The definitive guide to London dining & events

...Places near the Tate Britain

Date: 06.04.11 Category:

“Whilst I can't guarantee a supernatural or visionary experience, combining a gallery visit with a bite to eat and a glass of wine is bound to be a pleasant one.”

Early-risers can start the day with breakfast at The Cinnamon Club before the gallery opens at 10am. As an added incentive to start the day, Lady Blonde subscribers will receive 2-for-1 on all breakfast dishes when booking a table via LadyBlonde.com.

Following a late visit (the Tate Britain is open until 10pm on the first Friday of the month), night owls are encouraged to scale Millbank Tower for stellar views and cocktails at the recently opened London Sky Bar within Altitude 360. And if Susan Hiller's ethereal images have left your subconscious mind in need of awakening, live jazz at Boisdale of Belgravia kicks off at 10pm (Monday to Saturday).

Just a short stroll from the Tate Britain, Belgravia is dotted with swish little gastro pubs, perfect for a drink or a casual bite before or after the exhibition. Towards Victoria, The Phoenix and The Thomas Cubitt both provide a good selection of lunch and snack offerings in relaxed surroundings. And if the afternoon calls for some retail therapy, The Orange and The Ebury make for a good pitstop en route to Sloane Square.
