The most recent addition to London's Somerset House, Pennethorne's Cafe Bar is a stunning upscale eatery inspired by the architecture of Italy and France. Named after Sir James Pennethorne, the architect responsible for Somerset House's 'New Wing,' the stunning cafe bar is the ultimate European brasserie.

Designed by the studio SHH, Somerset House's latest establishment is a mix of modernity and the era in which the building was built. The space is characterized by dark blue walls accented with bone white china mosaics and golden frames on the walls and black leather seating.

This quaint, upscale cafe bar is the perfect place to stop off for a cocktail before seeing some of Somerset House's exciting exhibitions.
