Barbican Restaurants: Brutalism meets cuvée brut. The Barbican Centre is one of London’s most distinctive landmarks, polarising opinion with its imposing Brutalist architecture. However, as the largest performing arts centre in Europe, hosting classical nd contemporary concerts, film, exhibitions, and theatre, restaurants in the Barbican and restaurants near Barbican tube station are often busy. Barbican restaurants cater to theatregoers and sightseers, with many a nearby Barbican restaurant giving diners a view of the Centre’s formidable towers. Bounded to the south by London Wall and the Museum of London, to the east by Moorgate, and to the north by Beech Street, Chiswell Street, and Silk Street, the labyrinthine complex of the Barbican itself and the surrounding area offers plenty of options when it comes to restaurants.
