Pictured here is the OXO tower on the South bank of the Thames.
If you are looking to eat here, there are a few cafes on the ground floor of the building—one being an EAT location. If you’re looking for something more unique, the OXO Tower Bar and Brassiere both offer more affordable options, especially in comparison to the high-end Restaurant. The Bar has an assortment of bar food plates and a very reasonable lunch special offered 7 days a week from 12pm until 5pm. The Brassiere offers both two- and three- course lunch and dinner options for under £30.
The ceiling in the restaurant has an interesting history. It features panels that are royal blue on one side and white on the other. During the day, the restaurant used the white panels to reflect the bright sunshine and give the dining room an awake, airy feel. They signified a change to the dinner period by flipping the panels; the now royal blue ceiling gave the room a cool, tranquil ambiance. The restaurant stopped alternating ceiling colors when one of the panels fell from the ceiling and struck a woman in the arm. Ever since, the panels are kept in a stationary position so that from one angle the ceiling appears blue and from another it appears white.
