RIBA CafeLondon’s architecture seamlessly blends the old and new world together, and there could not be a more appropriate place to admire this fluid magnificence than at the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Café & Restaurant. Only five minutes from Oxford Circus, RIBA offers a private yet exciting dining experience with the fresh and natural Modern European menu by Michelin-starred chef David Cavalier. Relax on the spacious sunlit roof terrace of this 1930s, Grade II-listed building or recline indoors and admire the funky award-winning architect-designed café-bar and stunning interior of this constructor’s playhouse.
