The Bauhaus Bar and Café at 66 Portland Place

Our Bauhaus Bar and Café offers a dedicated space for architects and friends to meet and socialise on the ground floor of RIBA's Art-Deco landmark headquarters building at 66 Portland Place, London. The room has been designed as a nod to the architectural style of the Bauhaus movement, and all colours are based on its bold and unique aesthetic. 

The bar and café is the perfect spot for a bite to eat while catching up on emails or for meeting up with colleagues or friends for lunch in the heart of Central London, just a 5 minute walk from Regent's Park and a 10 minute walk from the world famous shopping road, Oxford Street. Our bar and café is also an ideal place for a quick drink before one of our talks and events or for letting off steam after a day in the office.

The bar and café is open to members, guests and the wider public, with a 20% discount for RIBA Members and Friends with a flash of your membership card.

The bar and café serves up reasonably priced beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks and bar snacks. The food is prepared daily by our in-house and award-winning caterers, CH&CO. There is a delicious chefs special of the day, choices include mac n cheese or Irish stew, served with an innovative flair. We also have a selection of sandwiches, crisps and freshly baked cakes; including caramel & latte layer cake, a sticky ginger loaf, raspberry meringue drizzle or a blueberry swirl cheesecake.

The opening hours are usually 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday. In response to the current concerns regarding public health and safety, we will be closing at 5pm daily for the time being. 

Available for private hire by prior arrangement with our venues team.
