Light Restaurant & BarThe Light Bar and Restaurant occupies a former power station commission by the Great Eastern Railway company in the late 1800s to provide electrical lighting to Liverpool Street Station. The building retains many of its original features including exposed brickwork, timber and some of the original lifting mechanism.
