Enter Barbican Lounge stage-left; decked out by starchitects SHH, one of the most stylish restaurants in London holds no less than 230 drinkers and diners amid a setting of natural wood, Scandinavian furniture and unusual light installations. The menu is bang on-trend with small, British-inspired sharing plates and a ‘Dine & Dash’ menu that’ll see patrons out the door in no more than 50 minutes (or their money back). Though take it from us, the braised pork belly and roasted pear is not to be rushed! If you need a little something to wash it all down with, then try a cool cocktail such as a classic Dirty Martini or Champagne Julep. Just make sure you’re not going on stage afterwards.
