Hg2 : The Hedonist

On Sundays at the Watari-um

Culture and coffee are the perfect companions at On Sundays, the underground café hidden among piles of art and design books in the basement of the Watari Museum of Contemporary Art (otherwise known as the Watari-um). A monochrome striped building on an otherwise grey street in Gaienmae, the Watari-um – designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta – is the spacious home for an array of imaginative international contemporary art exhibitions.

After taking in the latest exhibition – past shows range from Barry McGee graffiti to Aloïse Corbaz’s erotic etchings – head downstairs to On Sundays. Wander past its ground floor design store – selling an addictive selection of stationary, leather goods and vintage post cards – and into the basement. Here, walls are lined with art, photography and design books, which are also for sale. Sit at a table and indulge in a signature chai tea while flicking through your favorite art tomes.
