RIBA Restaurant

 

The RIBA Restaurant is a well-kept secret among people who dine there, whether they are RIBA members or members of the public.

In the Florence Hall the restaurant offers one of the most striking, peaceful and luxurious dining settings in the whole of London: sumptuous semi-circular banquettes and conventional dining tables spaciously arranged on a stunning wood and marble floor and flooded by daylight from the full-height windows on either side.  Within the room is a changing programme of fascinating architectural exhibitions which guests can enjoy before or after eating.

Enjoy lunch from a fresh, creative, seasonal menu in airy, sophisticated surroundings. On sunny days, it feels like dining outside and, during the summer months, you really can dine al fresco, when we open the doors on the adjoining terrace.

RIBA Bar

 

On the ground floor, opposite our bookshop, is the RIBA Bar. Inspired by the traditional continental bakery and with cool Modernist styling by Azman Architects, it is a great spot to stop and enjoy a coffee, tea, snack or pastry.

Start your day with a breakfast sandwich, cereal or fruit salad. For something more substantial around lunchtime, get creative at the salad bar and mix and match our healthy, fresh, crisp salads. And, if you’re here after work, drop in or meet a friend for a beer, glass of wine or a cocktail.

Opening times:

Mon - Fri: 8am - 7pm

Tues: 8am - 9pm

Sat: 9am - 5pm
