The Portrait

Following in the recent footsteps of the National Theatre opening Lasdun by the Marksman team and the Royal Academy’s partnership with José Pizarro (restaurant and tapas bar) are two new venues in the National Portrait Gallery, which is reopening this Thursday. Larry’s (also opening Thursday) is an underground cocktail bar in the part of the gallery that used to be used for coal storage, and will be serving drinks and bar snacks with over 100 of the gallery’s portraits on the wall. Then, 5 July will see Richard Corrigan open The Portrait restaurant on the top floor of the gallery, with views across London. Bookings are now open.
