Pharmacy 2 – An Artful Dining Experience

Art feeds the soul. Or so they say. But if you are looking for something a bit more — ahem — substantial, you should head to Pharmacy 2. Damien Hirst, famous for his medicine cabinet-inspired paintings and installations — most of which sold for millions — has partnered with Mark Hix, English chef extraordinaire. Their new restaurant — Pharmacy 2 — launched at Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhall on 23rd February 2016. It serves classic British and European food, catering for visitors to the exhibitions throughout the day, and evening diners when the gallery is closed.

The menu is a piece of art in itself, with one of our favourite dishes being a shaved winter squash with Treviso and Graceburn cheese. A selection  of killer cocktails is also available, including the famous Hix Fix (Morello cherry in Somerset apple eau de view topped with sparkling wine), as well as some non-alcoholic cocktails – Shirley Temple (Luscombe ginger beer, Mark’s grenadine and lime) is a definite must-have!

Pharmacy 2’s interior is decorated with some of Damien Hirst’s iconic art pieces and features a display of real medicine cabinet items. Overall a very modern restaurant and and and incredibly immersive arty experience, highly recommended!
