It’s an unusual pairing, but a big new dining and retail space in Belgravia brings together Japanese and Nordic offerings. Launching on 22 September, Pantechnicon features a a pan-Nordic restaurant, a Japanese dining gallery, roof garden, specialist bottle shop and bar, and the UK’s first permanent outlet of Café Kitsuné.
Spanning five floors on Montcomb Street, the community destination aims to celebrate and explore Japanese and Nordic cultures through its food, drink, retail and design offering.
“Together our mission is to have fun creating a platform for new creative talent from Japan and the Nordics and to share our discoveries with everyone, all in one place” says co-founder Barry Hirst. “Both cultures have a lot in common from their relationship with nature to their passion for simplicity and functionality in design.”
The classic columned exterior opens into a warehouse-style interior, with guests first met by Café Kitsuné serving Japanese inspired pastries and lunch dishes. The space opens up to the 100 seat Sachie restaurant, bar, cocktail lounge and street terrace, set to open in Spring 2021.
A further two restaurants – Eldr showcasing Nordic cooking methods and the 130-cover Roof Garden – join a gallery and concept store showcasing a curation of 150 Japanese and Nordic brands.
