For those who are new to my blog, this column is about places that inspire me, places with an excellent interior, artwork and creative flair.
One of the benefits of working on the Southbank is a plethora of places to go for lunch or a drink. Nevertheless, one gets excited about new openings in the area, especially if it’s another creation of Mark Hix.
I went to Tramshed in Shoreditch some time ago, but still remember its excellent interior and displayed artwork.
Hixter Bankside doesn’t disappoint either. The space used to be a metal box factory, and the design highlights the key features like the big windows, brick-work and metal doors and fixtures.
Wherever you turn, you can spot modern art pieces by well-established and up-and-coming artists. The front neon sign (I love it) has been designed by Tracy Emin, and the Frozen Custard sign is by Rob& Nicky Carter.
The black ceiling in the front dining area looks marvelous.
Our lunch was delicious, and not a bad value. Definitely want to come back for a cocktail.
Have you been to Hixter? What did you like the most?
Have a good week.
