From adjusting room layouts to creating more natural light, the benefits of rejuvenating a space and giving it a brand new look usually benefits everyone in the long term.
Spring itself is typically considered to be a time of growth and renewal – and it seems that these seasonal associations have had an effect on some of Bankside’s venues. Camino Bankside, The Table Cafe and etc.venues Prospero House have all recently undergone refurbishment and they’re ready to unveil some exciting new features.

The newest member to the Camino family, Camino Bankside is located just behind Tate Modern. This February, the restaurant underwent a dramatic refurbishment to the main dining space.
The bar, originally the central point of the room, has been swapped with the main restaurant area, allowing more space for up to 70 seated and 100 standing. The buzzing open kitchen and dramatic glass wall surroundings, also gives the space a sense of openness and animation. On the upper level, guests can find a private dining mezzanine space which is ideal for smaller gatherings and even corporate meetings.
Overall, Camino Bankside offers a beautiful space whatever the occasion – the venue is now full of natural light by day and softly lit for an intimate mood by night. As for the food, they’ve just unveiled their spring menu which is sure to delight a variety of palates.

A real Bankside hidden gem and top independent eatery, The Table Cafe has been run by Shaun Alpine-Crabtree, in partnership with the architectural practice Allies & Morrison for nearly a decade. The restaurant has just opened a brand new bar space which is a particularly exciting addition for the venue.
When it comes to summer party events, The Table Cafe is already a sought-after choice, however their new bar gives you all the more reason to host an alfresco drinks reception at the venue. Their cocktail menu (devised by the legend David Swain, previously of The Zetter) takes inspiration from seasonal, botanical ingredients and British spirits.
Also take a look at their inventive wine list created by the award-winning Matt Walls – it’s a stunning yet compact list featuring many organic, natural and biodynamic wines.
