The new Tate Modern will bring fresh energy to London’s dining and drinking scene. The new Herzog & de Meuron designed, 10-storey Switch House extension of Tate Modern will be home to 100-seater Tate Modern Bar (Switch House, Level 1), Tate Modern Espresso Bar (Switch House, Level 2), a new Members Room (Switch House, Level 8), a 150-cover Tate Modern Restaurant (Switch House, Level 9), and Viewing Gallery (Switch House, Level 10).
Jeroen Schuijt, CEO, Tate Catering “With the new building comes the opportunity to showcase our talented chefs and staff, the excellent ingredients we source, the expert suppliers we use and our passion for service. Tate celebrates excellence and its ethos flows through our restaurants.” With around 5 million visitors a year, Tate Modern will offer food and drink to suit them all, from a cup of Tate roasted coffee and one of the Pastry Chef’s brownies made with Tate’s own blend chocolate; a Tate-gin and tonic, a glass of Tate-blended wine with a beautiful piece of sole; a glass of champagne whilst soaking up views of London, or rotisserie chicken and Tate craft beers in the bar and terrace.
The Turbine Hall will become the heart of the new Tate Modern, with the existing 6-storey Boiler House on one side and the new 10-storey Switch House rising above the Tanks on the other. It will offer a spectacular variety of spaces for visitors and for art, from the raw industrial Tanks to a panoramic roof terrace overlooking the London skyline. There will also be new urban spaces to the south and west of the building, completing the site’s transformation from a closed, industrial site to an open, public space.
In Tate Modern’s existing Boiler House building, visitors will also be able to enjoy the Tate Modern Cafe (Boiler House, Level 1), an Espresso Bar (Boiler House, Level 3), a refreshed Member’s Bar (Boiler House, Level 5) and the Tate Modern Kitchen & Bar (Boiler House, Level 6).
