The Magazine at Zaha Hadid's Serpentine Sackler Gallery is first permanent home to Pret A Diner

Pret A Diner, the inventive curators of magical international dining experiences, have announced that their first permanent restaurant will open this November at the Zaha Hadid-designed Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London’s Kensington Gardens. The Magazine restaurant will be open 10am to 6pm, Tuesday to Sunday and guests can enjoy the culinary expertise of Oliver ‘Ollysan’ Lange of the Pret A Diner team. Bookings can be made here.

The Serpentine Sackler Gallery is the result of a £14.5m project which has transformed a 208-year-old Grade II* listed building into an art gallery, restaurant and meeting space. The Magazine was constructed in 1805 as a munitions store for gunpowder during the Napoleonic wars and has since been used for military parades and as home to the Crystal Palace of the Great Exhibition of 1851. With the opening of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, The Magazine is now open to the public for the first time.
