The Olympic Studios re-opened at the end of 2013 as a cinema, café and dining room. This followed a lengthy renovation from it's previous incarnation as a recording studio, which hosted the likes of David Bowie, Rolling Stones, and many more. It's new incarnation as a friendly, local eatery is a welcome addition to the Barnes dining scene.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week, the menu features a good range of dishes, from savoury pastries and salads, to meat from the grill, sandwiches, and small sharing plates. There's also a good selection of cocktails and wines, as well as coffees available from the excellent café bar.
The Olympic Cinema, in the same building, shows a range of recent Hollywood blockbusters, as well as smaller independent films from around the globe. The cinema was also one of the first in the country to feature the new Dolby Atmos sound system, making for an impressively immersive auditory experience. Grab some food before ambling through and catching the 8pm showing.
