With lockdown lifting, it’s time to start exploring and the Pantechnicon on Motcomb Street is an excellent place to start. A historic 5 storey building devoted to Nordic and Japanese restaurants and shopping as well as a series of workshops and experiences; this is a celebration of creativity and craftsmanship. The ground floor features Café Kitsuné serving an exquisite range of Japanese-inspired breakfasts, lunches, salads and pastries. The Edit – also located on the ground floor – is the perfect place to pick up anything from handcrafted gifts to designer tech from carefully curated Japanese and Nordic brands.
Fast forward up to the third floor of the Pantechnicon, and you’ll find an all-seasons roof garden (south facing), where visitors can enjoy a delightful menu inspired by travels through Japan and the Nordics and buzzing with young and fun energy.
You can take a culinary journey from Osaka, Hokkaido to Copenhagen, Reykjavik, Oslo and more and try the deliciously Nordic cocktail menu created by a team of young and talented bartenders from across the region. Escape the busy London streets and dine under stars surrounded by the Nordic garden designed by Finnish horticulturalist Taina Suonio.
