Our menu is filled with moreish small plates, so guests no longer have to suffer food envy or make any difficult decisions. You can try a little bit of everything and then just order a little bit more if you fancy.”
The interior design of the two new spaces was done by award-winning architects and designers SHH.
Sir Nicholas Kenyon, managing director of Barbican Centre, said: “we’re really excited about the transformation of our food offering. The spaces are being stripped right back to the original wall textures and fittings, so it really feels like a natural and organic development of our iconic centre.
